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.
*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.
I thought I would try this the plants as always look really good all I need is the weather to warm a little to plant out
