Our Plug Plants

Our plug plants are supplied in four sizes; small, medium, large and jumbo plugs....
The foliage height will differ depending on variety.

Small Plugs - Trays of 40
The most economical way to purchase your plants. Securely rooted, strong plants in mini-plugs of compost. Will need to be transplanted and grown on a windowsill, or in a greenhouse or conservatory, before planting out ready to flower. Compost volume around 2.3cm deep x 1.3cm square. Foliage height 1.5cm-5cm depending on variety)

Medium Plugs - Trays of 20
Our brassicas and lettuce are sold as medium plugs. Securely rooted, strong plants in mini-plugs of compost. Will need to be transplanted and grown for a short while on a windowsill, or in a greenhouse or conservatory, before planting out ready to flower. Compost volume around 3cm deep x 2cm square. Foliage height 1.5cm-5cm depending on variety)

Large Plugs - Packs of 5
Pot Ready, Large, Healthy plants, individually rooted in large plugs of compost. Ideal for planting into baskets, containers or small areas in the garden. Best results achieved if grown on for a short while in 9cm pots prior to planting out if planting straight into garden borders. Tender varieties will need protecting from frost. Compost volume around 4cm deep x 3.5cm square. Foliage height 5cm-12cm depending on variety)

Jumbo  Plugs - Packs of 3
Our premium perennials are supplied as Jumbo plugs. These plans would benefit from potting into large pots (5” upwards”) for a few weeks before planting out in the garden.  Compost volume around 5cm deep x 5cm square. Foliage height 5cm-20cm depending on variety)

Beetroot is easy and quick to grow, especially from plug plants, and the roots can be harvested when young or left for a few more weeks to mature.

  • Pot on your plugs into fresh compost in 10cms pots and grow on in a cool greenhouse or cold frame and plant out when the soil warms in late spring.  The sooner they are in the ground the better really as the roots need space to grow.
  • You can plant directly into the ground, if the soil temperature has warmed up, covering with a cloche for the first couple of weeks. 
  • Plant out into a fertile prepared bed free from pebbles if possible, at the rate of about 5/6 plants per metre if you want good size roots, or closer if space is an issue, or if you prefer smaller sized roots.
  • Weed regularly by hand so that your crops are not having to compete for nutrients and moisture.

Special requirements – Ensure beetroot plants get enough water especially if there is a long spell of dry weather; the roots need moisture to swell them and they will go woody through lack of water.
