Care Guide

Good pest and disease resistance

Please see individual product pages for more details

Water regularly

Water the plants to keep the soil consistently moist. During hot spells this means watering the plants at least once a day. For plants in hanging baskets, you may need to water twice a day if they look dry.

Full sun

Your plants will thrive in a sunny, sheltered spot where they will receive at least 6 hours of sunlight everyday but will also benefit from some shade during the hottest parts of the day.

Fertile, well-draining soil

The best soil to use is a quality potting mix or garden compost which is filled with rich organic matter and drains water away easily.

Feed regularly

Feed every two weeks during the growing period with a general purpose plant food. https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0513/3428/3424/files/pruning_3x_4d3eaf73-f629-45e0-87a5-6f14f5f005fc.png?v=1613300718
