Wildflower plug plant collections

From our Wildflower plug plants we have created a  range of plug plant collections to help you select wildflowers for a specific project/theme. The collections below are trays of 35 or 70 plants including at least 8 species from the list given. If you prefer to choose your own species and numbers of plugs, you can also order in multiples of 5 from the plant sections of the website.
For more help see our article How to Choose and Use Plug Plants or contact us with your enquiry
Our plug plants are over 70ml, (please click for image) so the rootball is well-developed and water retention is increased and this improves their survival rates after planting. Once planted in their final spot,regular watering until they are established will also be very beneficial. We recommend 2-10 plugs / sqm depending on the species and the site.

Many of our wildflower plug plants are available all year round, although a few are seasonal.
On occasion, some plug plants may need to grow on a little so they are robust enough to send in which case we will contact you and let you know.

Wildflower 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.

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, Meadow saxifrage, Musk mallow,Wild carrot, Goatsbeard
