Plug Plants

Posted: 14/03/2016 at 10:45

All my garden flowers started of as cheap plugs, then I have taken seeds and divided from there. If you can afford 48 large plants at around 5.00 each, then you can of course buy them and they will flower this year.

those plugs won't, you need to pot them on gradually and over winter them this coming winter, also, pick any flower buds of them this year, so they can make decent roots, they can't make root and flower. 

If you have the patience, then get them, but they will be a long slow process to bring them on to good sized plants. Even then, I wouldnt recommend T &M, there is a thread on here somewhere saying they are not very good.

We have one, OH has used it all day, we have a mountain of moss, it's the same every spring. later, in early April we will use a weed,feed and moss killer.  worth buying for that price, ours was 99.00 so go for it.

I haven't had them outside either, but I use the same as Dove, you have to follow up though, one dose doesn't do it.

So you took Doves advise and tied a ribbon on it then

Hydrangea Soil PH?

Not sure they will stay white, I dig my whites out after a couple of years,they first turn to pale grey then a dirty pale grey/ blue, then they're out.

i have just one left now that had stayed white, but my soil is very acid,
