| Wild flower plugs can be planted from late September through to April.You would aim to plant 5 to 7 plugs per square metre. Aim to concentrate them in a few areas if the budget does not cover the cost of planting them all over.Make sure that you plant at least 3 of any one species near to each other.Plant them a few days after receipt or as soon a possible. Make sure that they are firmly placed in the soil so that a bird or small animal can not pull them back out again.The Plugs that we supply are 37mm in volume. Most companies produce them only to 25mm. This gives them potentially a better root development. The size is about 1 inch square at the top and tapers down 4 to 5 inches in length.
It is important to understand that perennial plugs will take a while to establish.
If planted in the spring it is unlikely that they will flower in the same year. Because they are perennials they will establish and then flower in the second year. But importantly will then come back year after year.
Wildflower plugs are best planted between September and May
