Size guide - Pack of 3 Large Plug Plants 

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.

Perennial plants come in hundreds, if not thousands, of varying shapes, sizes and colours and if you are like me, you will always find room for one more in your garden!  They are reliable, hardy plants that breathe life into beds and borders from late spring to late autumn and beyond. These plants are also very attractive to pollinating bees, butterflies and beneficial insects.

  •  Your plugs will benefit from being grown on in large pots, approx. 5 - 10Ltr size.
  • Give them a good soak in tepid water to ensure the roots get a thorough soak.
  • Plant into a good quality multi-purpose compost and water them in.  Pop a label in the pot to remind you what it is.
  • Plant out into the final planting positions after a few weeks when the risk of frost has passed in your area. 
  • Planting in groups of 3’s or 5’s will give a good clump of colour as the plants mature.
  • A good spadeful of organic matter popped into the planting hole will get your plants off to really good start.
  • Give them a good drink of water and water regularly during their first year’s growth and feed with a sprinkling of granular slow release fertiliser.

*With a little planning you can have perennial plants in flower for several months of the year - almost all year round in milder areas.

My first time ordering from here but it won’t be the last. The plugs I ordered (3x Amistad and 3x Black and Bloom) came exactly when advised, despite the current situation, and were of exceptional quality. They were well packaged, with a good root ball and very crisp and healthy top growth. They can’t fail to do well! They put to shame some of the bigger companies selling plug plants.

These are very large plug plants with well established roots and good top growth. Having potted them up a few days ago, they're already growing on well. And, most importantly, a huge "thank you" to all at Brookside Nursery for continuing to provide a fantastic service despite all the current madness. Definitely 5 gold stars all round!

I love this Salvia, though I have found it not that reliable over winter so I always treat it as an annual. The plugs from Brookside are a really good size and since this is a fast grower - by July it is usually flowering and continues to do so till the first frosts.
