Care Information

Planting Advice:

  • Give your garden ready plants a little attention on arrival - unpack them immediately, and either mist them or stand them in water for an hour - they may be slightly dry or yellow after being in a dark box in the post, but they’ll quickly recover. If you can’t do this, they can sit in Mini Greenhouses for a week if upright and not too wet.
  • We recommend that you leave them to settle for a day somewhere warm, light and airy such as a windowsill or greenhouse.
  • Sweet Williams prefer light, well drained soil and full fun.
  • When planting directly into flower beds, prepare the ground well, removing weeds and digging in some compost or well-rotted manure if your soil is not already rich.
  • Plant about 30 cm (1 ft) apart to allow them room to grow. Feed using a high-potash feed such as Blooming Fast Superior Soluble Fertiliser for Flowers & Fruits, to encourage flowering.

Pruning Advice:

  • Prune plants back hard in midsummer if they become scruffy or floppy. Don't deadhead plants completely, leave some on to self-seed.
  • Plants are easily divided in early autumn or spring. Remove fading flowers to encourage more buds to form.
