Plug Arrival: Best Time to Plant Your Plugs


posted on March 11th, 2010 by

Not surprisingly, the best time to plant your Amazoy Zoysia plugs is the same day they arrive to you. The plugs are living plants, so the sooner you plant them, the better. However, if you are unable to plant your Zoysia plugs right away, here are a few tips to keep them healthy until you can plant them.

1. Take the plugs out of the box and their plastic packaging.
2. Lay the plugs on a flat surface with the grass side facing up.
3. Keep your plugs in an area that does not get direct sunlight.
4. Keep your plugs well misted, about once a day, with water.

If you follow these four tips, you will have about two to three weeks to get them into your soil. Planting instructions are included in every order, or you can check out planting instructions here.

    I know that the subject of my question cannot be recommended for your product, but I would like to know if Zoysia can be transplanted in the winter.
    I have had great success in transplanting common bermuda in the winter with virtually no failures, and I wondered if that had been tried with Zoysia. The advantages of winter transplants are easier digging, cooler working conditions, and almost no watering.
    I haven’t tried to transplant Zoysia, but I’m thinking about it. I would appreciate your comments.

    Dear Grass Folks,
    I planted my whole yeard last spring with Z52. Used your fertilizer in late May and late June. With all of the weeds now dead and gone, I can see where I planted every plug. There was virtually NO spreading of the plugs. I’m hoping like heck they spent June thru mid November growing roots, ’cause I have nothing on top to prove there was any growth. I really don’t want to pull up even one plug to look and see if it’s putting on new roots. Is what I’m seeing normal?

    Hey William – In the Philly area you can start planting in late March through September.

    Michael – Once your zoysia is established you’re fine to transplant zoysia plugs. You can transplant plugs from an established lawn up to two times a season, and it should still be able to “heal itself” within the same season.

    Arch – It takes two to three full growing seasons for Zoysia to fill in completely. This may sound like a lot, but it actually is part of Zoysia’s strength. In other words, yes this is perfectly normal! Great even! Here is another blog post we wrote explaining a bit more about what your grass is doing right now and why. Let us know if you still have any questions or issues.
