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.

  1. Great flowers

    By ANDREA MILLS 10-09-2013

    Lovely colours and so many people commented on how lovely they looked. Will definitely have them again next year

  2. So Many Flowers With A Wonderful Colour Range

    By glynis hart 14-08-2012

    This is my first year of growing these beautiful plants and I'm really pleased that I took a friend's advice to try them. Although this flower is new to me I'll definitely be using them again. Each plant is covered in large, striking blooms with colours of such interesting combinations. Despite being so easy to grow they have proved to be a real talking point amongst visitors to my garden.
