PEAT FREE Fox and Cubs ‘Hieracium aurantiacum’ SUPER PLUGS

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.

The name of ‘Fox-and-Cubs’ refers to the way that many of the as-yet un-opened flower heads hide beneath those that have opened. The seed-head of orange hawkweed is both smaller and coarser than that of the dandelion, to which it is related. Highly attractive to a wide array of pollinators, the flowers are orange, almost red, which is virtually invisible to bees, yet they also reflect ultraviolet light, increasing their conspicuousness to pollinators.

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.
