They were free, so deffo not complaining, but I was gobsmacked by how small the plugs are :ohmy:
I've never, ever, seen plugs that small :lol: good and strong though.
I think they breathed a sigh of relief when I potted them into the bigger plug size modules I had, good job I saved them from last year ;)

Result :D Thanks so much for posting the offer!

got mine today - instructions say they'll last 3 days in the plugs then pot them

can i plant them straight out to a basket?

Title: Re: free plants
Post by: maxyboo on April 19, 2011, 22:13
Got mine too. Not the seeds though. The plugs are tiny but the plants are strong and healthy. I don't actually need them or know where to put them but can't resist a bargain!

you could plant them straight into a basket but you will have to keep the basket inside until the risk of frost has passed. i have planted mine up into bigger modules, they won't get planted out side until mid may, as you are further north you may have to keep them in until early june
