Pot plants


One of my favourite plants from seed are tender pot plants that can be grown from in the greenhouse and brought to flowering age ready for spectacular display indoors or in a conservatory. Many a time I have used these as gifts for friends at dinner parties and for many other occasions where something nurtured by one's own hand rather than purchased from a corner store had more meaning. With the right selection you can have beautiful flowering plants all year round.

(Pr Pkt) £2.42   JS935

(Click here for Larger Image)

Persian Violet is a small herbaceous biennial plant with small dark glossy green leaves. Older plants will only reach 2 foot tall even after many years so they make a great windowsill plant.

(Click here for Larger Image)

Quantity: 

Seed grown hybrid geraniums have come a long way over the last few years and are often indistinguishable from cutting grown hybrids, early to flower, good branching habit and zonal foliage. The horizon range is an excellent example of a superb colour range and most with zonal foliage all with a compact habit and ideal for pot plants or bedding. I remember the first geraniums I grew from seed many years ago when they first came on to the market and I would have given my right arm for this or the Maverick selection!

The Maverick series bred for volume commercial use is one of the best seed grown geraniums, easy to grow and very uniform to flower on strong zonal foliage. Large 15cm shatter resistant flower heads in a wide range of colours make them very suitable for bedding out or for Pot/Patio use.

Gerbera F1 Living Revolution Mixed
Transvaal Daisy  n£

6 seeds £4.99 JS3685

(Click here for Larger Image)

Quantity: 

Gerbera cut flowers or pot plants give fantastic colour and beauty to any room. For best results though the plants need a liberal amount of sun and water. Half day of direct sun and half day of partial shade and remaining slightly moist at all times is ideal. Healthy Gerberas are rarely bothered by pests but fungus and stem rot is a common problem with over watered plants. Remove old leaves regularly to prevent fungus infections. Living Revolution is a modern F1 hybrid with short compact leaves, large flowers and medium to long flower stems.

Gloxinia Avanti Mixed

15 seeds  £1.78  
JS936

(Click here for Larger Image)

Beautiful double form of Gloxinia in a range of blue, red, white and some bi-colours.

Gloxinia Empress Mixed
Gloxinia n£
15 seeds  £2.21   JS2028

(Click here for Larger Image)

Quantity: 

Gloxinias are one of the most beautiful houseplants you can grow. Each flower is velvety and bell shaped with blossoms of at least 3-inches in diameter! This one has one of the widest colour ranges that we have found with pink, red, purple, white, lavender, including both spotted and bicolour forms. Gloxinias enjoy bright light but not direct sun. Because the leaves are velvety they do not like getting wet. Gloxinias die back in the autumn and as the plant begins to fade, water less frequently and then stop watering all together. The tuberous stem needs about 2 to 4 months of dry soil combined with a dark place to re invigorate. When new leaves appear bring the plant back inside the house and resume watering. Place it in a sunny location to grow again. Another plant I grew in my youth to give away to girl friends or their mothers! They all nicknamed them “Peter’s Gladutias”!

Impatiens Balsamina

Unusual impatiens with columns of beautiful camellia type flowers in a wide range of colours on dwarf 12" to 15" plants that make very attractive pot plants. I have grown these on and off for many years and in my opinion should be more popular.

With its long, angular leaves of deep green scored with silver and its central bloom cluster of vivid pink and purple, it distinguishes itself beautifully as an oasis of rich colour and fascinating foliage. This plant grows readily from seed, blooming the first year. Showy enough to give as gifts even to non-gardening friends as it is an easy houseplant given warm humid bright light conditions, (but not direct sunlight).

Also a very ornamental pot plant where it produces lots of bright orange fruits. In autumn the leafless branches with ripe fruits can be used in dry bouquets as the fruits will not dry out, rot or fall off.
