A fantastic, versatile plant variety that will happily develop into a lush glossy carpet of evergreen mahogany-red leaves in a winter hanging basket, container or the ground. If planted in the ground it enjoys shady areas and keeps weeds at bay.

Your Ajuga Mahogany Red will quickly establish to form a lovely carpet of rich leaves which fills any bare patches in your garden, improving the look and feel of your garden.

Plant under trees where it's dry and your plants will come up trumps and even produce lovely blue flowers in spring to early summer.

We give you 10 young plants which is enough to plant in 5-10 pots or in flower beds. In flower beds space your plants 20cm apart in an area of 6 ½ ft by 1ft (2m by 30cm).

Grow in pots with compost suitable for bedding to ensure the plants have the best soil to grow and thrive in. If you grow them in flower beds mix some compost in with the existing soil to give your flowers the best soil to grow in.

How your plants arrive

Each of your flowers arrives to you as young plants containing a ‘plug’ of soil with roots running through them and some small green stems and leaves.

Although they are little they are the perfect size to get growing fast once you plant them up.

Your flower plants will arrive to you in a plastic wallet contained in a bubble-lined envelope or a box for larger orders. The wallet allows your young plants to stay healthy by giving them an ideal air and root environment when it arrives to you. Check all your 10 plants are there in the plastic wallet, according to your order.

Can’t plant straight away?

If you cannot plant up your flower plants straight away into their permanent position make sure the plugs of your plants are kept moist at all times.

You can place your plants on a saucer or tray of water so the plugs are immersed at the beginning of the day. Keep an eye on them and take them out of the water once the soil is moist from absorbing the water beneath.

Keep your flowers in a well-ventilated and light position in their plastic wallet after giving them water. Look to planting in their permanent position within 5-7 days.
