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. 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.

Evergreen herbs are the backbone of any herb garden.  The plants are tough, with scented leaves, giving intense flavours in cookery. Their shrubby woody growth, can withstand the coldest winter weather, although they do not like to be waterlogged.

These herbs are not fussy where they are put around the garden and will survive in almost any given spot.   I have Sage, Rosemary and Thyme thriving in a north facing situation where they only get a bit of sun.

  • Although your plug plants will benefit from potting on in the early stages to encourage strong root growth, they can be put into a cold frame or cool greenhouse straightaway and don’t need too much ‘mollycoddling’.
  • Ensure that the plants are watered and fed during the first seasons growth.  In subsequent years all you will need to do is keep the plants in shape by pruning and then they will reward you with years’ worth of flavoursome leaves.
