Young plants are grown in the ideal plug size to provide the best conditions required during the first stage of each plant’s development. Usually measuring approximately 8-15cm (3-6”) from root base to stem tip, although they are often larger. In ideal conditions they may be planted directly into the ground, however, we recommend they are potted on for 3-4 weeks to develop strong root growth prior to planting out.
Potted plants(5cm, 7cm & 9cm) are in the next stage of development, for those of you who like instant gardening. These can be either planted straight out soon after arrival or grown on a little longer in pots, whichever you prefer.
Bare roots are not always pretty on arrival but they are at least one year old and have been harvested from the field whilst dormant during the winter. We store them in necessary conditions, until you are ready to receive them.
Bulbs and Corms come in various sizes although this is not directly relevant to the eventual size of the plant. You do not have to worry about planting immediately on arrival as they will store well in a cool dry place for a couple of weeks..
