Our plants can reach heights of 4-5 feet if left unchecked, but can easily be maintained at a lower height through regular pruning.

To give your garden the best start, we recommend using a 40L bag of our specially-formulated, peat-free compost per square metre. This is not just any compost; it's designed by horticultural experts to improve drainage and provide all the essential nutrients your plants will need.

If you've already added compost to your soil, waiting a few days before planting allows the soil and compost to integrate fully, ensuring an optimal growing environment. This integration will make the soil more welcoming to new plant roots.

For beginners worried about plant sizes, our 1-litre (13cm) potted plants are the ideal starter size. They're well-rooted and sturdy, making them easier to handle and transplant into your garden.

For those unfamiliar with when to plant, any time between February and November is usually safe, just avoid planting during harsh frosts or extreme heatwaves. We recommend using a bag of our premium compost per square metre to prepare the ground for planting.

A single 40-50L bag of our premium compost also serves as an effective mulch. Mulch helps to retain moisture, suppress weeds, and improve soil quality over time—perfect for keeping your plants happy during the summer.

To determine what type of border suits your garden, assess how much direct sunlight the area gets. For less than 5 hours, consider a shady border; for more, a sunny border would be more appropriate.

If you're planning to be away, it's best to delay planting until you return so you can give the new plants the attention they need during their initial growing phase.

When planting perennials and shrubs, prepare the soil to a depth of at least 30cm.

To prepare a border alongside trees or hedges, enrich the soil with compost or manure and select shade-tolerant plants. Ensure regular watering to overcome competition for moisture but keep an eye on over-watering. Apply mulch to conserve water. This careful balance supports your plants in establishing well and thriving amidst nearby vegetation.

If not planting immediately, keep your Garden on a Roll plants watered, sheltered, and frost-protected.
