Can be grown in all soil types from August-September. Hardy to -20°C.

On  receipt of your plants remove them from the packaging immediately, and water if necessary.

PLANTING - Prior to planting the trees and shrubs, dig over the area to two spades depth and incorporate a generous amount of garden compost or well-rotted manure. A dressing of bonemeal can also be applied at a rate of 105-140grms per sq.m (3-4 oz per sq yd). Dig out the hole about 15cm (6") wider than the root-ball and deep enough so that its top is just below the soil surface. Gently tease out some of the roots from around the root-ball to encourage new root growth to spread out into the surrounding soil. Fill in the hole around the plant gently firming the soil as you go. Water the plant to settle the soil around the roots.

Ideal for beds and borders, patio pots and containers, hanging baskets, rockeries. Attractive to pollinators. Prefers full sun.
