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

The Chocolate Mint leaves have a minty and slightly chocolatey flavour,

The name of the plant comes as much from the colour of it's branches as its flavour this mint is best used in sweet dishes or drinks. A hardy perennial plant which is deciduous (disappears under ground in the winter) Will grow to around 40cm in height and spread and has purple flowers from late spring to early summer. This plant is a firm Favorited to make Mint Choc muffins and cup cakes where the leaves can be blitzed up and added to the mixture as well as using some fresh leaves on the top as a garnish. Mints are often over looked as ornamental plants but this is a mistake. They can bring a nice colour and structure to a garden or pot. Chocolate mint is one to look at as it has a lovely deep green/burgundy tinge to the leaves and stems
