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.
Using a good quality multi-purpose compost, pot up your plugs into 10cm pots or 6 cell trays. 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.
My plants arrived on time and were well packaged and of excellent and healthy quality. Thank you Brookside Nursery for you wonderful service.

Plug plants potted into the hanging baskets and stored in the greenhouse. Plants growing well and giving a stunning display
Excellent plants that are growing on well.
Perfect plugs that all grew on to be beautiful plants - very pleased
Again great plants and so far on can be planted straight into baskets, will use again next year
These were part of a larger order of plug plants. All the plants received were in excellent condition and having been potted up, are growing on well in my greenhouse. I wouldnt hesitate to order from Brookside Nursery again.
I tried these in 2018 and would definitely recommend. Lots of visitors remarked how stunning they are.
