Tradescantia/ Callisia

We have to cut our Tradescantias (and related Callisias) back on a regular basis in the summer to keep them compact otherwise they are prone to damage during transit. You may receive plants which have recently been cut back this will not harm them at all and they will quickly grow away again

Pot Sizes

Unless otherwise indicated our plants are supplied in the following pot sizes according to category. Dimensions refer to either the pot diameter (cm) or volume (litre);

  • Exotics/Conservatory & House Plants, Succulents: mostly as young plants in 9cm (approx. 0.5 litre)  or 1 litre pots
  • Hardy Perennials, Ferns and Grasses: 1 litre (approx. 12cm diameter)

The exact size of plants will vary with the growing season and may be cut back in accordance with normal pruning regimes or to fit in the box if they are excessively tall.
