starter plants with approximately 1” in diameter by 1 ¼+” deep roots in plastic
cups. The cups are to be clipped individually and planted in the cup so as not to
disturb the roots. The cups have several
holes in them to accommodate the roots plus growing out of the top. Years ago, we noticed that in removing the
cups folks were damaging the roots, which resulted in death of the
plant at least 50% of the time. We grow
Plugs (3-5” tall), Lg Plugs (slightly larger and usually branched), Full Gal (multi-branched
12-18”+): THESE ARE ALL THAT WE SHIP.
AFTER THE FIRST YEAR OR TWO, BOUGAINVILLEA GROWS IN SUCH A WAY THAT
IT IS BRITTLE AND BREAKS. NOT
GOOD FOR SHIPPING! We also grow Bougainvillea in 3 gal, 5 gal,
and sometimes larger, but they must be picked up at the nursery-WE WILL NOT
SHIP THESE SIZES. You can use slow release
fertilizer a couple of times a season. This plant is very easy to grow, it will
tolerate all types of soil and watering. To promote new growth add fertilizer
and water, to bloom, slack off of both.
