The most economical way to purchase your plants. Securely rooted, strong plants in mini-plugs of compost. Will need to be transplanted and grown on before planting out ready to flower. Tender varieties will need protecting from frost. Compost volume around 2.6cm deep x 1.8cm square. Foliage height 1.5cm-5cm (depending on variety). Full growing instructions are provided.
General Growing Advice
Using a good quality multi-purpose compost, pot up your plugs into 10cm pots. Once your plug plants have been potted on and labelled, water them in well and grow on for around 5-6 weeks. Water once the compost starts to dry out but remember, Begonias generally will not thrive if overwatered, so it’s worth keeping an eye on them.
If preferred you can pot on the plugs into hanging baskets, flower bags or pots. Add a slow release plant food like Miracle-Gro Slow Release All Purpose Plant Food to your compost which will give extra nutrients for strong and healthy plant growth.
Keep plants frost free until mid/late May and then harden off before being placed in their final positions when the risk of frost has passed in your area.
Water as necessary giving a liquid feed such as Neudorff Organic Plant Feed as instructed throughout the growing season.
***For packs of 40 plug plants gently remove the small plugs from the tray by pushing up from the bottom using a pencil.
Ageratum Specific Advice
Ageratums are generally very easy to grow.
To keep ageratums blooming, regularly dead head the spent blooms.
Watering regularly until ageratum plants are fully established.
Received my plug plants this week and they were well packaged, on time and I followed the instructions prior to planting up. All my plants were in excellent condition. I have already placed my autumn order.
Well packed and delivery time was bang on very healthy little plants thank you.
Excellent service from brookside
Excellent quality plants,excellent service.
This is intended only as a suggestion, not a complaint.The plants arrived within the promised time and appear to be healthy.However the external packaging had no indication of the correct orientation of the box. The address label was on the side but both myself and the postman assumed that was the top but the box was on it's side.Why put 'this way up' arrows on the box but not duplicate it on the external packaging?There is a label indicating 'plants, handle with care' why not print orientation arrows on that.
Thank you so much for your comments, we will certainly take note of this. Your feedback is very much appreciated.
Lovely healthy plants, which arrived very quickly the day after dispatch. Being able to choose a specific week of dispatch is excellent & something I haven't seen offered anywhere else.Quality plants & highly recommended.
Thank you so much for your review and kind words. Happy Gardening !
