Low flowering lawn plant plug collection

These wild flowers will tolerate of a regular mowing regime and so you can maintain a short mown lawn yet still enjoy all the benefits of colourful wild flowers. The plants I have selected for this plug collection flower lower down on short stems and flower quite prolifically and resume flowering quite quickly following mowing. Plant them straight into your lawn and maintain a mowing height of about 2 inches to create a fabulous wild flower lawn, great for bees, butterflies and humans!


Plant plugs are a great alternative to using wild flower seeds if you wish for quick results. Being hardy natives you can plant them at any time of year: spring, summer, autumn or winter or you can leave them in their pots for a couple of weeks to let them get even bigger before planting out.

Just like my seed mixtures my plant plug collections contain a lot of special species, with 15 different wild flower species in each collection, in varying but equal multiples depending upon the size of area you wish to plant up. Each wild flower plant is labelled with its name so you can choose what to plant where.

Please note very occasionally a species may become temporarily unavailable whereby I will replace it with a species just as special and suitable.

The plant plugs are sold as collections of 1, 2, 4 or 10 x each of the species listed which will provide enough plants for planting areas of 2m2, 5m2, 11½m2 and 31½m2 respectively when planted at my recommendation of ½m2 spacing between plants. You can make them cover greater areas by increasing your planting distance.

Please note: at first glance the number of plants listed against the planting areas may seem incorrect as 15 plants are listed as covering 2m2 yet 30 plants cover more than double that at 5m2the reason for this is the cumulative effect of one edge of a planted metre square being already planted for the start of the next adjacent square metre. Accordingly the shape of the planting area dictates the number of plants used. For the purposes of my packs I have assumed fairly standard planting block shapes.
