Value Plug Plants
These larger cell grown plants will develop very quickly once planted in 7 to 9cm pots. Ease them from their tray using the dibber stick provided, pushing through the base hole of each cell, then plant into the centre of the pot ensuring all the roots are covered but that the stem and leaves remain exposed. Alternatively, plant into trays of compost. Begonias and impatiens should ideally be grown on at a minimum temperature of 18°C (65°F). For other plants 16°C (60°F) would be suitable.
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.
On delivery of your plants you need to do this straight away: Carefully unpack your plants and check that the compost is moist. If it’s dry, water carefully using a small watering can and allow to drain. Stand in a light, warm place and then follow the ‘growing on’ instructions. Provided they are kept moist, they can usually be left for up to 3 days. Your plants have been grown under ideal conditions and inspected by one of our experts prior to careful packaging and despatch by post. However, should they have been damaged or delayed during delivery, please contact us immediately.
Ideal for beds and borders, patio pots and containers, hanging baskets. Prefers full sun or partial shade.
