I didn't see the plant myself but my aunt was delighted with it
Birthday gift for my niece and this time I actually got to see it myself! Normally I get feedback from my family as I live abroad but I was there in person this time which was great. It was a lovely strong plant in a pretty container, exactly as advertised.
Beautiful plant and great service
Tree was a gift, but I saw photos of it when it arrived, and it looked like it was a great little tree - in fact, a little larger than expected. Would certainly buy from here again if I wanted another one.
Excellent plant with plenty of flowers yet to open. Many thanks
The quality of the plant was fantastic, very happy with my order.
Excellent quality of plant.
This was a gift which arrived safely on the date requested. The recipient was very happy and impressed with the quality of the plant. I would definitely use again and recommend to everyone.
Great plant arrived when you said it would and well packed.
These instructions are sent with the plant gift
The Plumbago, or “sky flower” is a conservatory plant. It will be happy in a conservatory, or a well-lit window or porch. In milder areas of the UK they will also be happy to spend the summer on a patio or balcony – but they are not hardy.
Make sure your plant gets plenty of light, by putting it near a window but a little way back from the glass to avoid scorching. Very bright direct sunlight is best avoided if possible.
Whilst the plants are in small pots they will need regular watering, especially if in a warm spot. However, the compost does not need to be wet, just slightly damp and it is okay for the soil to dry out on top in between watering. To help your plant grow you might want to add a drop of liquid feed to the water every few waters.
Your Plumbago plant is a climber by nature, cut off dead flowers to encourage more buds and train the plant upwards. As your plant puts on growth it can be re-potted in a larger pot with rich potting compost.
Don’t worry if your plant sheds petals, this is perfectly normal. Keep removing dead flowers and petals and your plant will reward you with more beautiful blooms.
