Boltonia - White

Plants

Sale price$9.00
BOLTONIA ASTEROIDES

Boltonia are a perennial producing large frothy airy clouds of mini daisy type flowers in late summer/ autumn.

They are significantly larger and more productive in their second year, dying back almost fully over winter. Some sort of support would help keep their large branches upright. You can also pinch stems when about knee height to encourage smaller more manageable stems for harvesting.

These plants are mostly from seedlings, possibly some from division, so most likely they'll be white, but there is a chance they could also be soft pink as we have both colours at the farm.

A Note on Hardening Off

All our plants are grown as we would grow & plant ourselves, which means we typically do not harden off (acclimatise) any of our smaller plants before planting.

Instead, after planting, we always cover all our plants with some sort of frost/mikroclima type cloth over wire low hoops. We leave this cover on till the plants are too big for the cover (usually a couple months later). We have found this extra layer of prolonged cover does away with any need to faff around hardening off plants, and the difference between any plants under these low hoops and those with zero transitionary cover is astonishing!

Prior to planting we also always give our plants a very good soak in water with a swig of seaweed solution and innoculate our plants with beneficial microorganisms. This helps alleviate stress, and start all our plants off with the best possible beginnings.

If however you don't / can't plant under some similar sort of cover, then we do definitely recommend you give your plants 5–14 days to slowly acclimatise to your less protected environment before planting out. We are reasonably mild compared to more southern growers, so easing the plants into colder climates is definitely advised.

Cloth: Polynet / Redpath
Hoops: 4mm Fencing Wire (which we cut up to fit our beds, with bolt cutters as fencing pliers are waaay too hard on our hands!)
