Additional Information

As a young plant, the root system rather than the top growth dictates the quality of plant that you have received. Once the plant has been potted on for about 6-8 weeks, we suggest that you cut back the top growth to 3cm with a pair of scissors. This allows the roots to mature in the new pot and a perfect flush of foliage with reappear. Also cut back to 15cm after each flush of flowers once the plant has matured. Provides good ground cover. Reliably floriferous. Slug and rabbit proof. Apply a light scattering of general fertilizer around the plants in spring. Propagate by division in the spring. Fully hardy perennial.

Plant Hardiness

How hardy are our plants?

All our plants have a guideline temperature for how well they will tolerate winter cold.

Fully hardy perennials will withstand temperatures down to -15 °C (5°F) and often lower.
Hardy perennials are happy down to at least -5°C (23°F)
Half hardy perennials can withstand down to around 0°C (32°F)
And Tender perennials may be damaged by temperatures below 5°C (41°F)

Please remember that temperatures can vary significantly within quite a small area, and hardiness can be affected by soil, position and other factors.
If in doubt please give us a call.

"Thank you ladies for your beautiful plants.
Praise also, for the Bulrush Compost, of which I have purchased 8 bags during the past six months. It is superb and my garden has flourished.
Bless you,
Kind wishes"
