Superbells - and why they are SUPER!
Superbells are a series of Calibrachoa that are bred for their beautiful flowers, great habit, and their ability to perform well and bloom all summer long.
Superbells do best in full sun situations. This means the more sun they get, the better they flower. You can try them in partial shade, but they won't flower as prolifically as when they are placed in a sunny spot that gets 6 or more hours of sunlight per day.
Superbells perform at their best in well-draining soil. They do well in containers, baskets or a raised bed with good drainage.
Superbells tend not to like having wet feet. This means they do not like sitting in wet soil, which is why having good drainage is so important. If they sit with wet feet for too long there is a risk of root rot. To reduce this risk, make sure your containers have drainage holes. We do select our Superbells® so that they are more tolerant to having wet feet than other Calibrachoas, but they still do best with good drainage and correct watering.
Fertilising is really important so that your Superbells remain looking their best and flowering prolifically. If you used a slow release fertiliser upon planting check when it runs out so you know when to start fertilising yourself (normally about 2 months). If you didn't use one, watering once per week to once per fortnight with a liquid feed will help your Superbells grow and look their best - It's best to follow the frequency directions on the bottle.
