Plant Sizes

 

Most of our plants are grown in our standard sized plug

Each 65cc plug measures 56x36mm, 62mm tall

We also sell some plants in 8cm pots and contract-grow in other sizes.

PLEASE NOTE - Always check the size of plugs before you order as other suppliers may offer smaller plugs at reduced rates.

 

Cumbria Wildflowers - Our Plant Sizes

MORE INFORMATION about our wildlfower plugs, pots and sizes

Wildflower plug plants are small plants grown in plug trays. All our plants are UK native species and we can guarantee where they come from as we harvest our seed from wild places. We work with a number of wildlife organisations and landowners to take wild seed responsibly. This seed is used to grow the plants. We have a wide range of wildflower plug plants for sale for a wide range of habitats.

All our plants are grown in PEAT FREE compost. We have blended a coir and plant based compost which ensures the plants start off in suitable growing medium. Our plugs are a minimum of 6 months old with some over 12 months. This means our plugs have a well developed root system, critical for the plant establishing once planted out. If you were to buy smaller plugs please be aware there is a higher risk of plant failure since the plants have a smaller root area.

Our 8cm pots also use the PEAT FREE compost with a range of our plugs grown on in this larger pot. We also undertake a contract grow service where clients can request plants grown in other different sized plugs.

You can plant all year but to give the plants the best start we recommend planting out from March to October.
