Note, 4th May 2021
Our Rosa Banksia plants available for sale are currently still being grown in un-heated greenhouses and will require similar protection from frosts and cold wet weather in their first year (as currently being experienced around the UK). Please continue to protect & grow on any Banksia plants ordered in May in a cold greenhouse until June when there is no further risk of frosts and warmer weather returns before planting outside into the final position checking carefully also that the pot has fully rooted.
