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

Fantastic fast growing herb plant that makes a very good house plant. What is Stevia? The plant itself has been grown for hundreds of years in South America and was first discovered by a Swiss botanist named Moises Santiago Bertoni when working in Paraguay. The leaves have been used traditionally for hundreds of years in South America to sweeten local teas and medicines. Growing Stevia plants. Whilst it's possible to grow Stevia from seed we prefer to take cuttings. As a plant the germination rates are not very good from seed. At the nursery we take cuttings almost all year round resulting in good strong plants. Stevia is a plant that likes a fair bit of warmth we grow ours around 15-20 degrees making it a perfect plant for indoors. In the summer months it can be grown outside and makes a nice talking point at barbecues. When it comes to choosing compost for your plants a good multi purpose soil is ideal. Stevia enjoys a well drained open compost making sure that the plant does not sit wet. If you can find a multi purpose compost with added john innes that would be ideal. You can always add some grit or perlite to the compost yourself to help open up the soil. I like Stevia as a house plant. It'll happily grow on a sunny windowsill or in the conservatory but make sure it gets adequate warmth over the winter (15-20 degrees centigrade). When potting your plants up make sure you bare in mind where the plant will be living. There's no point in choosing a giant pot if it won't fit on the windowsill. The plug plants that we grow pot on very nicely into a 9-12cm pot which can be plastic, ceramic or terracotta whichever style you prefer. Once you've potted the plants on it'll take them a little while to settle into their new home but after a few days or weeks you should start seeing some fresh growth.
