So you have received your plants from us or you have just been to the Nursery...what next?
Unwrap your plants as soon as possible, make sure that the compost is lightly moist and place in a sheltered, sunny position until the time comes for planting. If the weather is cold, ensure that any tender varieties you may have purchased are in a frost-free place.
All our plants from our standard range are ready (weather permitting) to put in their final positions (garden, pots, hanging baskets, herb wheels etc)
Our herbs are grown in deep pots with a soil based compost. This means that they have a very good shelf life and they can remain in their pots for a while before planting out. If the particular herb has a large root system (e.g.Mint), the potential for a deep tap root (e.g. Fennel) or is feed hungry (Parsley) we recommend planting these on into larger pots or place them in the garden a bit sooner.
Each herb comes with it's own identification label which gives a good amount of cultural information. If you require more, we can help!
Herb Plugs are starter plants (rooted cuttings or fully germinated seeds)
We would advise growing these on a little in small pots with drainage holes using a soil based compost. Place in a sunny position in a greenhouse, conservatory or on a windowsill and ensure that the compost remains moist but not wet.
Once the plugs have established and the root system has developed well then you can treat them as above.
