Superb variety of Snap Dragons. Fragrant and attractive to butterflies.
This is a superb variety of Antirrhinum. These Snap Dragon plug plants produce strong plants, which are early to flower. They'll soon become smothered in masses of trumpet shaped blooms and will flower all summer. Equally at home in a patio container as well as the more traditional border plantings. Snaps have a degree of cold tolerance and can be planted out earlier than some of the more tender varieties of bedding plants.
You will receive a tray of 40 premium quality professionally produced young plug plants. All orders are carefully packed and shipped in our specially designed packaging. Plant your plug plants into 10cm pots or trays and grow on with cold weather protection, then plant out once the danger of frost has passed. Full variety specific growing instructions are sent out with every order.

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.
Using a good quality multi-purpose compost, pot up your plugs into 10cm pots or 6 cell trays. 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.
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 20/40 plug plants gently remove the small plugs from the tray by pushing up from the bottom using a pencil.
Having been very disappointed by another company I thought I would try a little nearer home and have to say I was very pleased not only with the quality but also with the way the plants were packaged and the speedy delivery despite the current situation. Will definitely be ordering again.

Plants arrived on time very well packed. Now in pots growing nicely. Would definitely order again from Brookside
Lovely healthy looking little plants.
These arrived on time, but were very small still too small to put out. I feel it is very late to be sending plants out this small at the end of may. I do however understand the situation with the coronavirus.
Wasnt expecting them to be so small but transferred them immediately into two seed trays and popped them into the pop up greenhouse which I opened up every day.They have come on in leaps and bounds.Its a joy watching them grow as usually I buy plants ready to plant out.Many thanks especially during this trying time.
poor quality plants. very small plugs (not what I was expecting). many of them crushed, squashed, tops missing, poor roots. potted on what we could but ended up with no where near 40 plants in the end. very disappointing as i'd bought these for a friend. very poor quality compared to other suppliers ive used this year
Thank you very much for a great service.
Plants arrived in great condition and have grown and developed well.
