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.
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 40/20 plug plants gently remove the small plugs from the tray by pushing up from the bottom using a pencil.
Celosia prefer full sun and produce an impressive display throughout the summer months.
Water regularly during dry periods but don't over water! The soil should drain well.
Add a general-purpose fertiliser every six weeks.
*Brookside Nursery Top Tip - To produce more plumes, pinch back the first one. Whilst you may be anxious for those first bright blooms, this will promote a more branching habit and more flowers so will reward you later.
