Gardenia jasminoides

Schefflera a. Gold Capella

Native to Bhutan, Pakistan and India this is the national flower of the Philippines, one of the three national flowers of Indonesia and the Jasmin that is used to flavour Jasmin Tea. We are pleased to offer this superb, tender, evergreen plant. Rare in production in the Uk. this lovely tropical Jasmin has large waxy deep green leaves and large clusters of waxy, white, intensely fragrant flowers, produced all summer and in warmer evnvironments, just about all year. This plant makes our propagating house a sensory pleasure each summer, with the fragrance of its flowers! Easy to grow, provided it is kept in a warm location, in a fertile, moist, well drained compost. A sheltered sunny patio is fine for the summer but when there is a chill in the air it must be taken into a frost protected greenhouse or conservatory. Our orginial mother plant came from a cutting I collected in the wild in the Philippines. It and its offspring, keep easily over winter in a minimum of 3-5C. they even produce the, occasional flower. With a larger frame than our normal garden Jasmins, it will probably require pruning to limit growth. This is best done in late April and will often encourage flowering. When growing in a pot or other container. Use a good quality John Innes compost with 20% horticutural grit mixed in to aid drainage. This plant likes plenty of water in the growing season but does not like to be waterlogged.

Schefflera arboricola are native to Taiwan and the province of Hainan in China. One of the most popular of all house plants, due to its elegant, attractive foliage and tolerance of poor growing conditions. There have been many cultivrs developed. Gold Capella is one of the most popular of these and a winner of the RHS Award of Garden Merit. Prized for its glossy, pinnate or palm like leaves, oval in shape with irregular splashes of golden yellow contrasting beautifully against glossy, mid green. This beautiful ornamental plant is very adaptable in terms of light and soil and can be grown with minimal care. It is often sold as an air purifying plant. In a good location it can grow quite quickly but is very tolerant of regular trimming. Very easy to look after. Keep in a warm location, preferably not below 16C (60F), away from cold drafts, with good light but avoiding strong direct sunlight. Water regularly through the growing season letting the surface of the soil dry out slightly before rewatering. Reduce watering to just enough for there to be a little moisture in the compost through the winter months and do not forget to feed by the addition of a controlled release fertilser once a year, or regular monthly liquid feeds from spring to autumn. So often the poor half dead looking house plant just needs a regular feed! Remove any dead leaves and re-pot as the plant grows bigger.
