Specific Plant Care:
Allow to die back naturally as in the autumn small buds are formed which fall off and sink to the bottom and the old plant rots away. These winter buds remain on the bottom to rise again in the spring to form new plants.
Just place the plant on the surface of the water. These plants are best brought inside as the nights start to get colder during very late summer to protect them from frost.
* Please note when pre-ordering plants:
When ordering multiple plants at the beginning of the season please take note of the 'Normally Available from' in the plant information above.
Your order will be dispatched once all the plants are ready for sale, so it is good idea to order plants within the same month range to avoid delays.
The 'Normally Available From' is a guide only and based on when this plant has been ready for sale in previous seasons. This is subject to change as our greenhouses are not artificially heated, so we rely on the British weather to be kind to us!
Please note you will be charged at the point of order for all items, whether they are on pre-order or ready to leave the nursery immediately.
