Further Information

Please be aware that the water supply on our nursery is alkaline and frequently our blue flowering varieties will have pinkish or purple flowers when they arrive with you, despite having been grown in an acidic compost. This colour will continue for several months after planting before changing to reflect the new soil conditions in your garden.
