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.
Using a good quality multi-purpose compost, pot up your plugs into 10cm pots. 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 but remember.
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 40 plug plants gently remove the small plugs from the tray by pushing up from the bottom using a pencil.
Had this plant for the first time last year in hanging baskets. It grew abundantly to 7ft length and was magnificent. Have gone for twice as many this year so am hopeful of a repeat. Have bought from you for some years now and always been satisfied with the quality of plants and excellent service. Particularly now under virus conditions you have all managed to keep this quality and service going. Well done and stay safe yourselves.

The plants were well packed and very healthy.
Plants arrived safely and in good condition despite having spent 8 days with Royal Mail, strong plants now potted up and growing away.
Just received my Nepeta plants, they are really strong healthy plants, which will look great in my hanging baskets. Many thanks.
