Caring For your new plant
As soon as your parcel arrives unpack the plant and remove the plastic bag from the pot, place it in the shade and water it to settle it down after its journey. If the plant is to remain in the pot for a while before it is planted please take care to ensure it is kept moist – the sooner it can be planted out or potted into a larger container the better.
You only get the chance to plant once and this is the opportunity to give your new plant its best start at life!
It will take your new plant a while to grow its roots into the soil and become self sufficient, during this period of establishment it is important to keep it well watered. Dependent upon the time of year you may need to water a plant for several months to give the roots time to form their own water collecting network in the soil.
