Securely rooted, strong plants in mini-plugs of compost. Will need to be transplanted and grown for a short while before planting out ready to flower. Tender varieties will need protecting from frost. Compost volume around 3cm deep x 2cm square. Foliage height 1.5cm-5cm (depending on variety). Full growing instructions are provided.
Using a good quality multi-purpose compost, pot up your plugs into 9 cell trays. Once your plug plants have been potted on and labelled, water them in well and grow on for around 5-6 weeks. Water once the compost starts to dry out.
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.
Water as necessary giving a liquid feed such as Neudorff Organic Plant Feed as instructed throughout the growing season.
***For packs of 20/40 plug plants gently remove the small plugs from the tray by pushing up from the bottom using a pencil.
Not as good as last years.
Thank you for your review, we are sorry to hear you were expecting larger plugs and have now emailed you to see if we can assist further.
Very impressed with the quality and a big thank you for all your hard work, especially in these difficult times
overall not terribly impressed with the state of the lobelia plants and have lost two of the small plugs even though I planted them up in separate pots and have been nurturing them in our greenhouse.To be fair the fuchsias, verbenas and calibrachoa plants were in very good condition and are doing well, but the lobelia plants were less impressive.
Vg healthy plugs
All the plug plants i ordered came in fine condition and are looking really good.
Once again healthy plug plants will grow into healthy plants
All is great
nothing to 'crow' about, not such nice plants as the uprights
All doing fine.
Unlike the gazania tray this one was filled to overflowing. Such was the overcrowding that I had great difficulty in separating the plants without root damage. However this is not really a complaint, and my neighbours are also quite grateful!
