Our small garden collection is a tray of 27 plug plants for those customers who wish to plant a small garden area with wildflowers, or have several containers they wish to plant to attract bee, butterflies and other wildlife to the garden. The approximate area that could be planted is 4.5m2
As a collection, there will be 9 species from the list given, selected in multiples of just 3 of each, so therefore suited to a smaller space. Each wildflower can be planted in a group of 3 to attract pollinators in a border, or some such as Vipers bugloss can be planted as individual plug plants and allowed to self seed. If you prefer to choose your own species and numbers of plugs, you can of course order from the plant sections of this website, where each are sold in multiples of 6.
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.
These plug plants are ideal to attract a range of bees, butterflies and other insect pollinators to the garden.
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.
Plugs 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. A mini collection could be planted at any time if regular watering can be maintained to help them establish.
