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

Compact Marjoram plug plant. A must have herb for your garden and kitchen

One of the real good doers in the world of Herbs. Marjoram is used a huge amount in all manor of cuisine including Italian, French and these days British. The plant itself is relatively low growing to a height of around 20cm and will spread 30cm. Once established it’ll be very productive growing relatively fast and replacing the leaves you are picking off. These Compact Marjoram plug plants are the ideal size to start growing on. As a decorative plant it’s often overlooked but the white flowers which fill the plant in the Summer attract many insects as well as being a favourite for butterflies. As another plus, Marjoram will not get out of control like a Mint will and stays contained where you plant it. This makes it great for a border but that doesn’t mean it’s not good in a pot so don’t be afraid to put it in your herb pot too. To sum up If you use Marjoram in your cooking this is a must have plant. If you’re looking for a pretty herb that you can use in cooking it’s also great for that too.
