1. I would like to encourage more foliage to my plants, what is the best way to do this? To ensure that your plants are given the best possible start, feed them every 7-10 days with a High Nitrogen Feed. This will ensure the leaves and stems of young plants have the strongest start. Why not have a look at our Chempak range for our full range of fertilizers available.

2. How many plants can I plant in a 12" basket and how far apart do I need to plant them? The number of plants will vary depending on the variety that you have purchased. Please see our hanging basket planting guide for useful information on this topic.

3. My plants have arrived yellow and are a little dry, will they be ok? - Please do not be concerned, this is due to the warm weather that we are currently experiencing and the lack of light they have experienced whilst in transit. We suggest opening your plants right away and giving them a good drink before potting on. Once potted your plants should pick up within the next few days.

4. My bareroots are showing no sign of life, are they ok? Your bareroots may still be dormant and are taking a little longer than normal to wake up. Now all risk of frost has passed and the ground is starting to warm up, you should start to see life in the next few weeks. To ensure that your plants are healthy, you can carry out a simple bark test. Gently scrap away the bark at the base of the stem and if it appears to be green or if there is a slight residue then your plants are perfectly healthy.
