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 or use the 6 Pack Cell Plant Trays. Once your Geranium plug plants have been potted on and labelled, water them in well and grow on for 5-6 weeks.
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.
Brookside Nursery Top Tip – Pinching out the first flower buds will ensure that the plant will put its energies into a good root system and foliage growth which will result in a stronger, bushier plant with more flowers.
*** For packs of 40 plug plants gently remove the small plugs from the tray by pushing up from the bottom using a pencil.

Thank you for your feedback. We are thrilled to hear that you are so pleased with your plants.
I've been buying plug plants online for about 15 years now, but this is the first time I've come across Brookside Nursery. I have just received my order of 9 different trays of plug plants, and I couldn't be more delighted. The quality of all of the plants is far, far better than any of the major online competitors. Every plant is strong, healthy, and much larger than the plugs I usually buy. The packaging was excellent, email communication was perfect, and the customer service was extremely helpful when I rang to make an adjustment to my order. On top of all this, the plants were all extremely competitively priced. I will definitely be back next year. Thank you for such perfect service.
