1. The customer is responsible for
Choosing a site that suits the requirements of the plant as set out in the cultivation notes of the Royal Horticultural Society's Encyclopaedia of Garden Plants
planting the plant using the correct compost, plant food and planting the plant to the correct depth. Most Holme staff are avid gardeners and well trained. Therefore advice for the customer is always available should clarification be needed.
for applying the correct amount of water to establish the plant. Prior to planting the plant should be soaked in a bucket of water for 20 minutes. An initial thorough soaking of the soil after planting will ensure that damp soil particles lie right up against the root ball of the new plant. Subsequent watering will vary according to the time of year and the weather conditions. In the first spring and summer after planting the plant should be checked regularly for signs of stress from lack of water (e.g. wilting, curling of the leaves) and if necessary water should be applied. It is better to give one good soaking fortnightly allowing the soil to become thoroughly wet, which will encourage deeper rooting than to water little and often as this encourages shallow rooting
maintaining a 60cm diameter circle around the plant free from competing plants during the establishment period.
Undertaking any extra care as set out in the Royal Horticultural Society's Encyclopaedia of Garden Plants.
Failure on behalf of the customer to carry out the above will invalidate the guarantee.
2. Holme Nurseries Ltd will honour the guarantee unless the winter minimum temperature falls below that which the plant is deemed hardy using the Royal Horticultural Society's Encyclopaedia of Garden Plants as reference.
3. The plant guarantee does not apply to annuals or short lived perennials.
4. Before claiming under the terms of the guarantee please speak to a member of staff in person or by phoning 01929 554716 during office hours.
