Our Feedback
Dear Victoriana Team, After a long wait my Samphire plants have finally arrived and I am so impressed I immediately wanted to order some more. Oh and by the way, thank you for packing all of your plants so well. Even though it is quite frustrating to sieve through all the shredded newspaper and then trying to dispose of it with bits blowing all over the place(especially with bigger plants), your system really works and seems to be the best way of protecting the plants. I have had some bad experience with other garden centres before and actually vowed never to buy plants online again, yet you have really managed to convince me that it can be quite safe. Thank you very much.

Cultivation Guidance

  • On Arrival
  • We often trim the tops to ensure basal branching and for the hedge to grow thick before dispatch.
  • This is a natural growing hedge, alternate the young plants for more interest. We simply label each variety batch but not each subject.
  • Remember growing in a shady position will reduce the growth of the plants.
  • A mulch of spent mushroom compost or well rotted manure planting is beneficial.
  • Do not use any stimulants or bone meal at planting time.
  • Aftercare
  • Once well established this hedge can be cut by conventional hedge trimmers, but only in winter before the birds start nesting.
