Lift and divide congested colonies in spring.

This stunning new collection of designer wellies are all hand-made from 100 percent rubber and have an orthopaedic sole for comfort.We recommend you order a size larger than you would do normally. We have found that they are a little on the snug side. Fine if you have delicate ankles, no instep and never wear socks, but if not – you need the next size up.

In late spring tiny purple-red flowers are borne in small pendulous clusters and are followed in late summer by charming winged fruits, which float down from the branches when they are ripe.Garden care: Add a top dressing of a multi-purpose fertiliser around the base of the plant in late spring. No routine pruning is required, just remove any dead, damaged or crossing branches in late autumn or winter when they are fully dormant.
