Daphne general information -

We generally supply small, two year old, young plants, in 9cm pots (unless otherwise stated) that will grow away strongly through the year. The following plants should ideally be planted between March and September. The alpine Daphne must be given a well drained soil in good light with good ventillation but probably best not over exposed to cold winter winds. However we have some fine examples at the nursery that would even contradict that statement. The "woodland" Daphne are ultimately quite large shrubs and generally require space to grow, in a well drained though slightly moisture retentive neutral to acid soil, light shade or reduced light levels (say north facing).
