Pot up flow­er­ing ten­der plants

Con­tinue the flower dis­play in your green­house by pot­ting a few plugs of flow­er­ing plants that’ll bloom through win­ter un­til spring. Primula mala­coides (be­low), as well as bel­lis, pan­sies and polyan­thus, are all avail­able now. Many bed­ding plants brought in­side can be pot­ted, trimmed and dead­headed to flower again.

RE­MOVE the plugs from their pack­ag­ing, tak­ing care not to dam­age them. You can wa­ter first to help them come out eas­ily.

FILL a small pot with mul­tipur­pose com­post and place the plug into the cen­tre be­fore firm­ing it in with your fin­gers.

SPACE out pots in a tray to give room for growth. Pour wa­ter into the bot­tom of the tray so the pots soak it up from the base.
