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.
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.
Cosmos Specific Advice
Regular deadheading of cosmos will encourage and prolong more blooms. If deadheads remain then the cosmos will self-seed. Do not over fertilise as this will promote more foliage growth rather than more flowers. Pinching out the tips at around 15-20cm will encourage bushier plants.
All the plants were very dry and yellow. I think they were delayed n the post. I am trying to save them but quite disappointed I have had plants from you before and all was fine. I understand difficult circumstances at the moment and hopefully some of them will recover.
Thank you for your review. We apologise that they arrived in this condition. Please do keep in touch on their progress.
4 plants were what my mum would call leggy. One plant was nearly dead, not sure if it will survive, very sad but think this is as a result possibly of Lockdown and not as many people at work to care for them. Usually plants from Brookside are very good.
Plants should recover after potting on , but were in a poor condition when they arrived.
plants arrived on time and in very good condition , they have now been potted on and are growing well in my greenhouse waiting till the risk of frost is over then they will go outside in their final position
Good quality plants that I'm sure will bring lots of pleasure this summer.Excellent service - will be ordering again
Very small plants, quite dissapointed!!
