Put the huge versatility to work – they’re perfect for solo and mixed planters and baskets, gardens and landscapes. Best of all, Easy Wave delivers customer-pleasing performance all Summer.
A first class variety for bedding, hanging baskets and tubs. Bred with emphasis on seedling vigour and uniformity, the plants have a good free flowering habit and look superb en masse. The flowers are large with most of the colours in the range having attractive veining, which gives more substance to the flowers and enables them to recover more quickly after bad weather. Flowers summer to first frost. Height: 30cm (12in).
CARE TIPs: Deadhead to prolong the flowering period. These will work well in a container pot in a sunny position. Water well in the first two weeks, to prevent the plant from drying out. Apply liquid fertiliser fortnightly to improve performance.
FLOWERING July - October
HARVESTING Flower production 4 months
When plug plants arrive transplant into individual 7.5cm (3") pots of compost and grow on at a minimum temperature of 15C (59F).
When plants are well grown, transplant into baskets and containers. If the plant is suited for growing outdoors when all risk of frost has passed gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 - 10 days before positioning baskets outdoors in a sheltered position in full sun once all frost risk has passed.
Suitable for the vegetable garden, allotments and containers.
Be prepared to water well and supplement feed with high-potash feed during season. Regular feeding is recommended.
