Caring for Gentiana 'True Blue' - Gentian
Gentians are grown best in cooler climates with mild summers, where summers are warmer it should be protected from afternoon sun. Plant it in well-drained soil that maintains average moisture, mulch will help to maintain the moisture. If the soil stays wet the plant may rot.
The plants (the friend also ordered) were beautifully packed in sleeves. The The plants themselves looked very healthy and their roots displayed the same
high quality. The obvious extra care taken by the nursery made it a joy to
plant these cultivars and watch over them carefully as we move into low temperatures.
Fantastic job with the shipping and then the quality of the plants was and is great! They sure know what they are doing. I look forward to make purchases from them and using their services. I would recommend.
The plant arrived well rooted and in great shape, lots of greenery and enough buds and blooms. This nursery knows how to deliver with the good selection and great quality of products.
