Plugs are best planted in groups of 3 after mowing grass. please do not remove the grass out of the plugs. Ensure plugs are well firmed in. It is always better to plant directly into the ground and not pot on.

Unfortunately due to unprecedented demand these plugs are now sold out for 2020. These will next be available in April 2021 and will be available to order from June 2020.
