  • The fast-track to a hassle-free garden - just plant, water and enjoy!
  • Quality plants delivered to your door, hardened off and ready to plant out

Our garden ready plants are selected for garden performance, straight from the nursery. We send them to you 'green' ahead of flowering (but please note some varieties may show a few blooms), which means plants will establish quickly and all their energy goes into producing better roots, so they produce more flowers throughout the season.

Like sumptuous gold braid, the exquisite veining overlays rich, velvety hues, creating a shimmering display. Salpiglossis 'Royale Mixed' produces stunning trumpet flowers on upright, bushy plants. Salpiglossis flowers can be cut for a majestic indoor display, and the opulent colours add an exotic feel to patio containers, and annual bedding schemes. Height: 60cm (24"). Spread: 30cm (12").

Pot up salpiglossis plants and grow them on in warm frost-free conditions for transplanting later on. Pinch out the growing tip of each stem to encourage branching and form a bushier plant which will produce more flowers later on. When all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days, before transplanting them outdoors into beds, borders and containers. Salpiglossis plants prefer a moist, fertile, well drained soil, and will appreciate the addition of plenty of organic matter prior to planting. Choose a position in full sun, and sheltered from strong winds.
Feed and water salpiglossis plants regularly, particularly during hot, dry periods. If necessary, stake the stems with garden canes or twiggy brushwood. Regular deadheading of salpiglossis flowers will encourage further blooms to be produced throughout the summer.
