Bright flower spikes of sugary baby pinks will bring a mass of frothy colour in a very short time giving quite remarkable bushy specimens that will be in flower all summer from June to September and quite often well into October.
Planted in full sun or partial shade Salvia gregii ‘Icing Sugar’ looks spectacular in large, decorative pots or as part of an herbaceous summer border. A ‘must have’ plant for a cottage garden scheme. Salvias for the most part are low maintenance plants. They can be used as low hedging as an attractive soft divider between beds or as edging alongside pathways. The pleasant sage-like aromatic scent on the foliage is released when the leaves are brushed against.
Ideal plant for coastal areas. Attractive to bees, butterflies and moths.

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)

Many salvias are hardy if they are planted in a sheltered sunny position, but will need good winter drainage. It may be worth taking a few cuttings in late summer and growing them on in a frost-free spot during the winter months ready to plant out the following spring.
Pruning is best left until late spring once the risk of a hard frost has passed in your area and you can see that the new growth has started.
