Wild flower plant plugs are little plants ready for you to plant out in the ground.
Plant plugs are a great alternative to using wild flower seeds if you wish for quick results. These colourful annuals flower throughout the spring and into late summer, they look great in flower beds, rockeries and in uncut grassy areas. I only have these lovely wild flowers available from late March and again from September. You can advance order them and I will send them out to you when they are ready to be planted. If you plant them from September onwards you get bigger plants by flowering time, being fully hardy they will happily survive the winter but naturally will often not produce flowers until the spring.
Just like my seed mixtures my plant plug collections contain the best wild flower species. This annual plant plug collection contains 5 different wild flower species, in varying but equal multiples depending upon the size of area you wish to plant up (see the ‘choose an option’ drop-down box further down the page). Each wild flower plant will be labelled with its name so you can choose what to plant where.

Please note very occasionally a species may become temporarily unavailable whereby I will replace it with a species just as special and suitable.
The plant plugs are sold as collections of 15, 30, 60 & 150 which are made up of 3, 6, 12 or 30 x each of the species listed which will provide enough plants for planting areas of 2m2, 5m2, 11½m2 and 31½m2 respectively when planted at my recommendation of ½m2 spacing between plants. You can make them cover greater areas by increasing your planting distance.
Please note: at first glance the number of plants listed against the planting areas may seem incorrect as 15 plants are listed as covering 2m2 yet 30 plants cover more than double that at 5m2 the reason for this is the cumulative effect of one edge of a planted metre square being already planted for the start of the next adjacent square metre. Accordingly the shape of the planting area dictates the number of plants used. For the purposes of my packs I have assumed fairly standard planting block shapes.
