Size guide - Pack of 3 Large Plug Plants 

Pot Ready, Large, Healthy plants individually rooted in large plugs of compost. Ideal for planting into baskets, containers or small areas in the garden. Best results achieved if grown on for a short while in 9cm/10cm pots prior to planting out if planting straight into garden borders. Tender varieties will need protecting from frost. Compost volume around 4-5cm deep x 3-4cm square. Foliage height 5cm-12cm (depending on variety). Full growing instructions are provided.

Heleniums need to be grown in full sun or partial sun to give their best and will be happy in moist but well-drained neutral soil. To extend the flowering season it is worth while cutting back a third of the stems to around two thirds of their height. This will prolong the flowering season well into autumn. Heleniums will last well over a week as cut flowers. Remove the bottom leaves before putting into the vase.

Helenium (Sneezeweed) are easy to grow perennials that are loved by bees. The daisy type flowers are essential for autumn colour and give a bright blast of rich colours to late summer/autumn garden borders. The common name of Sneezeweed refers to the olden day practice of the flowers being ground down and used as snuff which induced sneezing and sneezing was thought to expel the body of evil spirits!
