Agnetha's survival guide

Young and sweet and only seventeen

Where will you find Agnetha on a Friday night? Funny you even have to ask—she will obviously be where they play the right music. You may approach her with a friendly “Hej,” or even a “Goddagens,” but never a “Tja.” Agnetha is our Swedish disco legend who you’ll want to take a chance on in your garden. She’s so iconic that when she suggests you need to revive the bell bottoms, you say “I do, I do, I do, I do, I do.”

What makes Agnetha so special

If you're not new to gardening, you will know all about the Hosta. If you are relatively new, let us enlighten you on this amazing perennial. Hosta's were first brought over from the Orient in the early 1700s and have been cultivated in gardens all over North America ever since. There are over 2500 different varieties of Hosta's in a multitude of colours and leaf sizes but the Hosta Dancing Queen stands out with it's lemon-lime foliage and lavender toned flowers. Plant your Hosta about a foot deep into the soil and give it enough space around the plant to widen and broaden as it matures. Keep the Hosta moist but not wet and be careful with over watering. Once fully grown they are more tolerant to long periods of rain or drought. Your Hosta plant should be considered an annual if it is planted in gardens where winter temperatures typically exceed -6 degrees celsius.

How do you measure height?

Good question! We measure the height from the top of the plant to the bottom of the pot (including the pot itself).

Got a gift card for my birthday in the gift box (Fred the air plant was much larger than expected!) and after much though and deliberation given how large their assortment is, chose three plants to order. All three arrived earlier than expected and in fairly good condition, in very well planned packaging that even included a heat pack. They were a bit smushed but they seemed healthy - no pests - and are doing well now. The only problem I had was with just how full the pots were which made them a bit difficult to transport and water especially since they were pretty large given their pot size; definitely have to repot them within the year. Oh and the ceramic pot I ordered as well came and looks very cute! It's a touch small for their nursery pots, they fit inside but with a bit of a lip over the top, but otherwise look great. Definitely would recommend and plan on buying more in the future :D Read less

I ordered 2 plants in late January 2022 which were posted to me in the Okanagan. They arrived within a couple days with a heat pack that was still emitting heat. They were well packed and look healthy. Thanks for the gift of green in the dark of winter! Read less

So stoked on our order! It came in quick, in great conditions and the plants are lovely. They also use cardboard and brown paper, which is great! There was no plastic in the packaging. They even added 2 succulents as a gift in our order. Kelsi, one of their staff member even reached out to me to make sure I didn't make a mistake because not all the pots I ordered fit the plants I ordered (it was for some plants that I already owned, but how sweet?!) First time we purchased for Plantsome and definitely not the last. Great experience!! Read less
