Our artificial outdoor plants will arrive in a variety of different containers. Tree generally come in a basic black pot which can be used as a base when repotting or planting into the ground. Our arrangements come in a ready to use premium plastic planter, while some of our bushes come on spikes which you will need to push into oasis or straight into the ground.

Each product will have individual potting instructions within their descriptions. Further tips and advice can be found in The Potting Shed.

Maintaining your outdoor artificial plants

Artificial outdoor plants require minimal ongoing maintenance, however we do have some handy tips which can help keep your artificial plant in tip-top condition for as long as possible.

Every now and then, use compressed air, a damp cloth or a paint brush to remove dust and debris from the plant. Even though they are outside this can still accumulate over a long period of time which can make the plant look tired.

Secondly, if the plant is in a sunny area rotate it regularly. This will ensure any gradual determination isn’t noticeable immediately.
