Polyanthus plants produce charming colourful flowers, often resembling miniature roses. These compact and versatile plants are a popular choice among gardeners due to their ability to thrive in various conditions.

Growing Polyanthus Plants

The ideal time to plant polyanthus plants is in early autumn or spring. Planting in autumn allows the plants to establish their root systems before winter, while spring planting allows for early blooming. Keep in mind that polyanthus plants prefer cooler temperatures, so it's best to avoid planting them during hot summer months.

Polyanthus plants thrive in well-drained soil and partial shade to full sun. Choose a location in your garden that receives at least 4-6 hours of sunlight per day. Ensure the soil is fertile and has good drainage. If your soil is heavy or clay-like, you can improve drainage by incorporating our quality compost or well-rotted manure.

Planting Polyanthus Plants

Prepare the soil by removing any weeds or debris and loosen it with a garden fork.

Dig holes that are slightly larger than the plant's root ball, spacing them around 6-8 inches apart.

Gently remove the polyanthus plant from its container, taking care not to disturb the roots excessively.

Place the plant in the hole or plant pot, ensuring the top of the root ball is level with or slightly above the soil surface.

Backfill the hole with soil, firming it gently around the plant to eliminate air pockets.

Water thoroughly after planting to settle the soil and encourage root establishment.

Polyanthus plants require regular watering, especially during dry periods. It's important to keep the soil evenly moist but not waterlogged. Apply a layer of strultch around the plants to help retain moisture and suppress weeds.
