Plug Plants

A plug plant is a general term for seedlings or rooted cuttings that have been started in trays of individual cells and we grow over 200 different varieties of hanging basket plug plants, either propagated on our own nursery from seed or cuttings. Plug plants are available in the garden centre from the mid March.

In order to give your plug plants the best possible start we suggest that you follow these simple instructions.

  • Lightly water your plants with a watering can and rose or stand the plants up in 1cm of water and leave for 2 minutes.

  • Donít plant summer flowering plants out until the risk of frost has completely passed.

  • Plug plants should be potted on into pots to increase their size before being planted out in the garden.

  • Alternatively plug plants can be directly planted into a hanging basket.
