Product Description

A superb collection of Osteospermum for pot and basket growing, ‘Erato’ Basket’ is a semi-trailing variety that will happily spill over the edges of containers, showing off its vibrant flowers from spring until autumn.

Also known as African Daisies, these sun lovers are incredibly vigorous growers and will produce a profusion of stunning flowers that almost completely cover the lush, dark green foliage, filling hanging baskets and tubs to overflowing in no time. A real summer sensation that certainly won’t go unnoticed in your garden!

So easy to care for, ‘Erato’ is extremely tough and able to tolerate heat and drought as well as light frosts, and needs very little aftercare so you can rely of them to put on an extravagant show, whatever the conditions. They’re also a magnet for bees and butterflies which are drawn to the bright, wonderfully formed daisy-like flowers.

  • 2 x Lemon – pale yellow petals with lemony flush at the outer edges.
  • 2 x Pure White

Plant Information

Top Tips

  • Deadhead regulary to encourage more flowers

Care Guide

  • Unpack plugs immediately and stand them in water for an hour.
  • If you can’t do this, they can sit in their mini greenhouse for a week if upright and not too wet.
  • Plugs may be slightly dry or yellow after being in a dark box in the post, but they’ll quickly recover.
  • Put them somewhere warm, light and airy such as a windowsill or greenhouse.
  • When potting on, handle plugs carefully. Pot on using our 9cm pots in Shuttle Trays, using good multi-purpose compost.
  • Give your plants a good water initially, then only when the top compost starts to dry. They don’t like to be left in standing water.
  • Plant approx. 20cm (8in) apart to allow them room to grow.
  • Feed using a high-potash feed such as Blooming Fast Superior Soluble Fertiliser for Flowers & Fruits, to encourage flowering.
  • Dead head when flowers fade to encourage more flowers.
  • Remember that plants are frost tender and should be protected from frost at all times.
  • Best treated as an annual or alternatively grow in pots which you can move indoors in autumn.
