wild flower plug collections

Our plug plants are extra large, over 70ml, so the rootball is well-developed and water retention is increased and this improves their survival rates after planting. Regular watering until they are established will also be very beneficial. We recommend 2-10 plugs / sqm depending on the species and the site.
The collections below are trays of 35 plants including at least 8 species from the list given. If you want to choose your own species and numbers of plugs you can order in multiples of 5 from the plant sections of this website. For more help see our article How to Choose and Use Plug Plants or contact us with your enquiry

Many of our plug plants are available all year round. If  your order cannot be dispatched immediately we will contact you and let you know when they will be sent.

Wild flower meadow collection

These flowers are suitable for planting into grassland in a sunny situation. For best results please ensure that the grass species present are fine lawn or meadow grasses rather than tall, vigorous species such as rye grass or couch grass.
For planting into bare soil we recommend sowing a meadow seed mix which includes meadow grasses and some flower species. Additional flower species can then be added using plug plants.
Plugs will contain a selection from the following list:

Ox eye daisy, Meadow buttercup, Common knapweed, St John’s wort, Field scabious, Birdsfoot trefoil, Cowslip, Yarrow, Meadow vetchling, Lady’s bedstraw, Red clover, Self heal, Wild marjoram, Agrimony, Quaking grass, Betony, Primrose, Great burnet, Common sorrel.
