Description How to Grow Delivery

Streptocarpus 'Bristol's Very Best' is a floriferous variety, producing masses of deep magenta flowers with flushes of pale pink and dark stripes around the throat held above a neat rosette of dark green, wrinkled foliage. Streptocarpus are easy-care flowering houseplants. Keep them in bright, indirect light and they will reliably produce their exotic and colourful blooms for several months. Height: 30cm (12in). Spread: 30cm (12in).

March to September

Place your Streptocarpus in a bright spot but not in prolonged direct sunlight – an east or west-facing windowsill is perfect. Water regularly as the compost begins to dry out but avoid letting the plant sit in water. Feed fortnightly with a high-potash feed (diluted to half strength) to maximise flowering. Cut back spent flower stalks to the base to encourage more to form. As the plant grows, repot as necessary in spring into a slightly larger pot.

October to February

Move to a south facing windowsill if possible. Only water when the compost dries out and don’t feed. Remove any dead leaves and debris to minimise the chance of pests and diseases.

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.
