Plant Now: Polyanthus

Polyanthus in container

Who can possibly walk past a container filled with pretty polyanthus? They may be short in stature, but these pretty flowers make up for that with their vibrant winter and spring blooms. They don’t need much caring for, either. Just dig some blood and bone into the soil before planting, and deadhead regularly to keep the flowers coming. Sow your own seed and you’ll have plenty of spare plants to pot up as gifts. Polyanthus are ideal for small posies – or bring the whole pot indoors as a table centrepiece.
