I have taken delivery of perrenial jumbo plugs.

rudbeckia,hollyhocks,lupis,grasses.

Can I put them out now??.or wait.

Instruction on leaflet not clear.

I always grow plugs on for a bit before planting out but others might do something different. For me the plants I plant out need to be a decent size with a good root system otherwise they get swamped.

Thank you,so are you saying I should re pot on,and leave in greenhouse?

They are only babies.

David Richards. No don't put them out until spring. Your jumbo plugs really want to just tick over during the winter so you don't usually pot on at this time of the year. Are they in pots at moment?

If not then put in 9 cm pots and leave in greenhouse. All your plants are hardy so dont fuss over them too much

Hi Christopher2, No they are not in pots.

They are just as they where delivered.

David -as you seen so unsure of what to do-did you read the other discussion in the link?-just put them in pots and over-winter in the greenhouse-they are too small to plant out in he garden,

Thanks,just read the other discussion,pot them on it is then,Cheers.

Did anyone read the article on autumn planting in the RHS magazine? Not specifically about plug plants, I know, but my dad always taught me that you plant perennials in autumn.

You do plant perennials in the autumn, but not plug plants until they have grown on a bit.

I know that they are a cheap way of increasing plant stocks but pot on your plugs and be SURE not to over water whilst overwintering in the greenhouse! I only buy annuals as plug plants, start your perennials earlier to give them a chance in the winter!
