Unrooted Cuttings – often abbreviated to URC – are harvested from a mother plant, which is normally produced from high health status stock to ensure optimum quality and health.
This is where high tech meets horticulture. Plants are grown on a jelly-like substance called agar in sterile laboratory conditions.
A plug is a rooted young plant in a 3.5cm cell, supplied in trays of 104 cells. We offer well-established plugs for all our URCs varieties plus many more.
Herbaceous perennials are defined by the fact that they die back to an underground root system to overwinter.

Eryngium ‘Magical Blue Globe’
Flowering without overwintering, this compact Eryngium forms a real globe of blue thistle flowers around 40-45cm tall. As with most Eryngiums, when the plant is overwintered you get more flowers, but even from an early spring potting you will still get a ball of blue in late July into August
The Eryngium plant has been chosen as Perennial Plant of the year in Germany in 2019. For the best flowering results next year, plant in Summer/Autumn 2018.
