9cm Potted Plant specially selected and grown in our nursery. Planted in Taupe Grey pots these are fully recyclable, along with the plastic packaging they arrive in.
These are Garden Ready so you can just plant and go, no extra growing time needed, just regular pruning and maintenance to get the best out of your plants, the size is based on the pot and compost volume, foliage will vary from plant type, picture is for illustration purposes only.
Aquilegias are pretty additions to the spring/summer border especially if you are creating a cottage garden/woodland feel. Plant them in multi-purpose compost into pots to grow on and transfer them into their flowering position in any soil in late spring. Space them 30cms apart.
Initially, it is best to plant them in fertile well-drained soil in either full sun or partial shade.
Aquilegias have long tap roots (meaning they search for water) so they are quite drought tolerant, once established.
Excellent plants and arrived promptly in very good condition. Considering current situation congratulations to you.
Three very nice plants arrived safely this time, Royal Mail delivered them quickly and alive unlike previous order, very pleased with them, they are growing away nicely.
