Choosing the right plant for your garden is the first step to success.

Where is the best place to plant annual flowers?

Choosing the right plant for the right position in your garden is the first step to success. Use the planting guide on the Easy Colour handle to select the best varieties for your setting.  All varieties will benefit from a sunny position in the cooler months.

How deep should I plant my annual flowers?

If you are planting into garden beds, cultivate the soil to a depth of 150 mm. Adding some compost may help improve soil structure and help retain water, but don’t apply excessive quantities.

Should I use potting mix with my annuals?

If you are planting into pots, tubs or hanging baskets, choose a premium potting mix. A good quality potting mix contains fertiliser and wetting agents that will support healthy growth for many months.

How do I use the “Pop Out” system?

Carefully remove plants from the Easy Colour pack using the pop-out system. Simply press upwards on the base of each cell to release each plant from the container. This unique system ensures that plants are not damaged or subject to transplant shock. Space apart as recommended in the planting guide, or a little closer in smaller containers or hanging baskets. Plant at the same depth as supplied.

How much water do annual flowers require?

Water in well after planting, even if soil is already damp. Then water as needed, just before plants begin to wilt. A small amount of mulch may be helpful in reducing water requirements, but keep this away from the base of each plant. As Easy Colour plants are advanced, hardy and already flowering they require less water than traditional seedlings

How should I prepare to plant my annual flowers and vegetables?

If you are planting into garden beds, cultivate the soil to a depth of 150 mm. Adding some compost may help improve soil structure and retain water, but don’t apply excessive quantities, particularly in winter.  Too much compost and fertiliser can result in excessive growth and less flowers.

How long will my annuals flower?

Flowering annuals should give many months of colour.  To promote continuous display, regularly remove spent flowers.
