For the ardent gardener filling your garden with colour every year can be expensive, and many do not have the time or space to grow bedding plants from seeds. If you enjoy growing annuals there is a more cost effective way of making your garden beautiful and colourful each year.
Plug plants is the perfect alternative and are the best way to save money, they need little care simply because the garden centre or nursery of purchase has done all the hard work for you. A good nursery can produce plug plants from seed and ensure they have the best environment possible for successful germination.
Any garden centre or nursery will stock rows and rows of colourful garden plants that are ‘ready’ plants and as the name suggests they are ready to be planted out straight away, this is such a convenient way of showing off colour straight away, and will give that kick start to any garden early in the year.
Some gardeners want to go that extra mile and do in fact grow their own plug plants in a greenhouse or similar facility from garden seeds, planted in individual cells and then when they are about 4–8 cm in height from the root to the top of the stem and definitely after all risk of frost will then plant out in the garden. This of course gives great satisfaction to the gardener.
