This daisy-like bedding plant produces daisy-like plants that bring a fantastic countryside look into the garden. Asters are sometimes known as ‘Michaelmas daisies’ because they flower late in the summer and early autumn which makes them an ideal transition plant that bridges the seasons, bringing colour and pollinators into you space later into the year.



How to care for asters?



Plant in any well-draining soil that receives dappled shade throughout the day. Asters can also be successfully grown in containers. Water lightly to keep the soil moist, but now wet, increasing during hot periods. Deadhead spent flowers to encourage new growth and cut back the plant hard in late autumn.



What are plug plants?



Plug plants are very young plants that come ready to go in the ground. They are grown in single units in modular trays and be either seedlings or cuttings. Buying plug plants lets you fill your beds and borders easily, and in a way that is stress-free for your plant since it allows for little root disturbance.



How do you plant a plug plant?



When you first get your plant home, remove any packaging except for the pot. Place the plant in a warm and sunny space for 2-4 hours to let them recover and acclimatise. You should try to plant your plug the same day if you can. To do this, dig a hole in your desired place that is slightly larger than the root ball and soil around it and put the plug inside. Cover with the existing earth and press down lightly. Water well for the first week to help the plant establish itself and feed with an all-purpose feed after 3 weeks.
