Recommended Pot Sizes:

Pot Spacing:

It is advisable to follow the guidelines regarding the suggested volume that each size plant prefers to be potted into. Typically, these pots would be grown on before planting into containers or the ground, as you would a fully grown plant from the garden centre. Alternatively, you can transplant your plants together with several other pots or plugs into the final container or basket. You will just have to be a little more careful with the watering to ensure they are not over, or underwatered, especially if each plant has far more, or less volume of compost than recommended to grow into.

Typical time required from pot to sale:

0 weeks over Winter

0 weeks in Spring / Summer

Based on producing a finished pot size of 1L for plug products and 2L for liner products. (*)

Growing Media / Irrigation / Water Capacity:

The compost (rooting medium) we use in our plugs and pots is "peat reduced" and more commonly in the past season "peat free" medium, which is predominantly composed of coir fibres. We created the peat free media to try and replicate the qualities of traditional substrate, so it is very difficult to tell the different media apart by eye. All of our plants have a little slow release fertiliser in the plug already, to provide an initial boost for you when planting on, but they will love to be potted into a medium which has fertiliser incorporated, or added to it. The compost/media root ball itself for our plug plants is usually wrapped in biodegradable paper. The paper allows increased rooting at our stage of production and easier transplant of the plugs into your pots. You do not need to remove the paper from the plug. Our plug paper is fully biodegradable and will degrade over the course of the season once planted. The speed of the paper biodegrading depends on moisture and soil temperatures.
