Our plants are supplied as young plants, potted plants, bare roots, bulbs or corms. This will be specified in both the code and product description as to the form in which your plants arrive with you.
Young plants are grown in the ideal plug size to provide the best conditions required during the first stage of each plant's development. Young plants usually measure between 8-15cm (3-6") from root base to stem tip, although they are often larger. In ideal conditions, they may be planted directly into the ground, however, we recommend they are potted on for 3-4 weeks to develop a strong root system prior to planting out.
Potted plants arrive in 5cm, 7cm and 9cm containers and are the next stage of development from young plants. Potted plants are perfect for those who like instant gardening where they can be planted straight out after arrive or grown on in pots a little while longer.
Bare roots may look a little ugly on arrival but they are sure to grow into something spectacular. Our bare roots are at least one year old and have been harvested from the field during dormancy. We store them in appropriate conditions until you are ready to receive them. You may plant bare roots on arrival where they will continue to grow to optimum effect.
Bulbs and corms arrive in various sizes dependent on variety. This does not bare any resemblance to their eventual size. Bulbs and corms will store well in suitable conditions for up to a fortnight or they can be planted out straight away.
