Planting Conditions

For successful cultivation of your Cottage Garden collection we recommend well-drained soil enriched with organic matter is provided for planting. These perennial thrives in areas with partial to full sun exposure, receiving at least 4-6 hours of sunlight daily. We suggest planting in garden borders, rock gardens, or perennial beds to enhance your gardens design. Ensuring adequate spacing of 12-18 inches between plants will allow for adequate air circulation. Whether placed in borders or mixed planting schemes, these conditions create an ideal environment for your Cottage Garden collection to flourish, providing your garden with its vibrant blooms.

Watering & Feeding

To maintain the health and vitality of your Cottage Garden collection, we suggest adhering to appropriate watering and feeding practices. Ensure regular watering, keeping the soil consistently moist without allowing it to become waterlogged. In warmer periods, increased watering may be beneficial to prevent dehydration. While our fully hardy perennials are generally adaptable, providing a balanced fertiliser in early Spring aids in robust growth and blooming. However, we suggest you avoid excessive feeding, as this can lead to leggy growth. Consistent care in watering and modest feeding enhances the overall performance of plants in this collection and will ensure a prolonged display of their cheerful blooms in your garden space.

General Care

General care for your Cottage Garden collection involves several key considerations for optimal performance. Regular deadheading; the removal of spent flowers will encourage continuous blooming and also maintains the plant's tidy appearance. Monitor for pests such as aphids or slugs, which can impact the plant's health. If detected, treat promptly to prevent infestations. Keep an eye out for signs of diseases like powdery mildew, addressing any issues promptly. Allowing adequate spacing of around 12-18 inches apart, promotes proper air circulation, reducing the risk of fungal diseases. While our fully-hardy perennials are generally resilient, vigilant care contributes to its overall health and longevity in your garden landscape. Incorporating these practices ensures that these perennials not only thrive but also graces your outdoor space with blooms to elevate your garden design.
