Pot and plant size guide


When you are shopping on line it can be hard to know what size the plants are and what you are getting. This size guide is to help you know what you are getting.


Starter/Plug Plants
Starter plants (often known as plug plants) are cost effective way of buying plants. All of our plants are grwon in a 4.5cm by 5cm plug. This is bigger than most nurseries but we prefer to have a more established plant. The plants are well rooted and ready to be planted up either into a pot or (if the time of year is right) straight into the garden.
6cm Potted Plants
This is the perfect size for chilli and pepper plants in the early part of the year. In the early months of their life chillies can be a bit delicate. That is why we prefer to send them to you in a small pot. It reduces stress on the plant and helps keep the roots both protected and a little warmer.
9cm Potted Plants
9cm pots are the one of the most cost effective ways of buying plants. All of our 9cm plants have been growing for a long enough period of time to make sure you get a well rooted established plant. This size is perfect for planting out (when the weather permist) and means you get a established garden quicker.
1 litre Jumbo Potted Plants
These are big pots. Around 13cm in diameter and around the same depth. This takes a lot of the growing time away from you giving you are far bigger plant. This pot size is often ready from mid to late April onwards.

Plant Description

Basil Dark Lady herb plug plants

It's easy to see how this has quickly become one of our favourite new Basil varieties!   Not only is it a very attractive herb with dark red, almost black foliage fringed with a light green edge. But it's also hardy, vigorous and high yielding.   The very attractive foliage has a strong, spicy flavour and is great for adding to chicken or pasta dishes. It is slightly toothed and prominently veined making this Basil a good ornamental herb for the garden or windowsill.   The plant has a vigorous, robust habit and can be saved overwinter if given enough light and heat. It will generally grow to around 70cm and spread around 50cm.

Some info about this plant and some of the conditions it's happy to grow in.
