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.

Using a good quality multi-purpose compost, pot up your plugs into 10cm pots or 6 cell trays. 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 20/40 plug plants gently remove the small plugs from the tray by pushing up from the bottom using a pencil.

Heliotrope marine blue
Thursday, 17 June 2021  | 

I have ordered a number of items from your website in this and previous years and have always been very pleased with the quality of your plants as well as the packaging and delivery. However the heliotrope I ordered were a big disappointment. Other items delivered at the same time were in good order but not the heliotrope. The description on your web page were for large plug plants but these were anything but. Small, puny and in very poor condition. I do appreciate heliotrope can be difficult when young, in fact I had already ordered some from one of your competitors earlier in the year, only to be told when I was expecting them to be dispatched, that their quality was not of a standard they thought good enough to sell. Hence my order from you later than I would normally do. On receipt I potted the plug plants in individual pots and put them in ‘my care home’ for extra attention. One died on the following day, another a few days later and the remainder just sat around and did nothing. I had to throw them last weekend. It was obvious they weren’t going to improve. I didn’t contact you on receipt as I understand that problems can arise with plants and I am normally very pleased with the quality you send out, but when I received your e.mail requesting my rating of the delivery, I thought I would let you know. I don’t think the heliotrope were in a good enough condition for sale and perhaps your dispatch team should have brought this to someone’s attention. This will not prevent me from using your company in the future as I have always found your plants and service good.


Response:

Thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear that you have been disappointed and have now emailed you to look into this further.
