Size guide - Tray of 84 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. 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.

Surfinia Specific Advice

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

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

General Growing Advice

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.

Best baskets ever.

Just wanted to
congratulate you on such wonderful plants you supplied to me this year, I
have been ordering plug plants for around ten years and can honestly say
nowhere else comes close to yours. I have had plants from all the big names
in send away plants and have never received plants as such well protected
and healthy as yours, I knew when opening the box I had something special
here. Usually when potting on very small plugs I have expected some to die
off but not yours every single one lasted the whole season. It was the
reasonable price for your Surfinia Pentuinas that made me first order from
you and this years baskets have been the best they have every been. Thanks
for such great plants.
