Osteospermum Serenity Blushing Beauty | 5 Large Plug Plants£6.99
The golden yellow colour and purple/pink centre offer a warm, romantic touch and look amazing in the summer sun.
The petals of this variety of Osteospermum FlowerPower are a brilliant white and one of the best ‘whites’ we have seen, making a perfect foil for contrasting colours.
This is a compact, bushy variety and flowers over a long season from early summer to the first frosts.
Being a tender perennial, Osteospermum can be susceptible to cold and frosty conditions so give it a position in the garden that has some shelter from the coldest winter weather.

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.
Osteospermum belong to the daisy family and originate from Southern Africa, hence their common name - Cape Daisy or African Daisy.
Osteospermum thrive when grown in a sunny aspect, so always plant them in a border that has full sun or partial sun and preferably in a warm sheltered area.
Water the plants regularly especially during their first season as they do not like to dry out and feed them throughout the summer too to help promote flowering.
Deadhead the faded flowers to prolong the flowering season and remove most of the stem too to keep the plant looking neat and tidy.
Osteospermum respond well to pruning so cut them back either in early spring or in the autumn.
Although many Osteospermum are listed as annuals, they are half-hardy perennials. This is because they are not entirely hardy and will not probably survive a long series of winter frosts. But they can be propagated by taking cuttings in the autumn or you could try over-wintering them in a frost-free spot.
Using a good quality multi-purpose compost, pot up your plugs into 10cm pots. Once your plug plants have been potted on and labelled, water them in well and grow on for around 5-6 weeks. Water once the compost starts to dry out.
If preferred you can pot on the plugs into hanging baskets, flower bags or pots. Add a slow release plant food like Miracle-Gro Slow Release All Purpose Plant Food to your compost which will give extra nutrients for strong and healthy plant growth.
Keep plants frost free until mid/late May and then harden off before being placed in their final positions when the risk of frost has passed in your area.
Water as necessary giving a liquid feed such as Neudorff Organic Plant Feed as instructed throughout the growing season.
Good strong plants,flowering within a week of delivery.
Nice plants which were well packaged on arrival. Potted on and all OK

Good strong plants
I have worked in high end Garden Centres as a plant buyer and the quality of these Young Plants is the best l have seen, they arrived quickly in perfect condition and now they are all potted up they are thriving, luckily down here on the south coast bedding plants go out late April so hardening off is next then it's all systems go, cant wait to see these plants flower. I will be back next spring for more.
