This stunning newer variety of polyanthus has sturdy flower stems that flower mid-season. The flowers have attractive tricoloured tones of red, yellow and orange. Plant our professionally produced Polyanthus plugs into trays or pots. Grow on for around 6|7 weeks then plant out into garden borders & patio pots.  

If you have received these plug plants by the end of August, they will need planting in either grower cell trays or small grower pots for around 6 weeks before you put them in their final place. If you receive them September onward these need to be overwintered in their pots to allow for root establishment and these can then be planted out around February. Below is an estimated growing guide.

Primrose and Polyanthus advice. Primroses and Polyanthus are a firm favourite for Autumn and Winter gardens due to their hardy nature. These plants like a shaded area rather than full sun and some of our collection offer early flowering that will last through the summer if given the right conditions. Here are a few tips in helping them to flower for longer and produce great healthy flowers When you receive your plants make sure you’ve grown them on in suitable pots to help the roots mature before planting them in their final growing position. Primroses and Polyanthus prefer a shaded area but can tolerate sunny spots as long as well watered so as not to let the soil dry out. Try and plant your plants around 15cms apart keeping the base of the stem at soil level. Once planted make sure you use a good feed to encourage the best growth and flowering. We recommend Neudorff Organic Multi Purpose Plant Feed, great for encouraging bigger blooms and longer lasting flowers and also pet and child safe. Careful attention to the pruning of these will help them grow for longer, when the flower starts to fade then take the head off to encourage more flowering.
