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.

Perennial plants come in hundreds, if not thousands, of varying shapes, sizes and colours and if you are like me, you will always find room for one more in your garden!  They are reliable, hardy plants that breathe life into beds and borders from late spring to late autumn and beyond. These plants are also very attractive to pollinating bees, butterflies and beneficial insects.

  • Our perennials are supplied as either large or jumbo plug plants, depending on the variety, with a good root system and healthy top growth.
  •  Your plugs will benefit from being grown on in large pots, approx. 5 - 10Ltr size.
  • Give them a good soak in tepid water to ensure the roots get a thorough soak.
  • Plant into a good quality multi-purpose compost and water them in.  Pop a label in the pot to remind you what it is.
  • Plant out into the final planting positions after a few weeks when the risk of frost has passed in your area. 
  • Planting in groups of 3’s or 5’s will give a good clump of colour as the plants mature.
  • A good spadeful of organic matter popped into the planting hole will get your plants off to really good start.
  • Give them a good drink of water and water regularly during their first year’s growth and feed with a sprinkling of granular slow release fertiliser.

*With a little planning you can have perennial plants in flower for several months of the year - almost all year round in milder areas.

Good strong and healthy plugs currently growing on in the greenhouse and doing well!
A great variety , I grow it most years as it's reliably strong , disease free and easy to dead head.

Good strong plants

Good strong plants (far better than the tray of 80). New gardeners should be warned to straighten the spiralling roots for best onward growth.

Good plants, but not as large as I had hoped.

Stunning display of large flowers ...
Thursday, 9 January 2020  | 

Arrived in early 2019 as healthy plug plants and planted in various locations around the garden. Foliage is not particularly attractive but these plants do produce a profusion of eye-catching flowers over a long period. The root system is not very substantial (for a plant of their size) so avoid planting in a wind-exposed site. Other websites suggest these plants are best regarded as an annual.


Thank you so much for your review. We really appreciate your comments and look forward to hearing from you again.

Thank you very much for your review. We love to hear from happy customers and we look forward to hear from you again.

Now 1/2 price
Wednesday, 8 May 2019  | 

Received today, disappointed to see they are now 1/2 price, as this was the earliest delivery date available, expected plants to be more advanced in growth, will be a while before large enough go into garden.


Thank you for your review on our plants. From time to time our plants do go into the sale, but these would have been for a later delivery week than when yours were delivered.

Please do take a look at the size guide and advice on these tabs, Large plug plants should only need around 4 weeks after growing them in pots, as advised, before they can go into your garden. Please get in touch with us on email if you have an other queries

Came well-packed and are thriving, having been potted on. They'll be going into the garden early next month-looking forward to a lovely display. And the bees should be happy too.
