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.
Petchoa Specific Advice
Deadhead Petchoas regularly to encourage more new flowers. It is quite easy to just pull off the faded flowers, but you need to snap off the developing seed pod too so take off the stem just behind the flower using your fingers or a pair of tiny scissors.
General Growing Advice
Using a good quality multi-purpose compost, pot up your plugs into 10cm pots or use the 6 Pack Cell Plant Trays. Once your Calibrachoa plug plants have been potted on and labelled, water them in well and grow on for 5-6 weeks.
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 or use our Organic range of feed Neudorff Organic Multi Purpose Plant Feed 1L Concentrate.
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.
The plugs arrived beautifully packed but unfortunately I think they suffered from the heat in transit.They were very yellow when they arrived so as advised I gave them a long drink and time to readjust.I haven't lost any of the plants but they are not particularly strong. I would order from Brookside Nursery again as I think the weather was excessively hot so the nursery weren't to blame.

Five large plug plants arrived in very good condition the day after they were despatched and are all growing on well.
Excellent packaging. Beautiful plants. I have been buying plants from this company for several years and have never had any problems The service they give is second to none. Well done Brookside. Keep the good work up.
This year I purchased some Petchoa plants and am looking forward a 'colourful' summer, potting them together with Osteospermum , diascia, and nemesiaThey were packaged with the love, care and service that I have become accustomed to from Brookside arriving on the week requested . Thank you.
I have not grown Petchoa's before, although I've only had the plugs a week they are already showing signs of 'branching'.
