Additional Information

Great for borders and containers. Once established, Nemesia need little care, although they will require a deep and thorough watering to keep the soil moist throughout active growth. It is advised that you pinch out the growing tips as this will produce a much bushier plant. Nemesia will benefit from a slow release fertiliser, applying only once throughout active growth. Half Hardy Perennial. It is possible to propagate Nemesia by softwood cuttings in the spring or summer.

"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"
