Planting your new plant

Water the plant thoroughly when you get it home, and plant out as soon as possible.
Make the hole for the plant larger that the pot it is in and the same depth.
When removing the plant from the pot, squeeze the sides of the pot to loosen it.
Loosen the roots of the plant, put the plant in the hole spreading the roots to encourage them to grow outwards.
Fill round the edges of the rootball with soil to the same level as the surrounding soil.

Care for your plant

Plants in containers need plant food to thrive when in growth.
Seek advice from your retailer regarding best product(s).
Follow the packet instructions when applying plant food.
Remove fading flowers to encourage fresh ones.
