Vietnamese Cilantro Plug Tray, a division of Mountain Valley Growers, Inc., offers trays of small plants for economical planting. Each tray contains 128 plugs that are approximately 3/4 of an inch in diameter and one inch in depth. Each plug cost between .75 and 1.00. We only charge you for 120 plugs to accommodate any problems we can't see.  All plants are certified organic.

The wide variety of plants that are offered  include culinary herbs, ground covers and bushes. Lavenders and creeping thymes are some of the most popular but unusual herbs like Lemon Verbena and Greek Bay are also available.


Most of our plug trays are started from cuttings that are taken from larger plants. This cloning insures that we provide you with the proper variety. Cuttings are taken when the time is right to cut each plant. This could be once a year or several times a year. Therefore, different plug trays are available at different times throughout the year.

Larger certified organic plants in three-inch pots can be ordered at Mountain Valley Growers.

It is important to make sure plants do not sit in the sun while you are away. We supply a UPS tracking number so you know when your box should arrive. We also do not guarantee packages that are shipped to a wrong address provided by you. The address we use is taken directly from the order you place. Take a moment to make sure it is correct. If you incorrectly enter your address and UPS has to change it, they will charge us, which we will pass on to you. If UPS is unable to deliver your box due to a mistake in the address, the box will be returned to us and the plants will be dead. We will not refund or replace plants under these conditions.


Plug Trays should be unpacked promptly upon arrival, set outside and watered. They can then be planted directly into moist ground. These small plant dry out quickly and should be checked often to insure the plug's root ball remains moist. It can take a month for a new plant to become established into the soil around it. Until this happens the plant can only use the moisture in the root ball. If the ground around the root ball dries out, the dry ground will take the moisture from the root ball. Once the small plant puts roots out into the soil around it, the moisture and nutrients from the ground becomes available to it.

If you are trying to plant in the heat of summer, watering may need to be more often than you think. Physically check the soil often during the day to make sure they are not drying out.

If plug trays are held for a time, make sure they stay watered.

Plugs can also be repotted into three to four inch pots for growing on to sell or hold until a convenient planting time.
