Other species may be included depending on availability.
Our Garden meadow collections contain either 54 or 108 plants including at least 9 species from the list given, however if you prefer to choose your own species and numbers of plugs, you can order in multiples of 6 from the plant sections of this website.
We recommend planting 6 plugs / sqm depending on the species and the site. Our 59ml square plug plants grown in peat free compost are a good size for water retention which will help their survival rates after planting. Regular watering is advised if possible until they are established, but is not essential depending on the weather and location.
If meadow seed has already been sown, plug plants are also an ideal addition to an area. They can be used to add impact, and specific wild flower species can be chosen to balance the area.
If planting in grassland, please ensure that the grass species present are fine lawn or meadow grasses rather than tall, vigorous species such as rye grass or couch grass, as this will be more suitable to establish your colourful garden meadow.
If vigorous grasses are present, you may consider the coarse grassland collection. Alternatively try removing some of the grasses in a small area prior to planting and wait for these to establish, then continue to plant small areas over time.
For more help see our article How to Choose and Use Plug Plants or contact us with your enquiry and we are always happy to help and advise.
Plug plants are available for much of the year although the best time to plant is usually from March – May and September – October depending on the weather and location.
