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 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.
Begonia Specific Advice
Take care not to over water begonias, as this will cause new begonia flowers buds to drop. As with most bedding plants, begonias also benefit from regular deadheading of faded flowers to extend the flowering period and encourage more blooms to be produced.
I have ordered plug plants before but NEVER from Brookside.The plants have always been dispatched in little plastic envelopes and they inevitable are squashed sad little things but the time they get to me. Brookside plants were packaged in strong little boxes inside a bigger strong box with extra padding so that the little boxes did not move around in transit subsequently the plants arrived in excellent condition. I have had full success with these plants, not one failure they are all superb.I will always now place my orders with Brookside.

Really pleased with quality of plants. They have doubled in size since we received them. We have never ordered online before but will do again, fantastic service
arrived ok, but these seem to be much smaller than last years plugs. still, some nurturing should see them grow. Tip for anyone else troubledby pesky slugs and snails, they don't seem to like these, so tend to leave them alone.
All 40 plugs growing on well.
Plants arrived on week ordered.All in perfect condition and potted on. Will not plant out until all chance of frosts are gone.Minus 3.2c last night which is not uncommon in this area for early May
This is the 2nd year I have purchased the plug plants from Brookside Nursery. The plants arrived on time, well packaged and very strong plants. Would highly recommend
