How to care for Nemesia NESIA™ Denim
Once you’ve received your stunning Nemesia NESIA™ Denim, pot it up and grow it in warm, frost-free conditions. While it’s establishing, pinch out the tip of each stem to encourage bushiness.
Once the last frost has definitely passed, slowly acclimatise the plant to outdoor conditions before transplanting it into its final position in a patio pot or a garden bed. Use any moist, non-alkaline, well-draining soil and place your plant in full sun.
