Selecting The Right Perennial Plant

Our perennials are supplied as large, well established potted plants delivered directly to your door. To get the best results it is worth taking more care when you plant them.

Once you have selected the right spot in your borders or patio containers, the plants can planted straightaway. Dig over the area, incorporating garden compost or other well-rotted organic material to help retain moisture, this is especially important on light, sandy soils.

Prior to planting, rake in a general fertiliser such as Growmore or Bonemeal. Take out a hole large enough to accommodate the root ball so that the top is level with the compost surface.

Fill in around the roots with soil or a mixture of soil and potting compost, firming as you go. Water the plants immediately after planting to settle the soil around the roots. It is important to keep the plants well-watered during dry spells.
