Pot up Daphne plants and grow them on in frost free conditions. When plants are well grown and all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for a period of 7 to 10 days prior to planting in their final positions. Transplant Daphne plants into borders and containers outdoors in moist, fertile, well drained soil that is rich in organic matter. Choose a position in sun or semi shade. When growing in containers use a soil based compost such as John Innes No. 3. Daphne resents root disturbance so try to avoid this when transplanting as this may delay plant establishment.
Feed and water regularly throughout the growing season while young plants become established. Once established, Daphne plants require only occasional attention. Pruning Daphne is best kept to a minimum, removing only occasional damaged stems and lightly trimming those that spoil the shape of the plant in summer after flowering. Caution: All parts of Daphne are toxic if eaten and contact with the sap may irritate the skin and eyes.

  1. misleading picture information

    By john hall 22-10-2016

    my daphne arrived today and bears no resemblence to the plant shown in the pictures under the heading HOW YOUR PLANTS ARRIVE the plant i recieved was not much more than a twig measuring no more than 2.5 inches from top of pot to tip of highest leaf.The picture evidence you are showing to support the sale of this item is completely misleading and i would suggest breaks a number of advertising criteria. I phoned customer care and spoke to a very helpful member of your team who said he would send a replacement but then added it would be the same as the one i had recieved so i declined his offer he did then say he would send me a sample of incredibloom as a gesture of goodwill i did have a second daphne on order but this i cancelled I have bought from you before and have previously had little cause for complaint all items that have been supplied has been of the highest quality and the customer care second to none.


    Thank you for your review. I am sorry to learn of your disappointment with your purchase. At this time of year many plant will now be entering dormancy, so our plants may show very little green foliage and may be smaller than expected. This is normal, however I do understand your disappointment. I will be sure to pass this to the relevant department for review. If you have any further queries, please do get in touch again.
