On delivery, please plant bareroot perennials at the earliest opportunity. Should soil conditions prevent planting directly into borders (if soil is frozen or waterlogged), pot up bareroots, water sparingly and grow on in a cool position. Choose a sunny position in well drained soil. Work some compost or general fertiliser into the top 20cm of the soil. Dig a hole wide enough to accommodate the bareroot with its roots spread out and deep enough that the crown of the plant is just a few cm below soil level. Backfill the hole with soil and firm plant in gently. Leave a slight depression around the plant - this will help to direct water towards the roots. Water well to settle the soil.
In autumn, remove old foliage and apply a mulch of well rotted manure to the base of the plant. Lift and divide hardy perennials in autumn every third year to maintain their vigour.

I bought a perennial offer, I received 48 plants for an extremely bargain price and planted them on into pots, they are all doing well.
Van Meuwen has such good offers, any ones gardens can look wonderful and it doesn't cost a fortune Thank you Van Meuwen also for all your tips and help.

These have just arrived and I am well impressed. You posted them in Guernsey on Thursday and on Saturday morning they were on my doorstep! I have ordered bare rooted plants before from other companies and they just like like brown twigs but these (all 40 of them) have signs of life with shoots all over the place - I'm suprised they fitted in the box!
All in all a brilliant product and brilliant service. Thanks Van Meuwen.
