    Hi,

    Might be a daft questions, but I've been looking at the postplug plants online and as its a bit late in the season, how quick would they grow into a full plant? As an example, fuchsias and geraniums.

    Depending the plug size and plant, but usually, this time of year, Fuschia 5-6 weeks, geranium (pelargonium) 6-8 weeks, they will look like they are not doing very much for the1st 10 or so days, then they will start to move.

      Things move rapidly at this time of the year.

      Thanks for this, as I wasn't sure because I usually have all my plugs delivered April'ish

        Well garden centres are opening up so you could try them for slightly bigger plants, if you can get there.:biggrin:
        I tried two local ones today and gave up, they were queueing in the roads to get in the carpark of one.
        Think I'll wait until the initial rush has died down.
