Vegetable Plug Plants From Our Plant Nursery
We sow vegetable seeds from our IONA range of seeds in our polytunnels and carefully grow them to 4/6 weeks old, once they are healthy young seedlings we dispatch them. When planted outdoors in Spring / Summer, Vegetable seeds take about 4 weeks to become healthy vegetable seedlings. If you plant some of our 4 week old vegetable plants at the same time of year then you are a month ahead which is important with our short summers. This 42 cell plant tray will hold 42 healthy vegetable plug plants when we send it out, you can choose up to 6 different vegetables from a range of over 40. Each veg plant chosen will fill a row of 7.
How It Works
Create your own custom selection of vegetable plants. The 42 cell plant tray is a modular tray with 48 cells for seedlings. Using our unique 'Choose Your Own' software above, you can fill the tray with 6 rows of 7 veg seedlings from our range of over 40 different, carefully grown vegetable plug plants. Simply click the 'Add To Tray' button beneath the vegetable you want to add to your tray and a row of 7 will be filled in with it. Repeat this process until the tray is full. You can easily remove a row of plants from the tray by clicking the 'Clear' button at the top and each row can be easily moved around the tray by dragging and dropping to re-position. Having multiples of each plant increases the likelihood of success when it comes to harvest time.
If you'd like plant or growing information on any of your chosen vegetables just click on the info button that is on the vegetables icon.
