Note: Plant plugs are baby plants. Plug plants have a soil root base of roughly 5" deep x 2" square with varying above ground growth -- a plug is the best size to plant with habitat gardening. Plant plugs are better adapted to being planted in a new garden and will grow-in healthier then larger plant sizes. And small plugs are easier & quicker for you to plant!
