We look forward to welcoming you to Nicholsons Plants very soon. Look out for Part 2 of this blog on 1st July, where further recommendations will be featured.
Please be advised that container grown specimens can be planted all year round, a little more attention at planting time and vigilant aftercare will be required to ensure the plants remain healthy and thrive. Store your plants in the shade until you are ready to plant, choose a dull, overcast day, soak the root balls and the planting holes thoroughly, then water again to settle the soil and apply a thick mulch of fine bark for water retention. Planting in the early evening is advisable so that cooler temperatures throughout the night can help prevent wilting.
You will need to carry out regular watering checks while your plants establish (please refer to the ‘Squeeze Test’ in our Planting and Watering Guidelines link). Click here to view the NICHOLSONS Planting and Watering Guidelines.pdf
