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)

Delphiniums, Digitalis and Lupins are quintessential cottage garden plants reaching up to heady heights of around 50-60cms (depending on the variety) and are more columnar than widely spreading, so they work really well planted towards the back of the border to set off other mid-size plants. They also make eye-catching cut flowers for arrangements and displays.

Special requirements - Slugs love to munch on emerging young shoots of Delphiniums and Lupins. If you can deter them without the use of slug pellets, all the better, but if you have to, sprinkle pellets around the base of the plants. You will need to reapply after rainfall.

As most of our varieties are tall, they will probably need staking and tying in as they grow during the season so that any windy weather doesn’t blow them over.
