Growing Information

Garden Ready Plug Plants

Always ensure that the risk of frost has passed before you plant these into the garden. Should there still be a risk in your area then we suggest that you pot these plants into a 7 to 9cm pot and allow them to develop further somewhere warm and light, before planting, rather than leave them in the growing tray. For planting directly into the garden, ensure that the soil has been dug over and lumps broken down, then plant straight into their flowering position. In areas where the existing soil is poor, incorporate a good handful of compost into each area you are planting. Once planted don’t forget to give your plants a drink and protect them from any slugs and snails that may appear.

Feeding

Mix a light application of a balanced organic fertiliser into the soil prior to planting. In summer, drench plants every two weeks with a liquid fertiliser.

Ideal for beds and borders, patio pots and containers. Prefers full sun or partial shade.
