Size guide - Tray of 40 Plug Plants 

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.  Once your Begonia 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.

Usual good quality from Brookside, healthy strong plants. We have grown on in greenhouse for 6 weeks and have garden centre quality plants at a fraction of the cost.

Plug plants arrived extremely well packaged. All plants were nice and moist, very healthy, a good size (bigger than any plug plants I’ve ordered from other companies in the past) and all lifted easily and cleanly from the cells. Have potted on and every plant is growing well, not one loss. Will definitely order from Brookside again - the added bonus being able to book a specific week for delivery.

Very disappointing. We followed the guidelines for planting but within two days of receipt they started to shrivel and fall apart.the petunias were excellent and are growing in leaps and bounds.
