Succeed Heirlooms also sells a small range of live perennial vegetable and herb plants, these are generally species that are difficult or slow to grow from seed. These plants are grown from cuttings planted into compost filled 50mm square forestry tubes. The size of the shoots may vary depending on how long they've been growing but all plants sold will have a well developed root system and be ready to grow quickly once planted into your garden. Plants will be well-packed but may experience a slight yellowing due to the lack of light during postage, they will recover in a few days once exposed to light again. Please note that adding any live plants to your cart will increase your flat-rate postage cost from $2.50 to $8.00, as the live plants need to be sent as a parcel.
