If you take cuttimgs...your own or cadge them from friends and neighbours.....they will be just as big, or bigger, than the plugs often supplied. It's how I started my garden collection.
I took lavendar cuttings last year for a friend.....I planted a bed of them for her.....and this year they are already filling 9cm pots. All for FREE
Whenever I buy a plant or shrub I take cuttings from them or, if they are large enough and out of season I divide them.......for FREE.
I have never been happy with plug purchases.....really,,they are no quicker or better than your own propagated ones
