Erysimum – Wallflower Persian Carpet

Wallflower Persian Carpet

Last week I received the bare root Wallflowers that I ordered from Woolmans. The instructions said plant out into the garden as soon as possible. There were eleven sturdy plants and as the weather was mild I set to and popped them in here and there. There was no indication of colour of the individual plants so if they survive the winter the eventual colour will be a surprise. Advice is to pinch out the growing tip after planting which I haven’t done as yet.

Supplied as bare roots, these are large, mature plants ‘in the green’ which will quickly establish once planted. Our wallflowers are field-grown in the UK and are lifted, hand graded, packed and despatched all within a 48 hour period to ensure the quality of our plants. Grow in any well-drained soil in full sun. Fully hardy, biennial. Woolman.
