Reliable, cascading habit for hanging baskets and window boxes. Superb foliage impact.
Plectranthus will grow in sun or part shade and often used in borders to provide reliable ground cover to suppres weeds
Plectranthus are great for hanging baskets and patio containers either on their own or mixed with other basket plants. The beautiful foliage provides a reliable density to the container or basket and acts as a foil to display blooms of your chosen colour. The foliage will provide trail to over 2 feet or more.
How to grow on:
Plugs should be planted into a good quality peat or John Innes based compost. We do not reccomend growing in grow bags, peat free or homemade compost as too many nutient problems can occur.
Keep the compost fairly moist, but not waterlogged. If you notice a yellowing of the leaves during the early growing stages this is probably due to the plants drying out. Try to avoid keeping the foliage wet for prolonged periods to prevent Botrytis and Mildew diseases and do not allow plants to be wet overnight
We recommend poting into 9cm pots or packs on arrival and planting into baskets and tubs when the roots have filled the pots.
Plants should be grown in a well lit and well ventilated environment. Strict hygiene and ventilation should be observed to avoid disease problems. Light feeding should begin 3 weeks after planting. After 4 weeks plants should be budded up and ready for potting on into borders pots or baskets for you to enjoy. When the baskets or planters are established increase the feeding - we use tomorite, normal diluted strength on a weekly basis.
Plectranthus will grow happily in a greenhouse, polytunnel or conservatory and prefer to be grown cool to establish a compact habit but should be protected from frost.
