Potting your plugs plants up & then growing them on in the ground outdoors

Use a dibber or pencil to push the plants out through the base of the plant tray to avoid damaging the plant.

Pot up into trays or individual pots - our Potting On Kit is perfect for the job. Pot each plug into 7.5cm (3in) pots using a good multi-purpose compost or a container compost. When potting up the plugs handle the plants carefully by the root ball (the plug-plant soil) to try and avoid damage to the stems. Fill the pots or trays with good compost with a little slow-release fertiliser mixed in.

Grow on for a few weeks in a light, frost-free place, but try to avoid direct sunlight. Keep them moist but do not over-water.

Some varieties naturally grow tall and leggy at first. They can be encouraged to ‘bush-out’ by pinching out the growing tip. You can do this literally by pinching off the top of the plant just above a branching point.

When plants have grown and formed a good root system within their pots they can be planted outdoors in containers or in the direct ground.
