Soto House - Shade - Wide
Light, airy and with interest at varying heights, the Soto House collection has universal appeal.
The wide borders are suitable for borders approximately 1 – 1.5m deep (from front to back).
Make sure you take your plants out of their packaging as soon as you can and give them a good drink. Check out our Watering Guide in the Soto Journal for tips and tricks.
