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.
These arrived on time but the plants were too big for the little plugs it took a week to bring them round I think I have recovered about 20 but once again I understand the situation was very difficult with the coronavirus. I wouldnt however order anything to be delivered at the end of may. As a company you did what you said and delivered well packed on the date you said.

I felt disappointed when the Nemesia arrived.They were yellow and weak looking.I have planted them directly in the garden and most have taken however they are slow growing. The service was welcome in time of lockdown but it's not an ideal way of buying plants.
I ordered plugs plants earlier in the year which were excellent so was really disappointed by the quality of this latest order. Both the Nemesia and the Phlox were very straggly and dry. This may have been due to the Royal Mail storage as the weather was particularly hot during the days of delivery. I also ordered Helenium Root Plant which although was damp was very soft and has not survived despite following your growing instructions
Review too early - 2 weeks from delivery. Despatched as advertised . Well packed and all healthy on arrival. Have just planted out but cannot really tell until I see the finished product which will be a few weeks away.
Arrived very battered. Rescued about half and those have grown on well. Brookside have not been good enough this year (2020). Maybe the Coronavirus has made things difficult, but some of my plants (coleus) never arrived, some were sent the wrong week and some have been in poor condition. Petunias, however, have been excellent.
Always good from Brookside but lost a star because the plants had outgrown their plugs and are taking some time to recover.
Nemesia are always great plants for summer long colour, and what is more they tend to self seed quite well.As always Brookside are to be congratulated on the quality of their plants, their prompt delivery even in these hard times, and their superb packaging of the goods, which arrive in excellent condition.
Arrived on due delivery date, all well packed and in excellent condition. All the other items were of similar high standard. Good healthy looking plants, very pleased. Will not be writing a separate review for the remainder of the order, as it was all very good. Would use again.
The plants had completely dried out by the time they arrived and I have only been able to save just 15 out of the tray of 40
Plants arrived on time in excellent condition. Looking forward to seeing the display later this year
