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 9 cell trays. 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.

These lobelia plugs were raring to go! I replanted them in a large tray and they started growing immediately. I will be planting them out as soon as the weather gets a bit warmer. I'll definitely be ordering these again next year - they are such good value for money.
This has been my first purchase from Brookside and i am very impressed with both the service and quality of plants. Very well packaged and healthy plugs. Highly recommended and I shall be placing orders for next years floral displays to hopefully win the competitions for the 4th year running
Plug plants growing well, looking forward to seeing them flower
Like the other plants in my order these arrived securely packed and in good condition. They have been potted on into cell trays and placed in my lean-to, wall greenhouses until such time as it is safe to plant them out into window boxes and hanging baskets. I have been shopping with Brookside for a number of years now and have never found reason to complain. The plants always arrive when expected and are always strong and healthy-looking.
Great plants which were well boxed and even after departing the Nursery on a Tuesday and not arriving until Saturday all plugs were still wet and survived the journey - all potted up as advised and looking well. Thanks to you and your team for a great service during such difficult times we are in. Having plants to tend and nurture in the coming weeks and months will help ease our psychological needs and we can enjoy the beauty the plants will give us when they are in full bloom in our gardens. Well done and thanks to all at Brookside Nursery.
