Our herb plugs are securely rooted, healthy plugs that would benefit from being grown on in 9/10cm pots for a few weeks before planting out in herb gardens, containers or hanging baskets. Tender varieties will need protecting from frost. Compost volume around 2.5 – 3cm deep x 3.2cm square. Foliage height 1.5cm – 5cm (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.
Supplied as medium plug plants, they were strong healthy plants with a good top growth and root system. I planted them on for 2 weeks before putting them in large tubs using a good compost mixed with perlite and vermiculite. They have been outside now for a month and all plugs are growing very well. Top quality plants, arrived the day after they were despatched, very well packaged.
The Thyme plugs were very healthy and already flowering and look as if they are going to grow into strong plants. I do not like the mesh plugs that they are planted in as I don't think the roots ever grow through through them properly. I removed them before I potted the plants into pots with good quality compost.
