Are small plug plants value for money?

You can purchase Plug Plants for about ₤ 5.00 and they were a combined bunch of Lavender, Delphiniums, Heuchera, Penstemon and the asian poppy, Papaver. The plants were small when they arrived and there were 60 small plants all of which were potted up into little pots and watered.

I have actually kept them in the greenhouse through late summer season and over winter season and the Heurcheras (image bottom left) are now small plants which I expect to have actually grown enough by early spring to plant out in around May of this year. If you have a little bit of time and persistence, these plants are good value to fill the gaps in borders, although they need a little growing on time. As with all little plants the idea is to pot them up into small pots and if required, pot them on once again into a slightly bigger pot. If you put a little plant in a large pot it will not like it, sulk and not grow on well. Small plants little pots is the key. This is well demonstrated when growing on tomatoes which begin of as small seedlings in little pots, then into a big pot, into a big pot and lastly a grow bag, or large pot for the rest of the summer season. This is a crucial part of growing tomatoes successfully and have a look at growing tomatoes for more suggestions

They are often cost hand out prices are good value for cash. Later in the year we can take a look at them in the borders and see how they are doing and if they flower.
