Contains the following baby plants
When your garden arrives, your plants will need to be unpacked and watered before they are ready to plant. Follow our three step guide below:
Your baby plants will arrive carefully packed in straw. They may look a little tired from their travels. This is quite normal but, as soon as possible, carefully unpack them all.
Each type of plant will have an identification label to help you spot which they are. Lay them out into their respective plant types (e.g. lettuce, cauliflower, peas).
The roots may be dry, so give them all a good drink of water by standing the plants upright, being especially careful with the ones that aren’t in bio pots, and submerging the roots for a few minutes in a container of clean water.
When you’re ready to plant your Rocket Garden there’s a very simple 3 step process to planting them; whether you’re planting in pots, containers, grow bags, raised beds or straight into the ground.
Using a trowel or a dibber (basically a pointed stick) make a hole big enough in the soil to fit the roots of your baby plant and ideally sprinkle in a handful of wormcast fertiliser. This will give your plants a great start in their new home and help to feed them throughout the growing season.
Carefully place the plant into the hole, making sure it is standing upright.
Cover up the roots of the plant using some of the soil you took out to make the hole, allowing the leaves or green shoots of the plant to remain out in the open. Then firm the soil around the base of the plant with your hands.
When we deliver
We deliver these veg patches from September until mid/late October, depending upon the season. It is a little tricky for us to give a specific date as we do not use any artificial heat to raise our plants, so we are a little dependant on the weather.
You can order from…
These veg patches are available to be ordered from August through to mid/late October (please note, they will be dispatched in Sept/Oct)
Do I need to sign for them?
All our plant orders are dispatched with an overnight courier* to mainland UK and do not need to be signed for when they are delivered, but will be left somewhere safe. When placing your order, please let us know where you would like the plants left if you are not in when the courier delivers.
We will keep you posted
You will receive an email a few days before your order is dispatched and another on the day your plants are packed and leave us so you know to expect and prepare for their arrival.
