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 use the 6 Pack Cell Plant Trays. Once your Verbena plug plants have been potted on and labelled, water them in well and grow on for 5-6 weeks.

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 or use our Organic range of feed Neudorff Organic Multi Purpose Plant Feed 1L Concentrate.

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.

Brookside Nursery Top Tip – Pinching out the first flower buds will ensure that the plant will put its energies into a good root system and foliage growth which will result in a stronger, bushier plant with more flowers.

Good strong plugs

They were well packaged & after a good soak I potted them up for a while, then planted them in pots. The plugs were large and had plenty of roots. They're looking healthy and will hopefully grow well.
