100% Peat Free! We've worked hard with our specialist grower and are so pleased to be able to now offer these SUPER PLUGS, much bigger than the industry standard, healthy and ready to join you to form an important part of any wildlife garden.

A lovely plant with fern-like leaves and foamy cream flowers opening from pink buds. Also known as Fern leaf dropwort, This plant prefers full sun to partial shade. It is more tolerant of dry conditions than most other members of its genus.

It is a perennial of chalk and limestone downs and on heaths on other basic rocks. The tuberous roots and young leaves can be cooked as a vegetable or eaten raw as a salad. The taste is bitter sweet. Mature leaves smell of oil of wintergreen or now known as evergreen when crushed.

Although there is a minimum order requirement of 8 plugs when purchasing specific species, if selecting our Super Plug Bespoke Pack, you can select up to 4 species of your choice from our given list to make up a 16 pack (or greater), allowing you a wider choice of plug species if 8 of one is too many.  Find the link to our Super Plug Bespoke Pack here!

These specimens are available in 8 pack, 16 pack, 32 pack and 48 pack and they're ready to be shipped to you in a few days.  If you need ANY advice on planting or suitable plants for a specific area, please remember that as a Wild Your Garden customer you're entitled to free professional and tailored advice from our founder, Joel.
