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)

Advice & Tips for growing Surfinia

Surfinias are great in hanging baskets and patio containers and will produce a cascade of colour before long. The key to success is regular feeding (once a week) and regular deadheading of faded flowers. One plant should be sufficient in anything up to a diameter of around 20cm. In larger containers 3-5 plants would be advisable

We recommend pinching out the growing tip of the plug plants at time of planting. This will produce much bushier growth. Pinch just above a leaf joint, aiming to leave 2-3 pairs of leaves if possible.

Try to keep Surfinias in a position that is fairly cool but not cold. Growing in too warm conditions will result in soft ‘leggy’ growth. Once the plant has made a good bushy framework, temperatures of above 12o will promote flowering

Keep the compost fairy moist, but not waterlogged. If you notice a yellowing of the leaves during the early growing stages this is probably due to the plants drying out. Try to avoid keeping the foliage wet for prolonged periods to prevent Botrytis and Mildew diseases and do not allow plants to be wet overnight

Grow your plants on in their pots for about 8 weeks. They will benefit from feeding during this period starting 3 weeks after potting, then weekly after that. A general balanced liquid feed is fine.

Although do not bury the plugs, ensure they are planted to a sufficient depth to anchor mature plants

I have left 5 stars as even though there was a problem with my order the service I received was excellent. I was offered a refund which was issued immediately and without any problems. I also bought a pink/rose vein petunia which arrived quickly and in good condition. I also already have some Blue Vein petunias and they are wonderful. They have an amazing scent and are very attractive and unusual looking, I have left 5 stars as even though there was a problem with my order the service I received was excellent.
