Bought these to fill one of the borders of my garden and also some containers. These plugs arrived in a healthy condition and continued to grow when potted on. After hardening off and planting out all plants have grown to a fantastic size and I am experiencing a fantastic display of beautifully coloured blooms. Would highly recommend these, they are worth every penny!

How many of these plants should I order to fill a border of 30 square feet?Asked on 12/2/2017 by purplefingers from Gloucester
It really depends on the effect you are trying to creat - and how patient you are. These are plug plants at present, so should be potted up and grown on, but once planted out (after all risk of frost has passed), they can grow to around 40cm (16") across. Therefore in theory, you could plant just one per square foot if you like. I however always plant bedding densely as I like a really full effect, so would plant 3 or even 5 per square foot.Answered on 13/2/2017 by Helen from crocus

If you do nothing else...water new plants. Make sure new additions do not suffer during dry spells. Plant up summer containers bedding once the threat of frosts has passed. Feed container plants about six weeks after planting. If it’s a nice day...trim heRead full article
After the last frost date, plant up containers with tender flowering bedding and reliable foliage plants. Line terracotta pots with polythene, taking care not to cover the planting holes, to reduce water loss through the porous sides of the pot.Read full article
