All shrubs in this collection can be planted in borders in any moist well drained soil. Position in a sunny or semi shaded site. Feed and water regularly throughout the growing season while young plants become established. Older plants will require only occasional attention.
With the exception of Buddleja, which should be pruned hard to 3 or 4 buds in spring, all other shrubs in this collection can be pruned immediately after flowering. Prune out flowered stems to 3 strong buds above ground level and reduce remaining stems to restrict shrubs to the space available.
We will do our best to ship your plants or bulbs to you at the ideal time for planting as stated against each product. We recommend that you prepare your soil, planting beds or patio containers ahead of time so you are ready to plant out, or pot on, just as soon as your order arrives. You will find the name of the variety printed on the top line of the address label on your package. Please ensure that you open the packaging immediately and carefully read through the instruction leaflet provided. For greatest success, please pot on or plant out as soon as possible, following the cultural instructions enclosed with your order.
