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/10cm pots prior to planting out if planting straight into garden borders. Tender varieties will need protecting from frost. Compost volume around 4-5cm deep x 3-4cm square. Foliage height 5cm-12cm (depending on variety). Full growing instructions are provided.
Calibrachoa Specific Advice
Calibrachoas do not need deadheading as the plants are considered to be self-cleaning, meaning that the faded flowers readily drop following bloom. To stop Calibrachoa from becoming leggy, you can pinch it back regularly to encourage a more compact growth habit.
General Growing Advice
Using a good quality multi-purpose compost, pot up your plugs into 10cm pots or use the 6 or 9 Pack Cell Plant Trays. Once your Calibrachoa plug plants have been potted on and labelled, water them in well and grow on for 5-6 weeks.
If preferred you can pot on the plugs into hanging baskets, flower bags or pots. Add a slow release plant food like Miracle-Gro Slow Release All Purpose Plant Food to your compost which will give extra nutrients for strong and healthy plant growth.
Keep plants frost free until mid/late May and then harden off before being placed in their final positions when the risk of frost has passed in your area.
Having only recently received these plug plants, they are transplanted into the baskets and are thriving. Not yet flowering, but too early for that yet.

These plants were delivered on the day stated and were in tip top condition. I will definitely use this company again and can highly recommend them.
