Our ground cover plants make an excellent way of reducing maintenance without compromising on colour and interest, we have varieties suitable for all garden situatons from dense shade to full sun. Planting distances are a matter of personal preference but as a rough guide - 4 plants per square metre is adequate if you are patient, 6 plants per square metre will give better coverage and 9-12 plants per square metre will make a weed supressing carpet very quickly.

All of our ground cover plants are sold as strong stocky plants in 6 inch 1.5 litre pots not tiny plugs or 9cm pots and make an excellent starting point, if you need a lot of plants we offer all varieties in dicounted free delivery pallet deals.
