Size guide - 9cm Garden Ready Pot

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.

Delphiniums, Digitalis and Lupins are quintessential cottage garden plants reaching up to heady heights of around 50-60cms (depending on the variety) and are more columnar than widely spreading, so they work really well planted towards the back of the border to set off other mid-size plants. They also make eye-catching cut flowers for arrangements and displays.

Special requirements - Slugs love to munch on emerging young shoots of Delphiniums and Lupins. If you can deter them without the use of slug pellets, all the better, but if you have to, sprinkle pellets around the base of the plants. You will need to reapply after rainfall.

As most of our varieties are tall, they will probably need staking and tying in as they grow during the season so that any windy weather doesn’t blow them over.
