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

Coriander herb starter plant. A must have herb plant.

This soft lush green leaved herb is an essential addition to many dishes including curries, tagines and many more. Coriander is an annual plant that needs to be grown year after year. In the wild, Coriander can be found growing all over Eastern and Southern Europe. Growing to around 20cm in height and spread it’s an ideal plant for a kitchen window or to be grown in a pot outside. As Coriander doesn’t like frost it’s best to bring it outside in mid May at the earliest. Every part of Coriander is edible, however it’s generally the leaves which are used in the UK. The stems, seeds and roots are all edible and all have very distinctive flavours. The seeds and leaves are traditionally used in Indian cooking with the roots being used in Thai cooking, being ground into a paste to add to curry pastes. When growing Coriander it’s important not to keep the soil too wet. In general the plant likes to be in a sunny spot but if we have a particularly hot day it does like bit of shade. If you’re growing Coriander in a good soil you’ll probably not need to feed it, especially if you’re picking regularly. If the leaves do lose their deep green colour a standard plant food will soon perk it up. To sum up If you like Indian and Thai cooking it’s hard to imagine not having Coriander. The good news is that it’s easy to grow and tastes even better when picked from your own plants.
