Size guide - Pack of 5 Herb Plug Plants 

Our herb plugs are securely rooted, healthy plugs that would benefit from being grown on in 9/10cm pots for a few weeks before planting out in herb gardens, containers or hanging baskets. Tender varieties will need protecting from frost. Compost volume around 2.5 – 3cm deep x 3.2cm square. Foliage height 1.5cm – 5cm (depending on variety). Full growing instructions are provided.

  • Mints are well known to be invasive and will try and take over wherever they are grown.  They have underground runners that come up here, there and everywhere, so are often best in a tub or container in garden soil.   You can also plant mint into an old plastic pot and sink the pot into the ground. This will help to contain the roots.
