Caution: irritant to skin and eyes. Pot up Laurentia plants into 9cm pots and grow on for transplanting into final containers or baskets later on. Alternatively, plant Laurentia plugs directly into flower pouches. Grow on in warm frost free conditions until plants are large enough to be transplanted into their final containers and bedding displays.
When all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise Laurentia plants to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days before planting out in any moist, well drained soil in full sun. Feed and water Isotoma plants regularly, particularly during hot, dry periods.

Van Meuwen strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3.
