When is the best time to plant this combination and is there any special instructions for planting?

Townmouse

Hello, As all the plants are fully hardy, they can be planted at any time of the year provided the ground is not waterlogged or frozen. The best times however are traditionally thought to be the spring or autumn. The risk in leaving this too late though is that the rose may become unavailable later in the season - and that is best planted now. As for planting instructions, we have a little more information on the individual plant cards, so please click on the following links to go straight to them Rosa https://www.crocus.co.uk/plants/_/rosa-reine-des-violettes/classid.1000001991/ Astrantia https://www.crocus.co.uk/plants/_/astrantia-major-claret/classid.2000010594/ Salvia https://www.crocus.co.uk/plants/_/salvia--sylvestris-mainacht/classid.2000010852/

Helen

Are these perennials that will come up next year?

Suse

Hello, The rose is a shrub, while the astrantia and the salvia are both perennial, so yes, they will come back each year.

Helen

What size are the plant pots included in this package? Are they the smaller 9cm pots or 2L pots? Many thanks.

HH

Hello, The Astrantia and the Salvia are in 9cm pots, while the rose is bare-root, but recently potted up into a 4-litre pot.
