What to do on arrival
On arrival open the packages immediately. You may notice a little compost spillage due to movement in the post, and occasionally an odd yellow leaf may appear and fall off due to the plants being in a box for a short period, but this is nothing to worry about. If there is any significant damage please contact us immediately. Stand the plants upright and give a little water as required. After a couple of hours the plants will have recovered from the journey and will be ok to plant as directed below.
Always prepare your soil well prior to planting by adding a general fertiliser and rake well into the soil. If growing in containers, plant into a good quality potting compost and feed throughout the growing season to keep plants healthy and producing a tasty crop over a longer period.
July to October
38cm (15") apart with 90cm (3ft) between the rows. alternatively plant 3 plants per growbag or one plant per 25cm (10") pot on a sunny patio.
Plant outdoors once all risk of frost has passed. Water and feed plants regularly with high potash feed once the first truss has set. When growing outside pinch out the growing tip after 4-5 trusses of fruit have set. Gardeners Delight and Mountain Magic will require side shooting and support for best yields, Red Alert is a bush variety and requires no side shooting.
