What are Small Plug Plants?
Small Plug plants are an excellent way to fill your garden with color. They are a fantastic way to buy your Bedding Plants or Annuals, Plants which typically just last for one season before dying off and need replacing. Value for money when buying bedding plants is therefore really important.
Some Bedding Plants, such as Busy Lizzies (Impatiens), Begonia and Petunia are also difficult to raise from seed. Buying them as Small Plug Plants ensures that you will receive all the plants that you require, and you don’t risk the disappointment of failed germination.
Small plug plants require a little bit of care before you plant them in the garden. They need to be grown on in a greenhouse for a couple of months until they have reached a good size and, for spring bedding plants, until the risk of frost has passed. When they are ready they should be hardened off gradually before introducing them to outdoor conditions.
