The foliage height will differ depending on variety.

Medium Plugs - Trays of 20

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

•    Ensure that your tender plug plants are grown on in 10cm pots in fresh compost and placed in a warm spot, ideally a windowsill or propagator.  
•    These herbs do not like the cold during their initial growth period, so fluctuations in temperatures are best avoided.
•    Once the roots have filled the pots, they will benefit from being potted on to a larger pot for a few more weeks or if you have a frost free spot in the garden they can be planted out.  
•    A neutral, well-drained soil is ideal that is not too high in nutrients.
•    Water in well initially and snip the herbs with a pair of scissors as you need them.
•    Mulch the base of the plants in late autumn to give them protection from the harshest cold weather and they may grow back next year.
