A luscious blend of colours, which will look great when cascading over the edges of pots, windowboxes or hanging baskets. It flowers profusely from early summer through to autumn, often flowering so much that the foliage is obscured.
Grown in individual plug cells, each plant measures about 5 - 7cm tall (from the base of the root to the top of the plant). They are ideal for keen gardeners who have a greenhouse where the plants can be grown on until they are ready for planting out in the garden once all chance of frost has passed.

Q:Hi there - I've taken delivery of 3 trays of 40 (+20) plug plants that I'm going to use in baskets and boxes in a few weeks time, but I'm wondering what to do with the plugs right now. Should I plant out to trays so they have some room to expand before going in the baskets?

If you cannot plant these straight up into the baskets or pots now, then you can pot them up to grow them on. As for pests, they will be prone to attack from slugs and snails, so keep an eye out for these. The most important thing however is to protect them from frost, so cover them with frost fleece if the temperatures drop.Answered on 16/5/2014 by helen from crocus
