Young plug plants will arrive by post ready for planting immediately so unpack them at once and moisten the rootballs if the compost is dry.
Most plugs should come with planting instructions, so read these first. Plant the plugs in well-prepared soil, burying the rootballs and firming around them.
Space out salads or other plug plants evenly across the bed. Alternatively, if space is at a premium, you can plant them in large pots instead.
Water them in well, particularly if conditions are dry, and cover salad plants with cloches or fleece to protect them during very cold weather.
