How you will receive your plants:

Selected by our team of experts and sent from our nursery, you will receive your 12 garden ready plug plants from September to October in plug trays in a box. These are designed to keep your plants secure and to prevent damage in transit.

Can’t plant straight away?

If you aren't able to plant your plugs up straight away then ensure they stay moist. You can place your plugs on a saucer or tray of shallow water so they are able to stay hydrated. Aim to have your plugs planted within 3 days.

Planting tips and hints:

Planting in the ground: 

Before planting, dig in plenty of well-rotted farmyard manure Dig a hole approximately twice as deep and 3 times as wide as the plant, if your soil is heavy mix in general-purpose compost, horticultural sand and stone or potting grit to ensure good drainage. Space plants 75cm apart. Gently compact the soil around the plant and water thoroughly.

Water regularly during dry periods.

Harvest while the heads are still firm and compact, cutting the stem below the head with a knife.
