Garden ready plants
Garden-ready plants are a convenient, hassle-free way to quickly establish your hanging baskets, pots, containers, and borders. To ensure your plants get off to the best start, plant them into their final positions as soon as you can after they arrive in the post.
What should I do when my garden ready plug plants arrive?
As soon as you receive your plants, remove them from their packaging and check that the compost is moist. If it’s dry, water carefully using a small watering can, and allow it to drain before standing the plants upright in a warm place.
Can I plant my plugs straight into the ground?
All our garden ready plants have been grown under ideal conditions and inspected by one of our experts prior to packaging, to make sure they’re ready to plant out as soon as you receive them. Having said that, if conditions are particularly wet, cold, or if there's frost, you should wait until it has passed before planting your plants into their final positions in the garden.
What if I can’t plant straight away?
Provided you keep the compost moist, your plants will last up to three days without being planted, but to achieve best results, try to get them into the soil as soon as you can.
