Buy bare-rooted wallflowers now to be rewarded with a beautiful display in spring

Bundles of joy

Look for bare-rooted bedding wallflowers (Erysimum cheiri) at garden centres or online nurseries. Sold in bundles, they are much cheaper than pot-grown plants and will come into flower more quickly too.

Plant them as soon as you get them, but if that’s not possible, tuck them in a compost-filled pot or shallow trench and keep watered.

For impact, plant wallflowers in blocks or drifts of 15-20 plants, about 20-25cm apart. They like well-drained, moist soil, in full sun.

Once planted, they will establish good roots, ready to flower in March next year.
