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 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.
I’m so pleased the health quality and size of all the plug plants I have had delivered. They have potted on well and we look forward to bright colourful blooms this summer. The services from Brookside has been wonderful delivered on time plants well protected, clear instructions how to look after them. I would defiantly recommend and use Brookside again.

Really growing well, very sturdy and making good plants in a short time.
Through the years I have had excellent quality plants from Brookside, however as part of my last order which was re scheduled twice, the quality of these dahlia was very poor , out of 40 ordered 27 arrived, some others were dead and some plugs completely missing.
Ordered as part of a bigger order of seven sets of plug plants. Delivery was when Brookside said it would be delivered and the plants were all in excellent condition. Hard work re-potting but, already, within a week, the plants are all showing signs of further healthy growth.
I discovered Brookside Nursery approximately 3 yrs ago, and I have always been pleased with the size and quaulity of the plants
Some of the cells had 2 plants so I ended up with over 50 plants. All growing on in the greenhouse.
Once again my order arrived quickly with all the plugs in great condition all 500 plus of different plants now nestled in greenhouse looking forward to another summer display
Arrived in very good condition, impressed with the development of roots and growth supplied, far outstrips other well known suppliers, definitely recommend Brookside to other growers along with a great service from staff.
The plants are fantastic. Healthy and strong and the best you can buy!I've had ~600 plug plants this year, various types and all are furiously growing in the greenhouse!I buy only from Brookside Nursery, no-one can supply better.Thank you, all at the nursery.NickyC
