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.
Maintain a just compost, drying out will cause flower abortion, while wet compost will cause the plant to stretch and reduce flowering. Plants require good light but shade lightly on very bright days to keep flowers above the foliage and prevent leaf burn. Space plants well in their growing environment to avoid stretching.
Good hygiene should be maintained throughout the growing phase. Try not to get the compost too wet and allow the plants as much light as possible. Maintain temperature levels and avoid leaving plants wet late in the day to prevent growth tip abortion. Gradually acclimatise plants to the outside conditions by placing in a sheltered place during the day and bring them back inside at night. Watch out for cold winds as well as pets, birds, mice etc. After all risk of frost has passed they can be left out or planted into their final flowering position for you to enjoy.
Impatiens grow well in semi-shade and make excellent long-lasting summer colour plants in tubs, pots, baskets, pouches as well as beds and borders. They make very good all year round house plants and can be over wintered in a cool room indoors or a frost free greenhouse. Regular feeding about once a week will ensure blooms all summer.
Pest and disease: Keep a eye out for greenfly, Whitefly, Red Spider Mite (Two spotted Mite) and other pests. If they become a problem, use a recommended proprietary brand of insecticide. Botrytis (grey mould) may affect the flower buds and cause them to drop, so try to avoid watering from above and increase the ventilation. Pick off any badly affected flowers and spray with a recommended proprietary
brand of fungicide. Don't forget to deadhead and remove any damaged flowers or leaves. Deadheading will promote more flowers and help reduce the spread of any pests or disease.
Very pleased with these healthy plants that have arrived in great condition. The packing was the best I have encountered with a plastic pack within its own little box within the main box. I hope they will continue to grow well and avoid the dreaded mildew

My tiny plants arrived safely on the due date. All were in excellent condition, no mean feat as I had ordered 120!I have been buying from Brookside for several years now and can honestly say that I would not buy from any other supplier. I like the fact you can chose which week the plants will arrive, the prices are competative and the plants are ALWAYS strong and healthy. I would thoroughly recommendBrookside to all garden lovers.
Despite all the info. flying around with regards to powdery mildew. TI have purchased this product for many tears and have never had any trouble. Keeping the plants fed at the right time and not over watering is all they require. Last year they were amazing I had two large pots that only had two plants each in and were full and hanging over with all these beautiful semi- double flowers. Would recommend to anyone.
