Quality and size of plants

Vallonchêne's® first goal is to produce good looking and healty plants (read about our quality commitment). One of the conditions is the relation between the height of the plant, its pot size and its natural growth speed. This is not always respected in nurseries because this means repotting the plants regularly which needs personal, time and other resources. The pot size is then too small compared to the plant's size. Low quality is the result (roots start to turn in the pot, make them grow in your garden becomes difficult...). This depends, of course, on the natural growth, some grow at a normal speed, slower (dwarf forms) or faster (giant forms). Therefore, we indicate the size of our plants in liters. We assure highest respect of this quality criteria.

Below you can find our size tables, allowing you, to dertermine what plant size to expect on our website. If you need more explanations, don't hesitate to get in touch with us. We are always happy to help you.

Herbaceous plants

Herbaceous plants are a particular case as their growth habit is totally different depending on varieties. The age of the plant is therefore a better reference to express their strength.
