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 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.
Plugs arrived in excellent condition. First time I have ordered plants on line, and I will definitely be doing it again using Brookside
As per usual fantastic service from Brookside nursery. Super little plants and so easy to order!My only complaint was the state the box arrived in, same with the marigolds I ordered. They had been squashed on one side resulting in the loss of 9 asters and 5 marigolds. Posts fault not the nursery. It is irritating when packed well.
Received fresh and healthy
Great healthy plugs,arrived well packed and on time. Will be ordering more plants over the next few weeks.
Plants were very healthy and some cells had two seedlings in them which is a bonus. Packaging great as always
