Size guide - Pack of 5 Herb Plug Plants 

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.

•    Ensure that your tender plug plants are grown on in 10cm pots in fresh compost and placed in a warm spot, ideally a windowsill or propagator.  
•    These herbs do not like the cold during their initial growth period, so fluctuations in temperatures are best avoided.
•    Once the roots have filled the pots, they will benefit from being potted on to a larger pot for a few more weeks or if you have a frost free spot in the garden they can be planted out.  
•    A neutral, well-drained soil is ideal that is not too high in nutrients.
•    Water in well initially and snip the herbs with a pair of scissors as you need them.
•    Mulch the base of the plants in late autumn to give them protection from the harshest cold weather and they may grow back next year.

5 lovely healthy plants arrived on the day I was advised, in good condition, well packed and taste so sweet. I pick every day and dry some for the winter to keep me going. Only complaint, the stock ran out before I could recommend them to the several friends who would have bought too.

Excellent packaging. Unfortunately plants are at flowering stage, therefore almost past leaf production,
Which is what stevia (sweet leaf) is grown for. That is at this stage the plants are useless.
