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.
Essential flowers, generally used as ‘filler ins’ to bulk out hanging baskets, are easy to grow but are worth taking care of as they will give months of colour and form to your hanging baskets and containers. Our selections of these pretty plants are tried and tested for health, vigour and longevity and come in varied colours from whites, yellows, pinks, reds, purples and blues, so you can accessorize your basket!
Coming to you as large plug plants, all these plugs will all benefit from being potted on as soon as you can, to give them a chance to produce strong bushy growth before planting into their final positions after the risk of frost has passed in your area.
The plants do not need pinching out at all unless you want to restrict their growth.
***Water every day especially in hot weather to ensure the roots do not become dry.
General Growing Advice
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.
Lovely plugs with well established roots and good top growth, well packed and arrived the next day. I potted them on, although they didn't really need it, as the beds weren't ready for them. They've grown on well and will be planted out in the next few days. Another good purchase, thank you Brookside!
Arrived in excellent condition, your packaging is first class. I had an email from you on 7 June saying they had been dispatched and they arrived by Royal Mail the next day. Will definitely use your company again and would recommend to other gardeners.
Excellent quality plants, well packaged and delivered on time. Will definitely only be ordering my plants from Brookside Nursery in the future,
All plants were very healthy when arrived. Very happy
The plants are lovely I’m very pleased and I will definitely order again
Good plants but not indigo blue? More like pink
Arrived in good condition. Plants are putting on new growth and so far are withstanding the very cold weather. They are potted up and protected by 2 layers of fleece in an unheated polytunnel.
We have used this company for a few years now. They always keep you informed of delivery. Delivery always on time and plants arrive in excellent condition. We have no complaints over the 5 years we have used them.
Unfortunately, due to the corona virus, all my order (for bacopa, calibrachoa, fuschias & geranium) all came very late in May, they were rather stunted and have still not recovered two weeks later. I have had to go out to a garden centre to replace some as my baskets are rather bare.
Thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear the plugs were stunted and have emailed you to see if we can assist further.
Arrived well packaged healthy plugs which have planted on really well only been few weeks but they are doing really well
