Standard plants Planting Guide & Tips

Plant Uses

Standard plants, otherwise known as 'balls on sticks', are plants which are trained into a certain shape. Standard plants create a great feature in any garden, if you are willing to spend some time on them. Standard plants are best trained from young plants when they are more flexible and growing at a rapid pace. Standard plants are also best grown from plants with a straight stem. We have a range of gardening information on standards plants including the Autumn Olive, Dragon Fruit, Camellia and more standard plants.
