Size guide - Pack of 5 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.

Osteospermum Advice

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.

Growing Advice

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.

***For packs of 20/40 plug plants gently remove the small plugs from the tray by pushing up from the bottom using a pencil.

These were good plug plants and made decent sized bedding plants. So far the flowers have been good and I hope they will continue for the rest of the summer.

Well this was my first ever order with you and this was to have been the main reason I ordered from you (the other items are in any B & Q) but when the ordered arrived, it included an apology that these were not available!!
To be fair, my experience of other nurseries has been that they sent out sub-quality plants that died and then waited for me to claim a credit. Your delivery included a note of apology and you automatically credited me. You could not have done more - plants are not robots.

You have a cheek! Asking me to review 3 lots of plug plants. 3 lots you not only didn't supply,but didn't have the goodness to let me know. Only when I sent you an e-mail advising you they had not arrived, did you let me know they were not being supplied. Not at all pleased. Bet this won't get posted.


Response:

Our apologises that the email was sent. Unfortunately the decision to not send these plants was made on the last checks, and as the quality of the plants we send out is paramount we would prefer not to send the plants if we feel they do not meet our standards and will not make the journey so we can only apologise that this has upset you.
