Pot Ready, Large, Healthy plants individually rooted in large plugs of compost. Ideal for planting into baskets, containers or small areas in the garden. Best results achieved if grown on for a short while in 9cm/10cm pots prior to planting out if planting straight into garden borders. Tender varieties will need protecting from frost. Compost volume around 4-5cm deep x 3-4cm square. Foliage height 5cm-12cm (depending on variety). Full growing instructions are provided.
Essential flowers, generally used as ‘filler ins’ to bulk out hanging baskets, are easy to grow but are worth taking care of as they will give months of colour and form to your hanging baskets and containers. Our selections of these pretty plants are tried and tested for health, vigour and longevity and come in varied colours from whites, yellows, pinks, reds, purples and blues, so you can accessorize your basket!
Coming to you as large plug plants, all these plugs will all benefit from being potted on as soon as you can, to give them a chance to produce strong bushy growth before planting into their final positions after the risk of frost has passed in your area.
The plants do not need pinching out at all unless you want to restrict their growth.
***Water every day especially in hot weather to ensure the roots do not become dry.
General Growing Advice
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.
Lovely colour, robust plants & have all grown on nicely & already in place outside.

Super healthy, flowering in no time
Lovely healthy plants & delivery was prompt with delivery tracking given. Brookside plants are always of great quality & these Bacopa lovely & healthy. I would highly recommend Brookside.
Part of a larger order - all plants were healthy and well grown.
I purchase hundreds of plants per year, Brookside quality is consistently good, sadly I left ordering too late this year to get most of what I wanted

Top class plants and service as usual. Sturdy, robust plugs which are now happily growing on after being transplanted. Very satisfied customer.
Strong healthy plants
Received these very well packaged and nice and damp. Had a question re condition as they were much smaller and leaves marked when compared to the white doubles received at the same time. My enquiry was very quickly answered. They were potted up immediately and hope they will quickly look as happy as the white version.
