Seasonal effects

The appearance of shrubs changes between seasons. From a bare plant lying dormant in winter to fresh greenery in spring, in full bloom during summer to leaves changing colour and dropping in autumn. This is a natural process courtesy of mother nature. Our plants will be delivered accordingly.

Planting+

Plant your Pieris (Andromeda) as soon as possible upon receipt into a sheltered, sunny border with free-draining soil. Acidic soil is preferred, to achieve this mix some sand and peat into the soil. This plant is fairly hardy and can handle quite a bit of cold but give it a little bit of protection in severe winters as just being sheltered won't always be quite enough for it.
Potted pieris
This plant will also thrive in a pot. Choose one with drainage holes to allow excess water to escape. Layer the base with potsherds or hydro-pellets. Add some potting compost mixed with sand and some peat. Plant at the required depth and fill up with more of the same compost mix. Press firmly in and water generously right away. Stand the pot in full sun.

Combining Pieris with other plants

Andromeda flowers abundantly and brings lots of colour to your garden or patio. Enjoy the white or pink flowers for months. Pieris goes great together with other early flowering plants such as the heather (Calluna vulgaris) or the tea plant (gaultheria) and Leucothoe 'Scarletta'.

Care+

Water your Andromeda (Pieris) regularly and don't allow this plant to dry out. If you want your Andromeda to flower extra abundantly, Bakker advices the regular addition of plant food to the watering can.
You shouldn't need to prune this plant. but we do advise, when the shape needs a bit of tidying up, to give it a little prune.

Extra+

An Andromeda can begin flowering from early spring with clusters of flowers emerging! Some varieties start to flower a little later. This Pieris is a lovely evergreen that retains its foliage. The pretty grey-green leaves are also very decorative. This is actually a fabulous miniature shrub that looks great and attracts attention all year round!
