Native to Asia, in particular China, Japan and Korea, the Platycodon Grandiflorus is commonly called Balloon Flower after its best assets - its beautiful, blue blooms. Their unopened flower buds swell up prior to opening, resembling little hot-air balloons, hence the common name.

This plant produces great cut flowers, so you can enjoy them arranged in a vase in your home, too.

The Platycodon Grandiflorus is easy to grow and will inject colour to all garden spaces from beds and borders, to pots and patios. Keep their soil moist and cut back to the ground in autumn time. This plant has a tendency to self-sow, so bear this in mind if you don't want it to mass produce.

Jo's Top Tip

The Platycodon Grandiflorus can be prone to leggy growth, but you can easily prevent this by cutting stems in late spring to encourage compact and bushy growth.

    In short, if anything isn't right with your order we'll sort it. 

    Your plants have not only been packaged by humans (we’d like to find a robot that could beat our packaging skills) but by our in-house team of plant lovers who have lovingly prepared your order.

    If you’re not happy with your plants, let us know within 30 days, by contacting us via live chat, email or phone and a friendly member of our team will do their absolute best to rectify anything that's gone wrong.

    It's not just the plants that we care about though, we're pretty proud of our market leading (sustainable) packaging too. We’ve created a family of transport boxes with handles and where possible use our 'anti-roll' device which prevents the plant from travelling around should the box be inadvertently tipped upside down during transit.

    Things occasionally go wrong, but we'd like to assure you we're on hand help!
