Pot up Polyanthus plants and grow them on for transplanting at a later date. Grow plug plants in bright, frost-free conditions, watering sparingly until they are fully rooted in. When all risk of frost has passed, acclimatise polyanthus plants to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days, prior to planting out in their final positions.
Polyanthus make colourful bedding plants, or grow them in containers and borders or in any fertile, moist, well drained soil. Choose a position in full sun or semi shade. During the winter, avoid over watering which may cause the plant to rot in cold conditions. Deadhead faded polyanthus flower stems throughout the flowering period to encourage more blooms to be produced.

  2. Fabulous blaze of colour

    By Vanessa Henry 25-04-2015

    Arrived as good quality plug plants which established well over the autumn. Planted in borders and also in a winter hanging basket towards the end of last year and was pleased with how well they survived the wintery conditions. I now have beautiful displays of colour in my yellowy red border and they also look great peaking up at the top of hanging baskets against a selection of purple winter pansies. Am really happy with these plants.
