Size guide - Pack of 5 Large Plug Plants 

Pot Ready, Large, Healthy plants individually rooted in large plugs of compost. Ideal for planting into baskets, containers or small areas in the garden.

Compost volume around 4-5cm deep x 3-4cm square. Foliage height 5cm-12cm (depending on variety). Full growing instructions are provided.

SunPatiens® Planting & Care Tips

SunPatiens® can't be beaten for easy care and non-stop colour. Aside from regular watering, SunPatiens are virtually maintenance free. Plant them, step back and you will be delighted with the results!
 
Baskets & Containers

  •  Plant in well-drained potting soil if you are re-potting into larger containers or baskets
  •  Incorporate a slow release fertilizer into the potting media if the soil you are using does not already contain fertilizer
  •  If potting soil does not contain fertilizer, apply water-soluble fertilizer at label rates 2-3 times per month
  •  Place containers or baskets in full sun or shade
  •  Water plants well after planting and keep the media evenly moist until plants are established (7-10 days)
  • If plants wilt after they are established, simply water well and they should revive within 24 hours
  •  New leaves and new flowers will cover the old blooms so you don't need to remove old flowers or cut off older growth
  •  In most cases, SunPatiens should not be cut back to control size as it alters their natural form

In the Garden

  • Plant in well-drained soil, rich in organic matter such as compost
  • Incorporate a slow release fertilizer at label rates into the soil when you plant
  • An alternative way to fertilize is to apply water-soluble fertilizer at label rates 2-3 times per month
  • Plant in full sun or shade
  • Water plants well after planting and keep the media evenly moist until plants are established, which should be in 7-10 days
  • If plants wilt after they are established, simply water well and they should revive within 24 hours
  • In most cases, SunPatiens should not be cut back to control size as it alters their natural form but if Vigorous types get taller than desired in mid- to late summer, they can be cut back, taking off the top 1/3 of growth

General Growing Advice

Using a good quality multi-purpose compost, pot up your plugs into 13cm 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.

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.
