New to Maidenhead Aquatics online for the 2021 pond season, we thought we’d take a leaf out of the bedding plant trade’s book. Why not supply plants from the nursery as plugs?

These young plants would usually be potted into the one-litre size that we sell in-store, which then need to be moved up into suitable baskets to reach their full potential. Like daffodil or tulip bulbs, plug plants can be planted directly into larger containers which means unrestricted growth from the outset. This head start means the young plants mature faster and give better results.
