Size guide - Tray of 40 Plug Plants 

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 before planting out ready to flower. Tender varieties will need protecting from frost. Compost volume around 2.6cm deep x 1.8cm square. Foliage height 1.5cm-5cm (depending on variety). Full growing instructions are provided.

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.

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 40/20 plug plants gently remove the small plugs from the tray by pushing up from the bottom using a pencil. 

Cosmos Specific Advice

Regular deadheading of cosmos will encourage and prolong more blooms. If deadheads remain then the cosmos will self-seed. Do not over fertilise as this will promote more foliage growth rather than more flowers. Pinching out the tips at around 15-20cm will encourage bushier plants.

Cosmos plug plants
Tuesday, 22 June 2021  | 

Arrived well packed and healthy. Most plugs actually had 2 plants per plug so could be separated carefully, so good value particularly at reduced price. Planted straight out into boarder because I ordered them a bit late. Thriving now but still too early to flower yet.

When my cosmos plants came I was delighted to find that there are two or three plants in each cell and that they are very healthy, strong plants. I would recommend them to everyone!

General Comments
Tuesday, 25 May 2021  | 

Plants received on time, in good condition and and an ideal size and root structure for immediate potting on. There have been no failures since then, but growth has been slow due to the cool weather (except Lobelias, which have thrived in the conditions). As always, I have been impressed by the quality and the way you have kept me informed on progress. This review applies to all plants ordered, other than Geraniums, which were cancelled.

Amazing!
Wednesday, 19 May 2021  | 

They are really tiny plugs and I wondered if I would get nice plants from them. I potted them on and they just burst into growth. Really strong plants that have delighted me. I ordered 3 lots of 40 tiny plugs and I had a success rate of 98%, which IS amazing for me. I am a very amateur gardener!
