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.
General Growing Advice
Using a good quality multi-purpose compost, pot up your plugs into 10cm pots. Once your Begonia 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 but remember, Begonias generally will not thrive if overwatered, so it’s worth keeping an eye on them.
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.
Begonia Specific Advice
Take care not to over water begonias, as this will cause new begonia flowers buds to drop. As with most bedding plants, begonias also benefit from regular deadheading of faded flowers to extend the flowering period and encourage more blooms to be produced.
I took delivery of some Begonia Brookside Appleblossom as part of an order of various begonia plants, and this would be the variety that I would least recommend. The plugs were good condition, but the plants have been very slow to grow compared to the other varieties and (in early July) are still quite small. I would note that the flowers are much darker than the pictures on the website, but the main problem is that they are all downward-facing. Coupled with the small plant size this means that the flowers are mostly "rubbing their faces in the dirt" and not displayed to any good effect. Consequently I would not recommend this particular begonia as a bedding plant or for containers, although it may be OK for hanging baskets.
Thank you for your review. We are sorry to read that you are disappointed with the performance of these plants and will certainly pass your feedback on.

I have been buying from various outlets over the years, and I am so happy to send a review of the plants I bought from Brookside Nursery this year. They are healthy, good looking plants and having potted them on, they are already starting to root in their 9cm pots. Can't wait to see the final result when they are in their containers for the summer . Many thanks and see you next year.
I have never been dissapointed with the plants that I have received from Brookside Nursery. This delivery is as expected. Ready to pot on amd look beautiful in the summer.
Potted up and hopeful of early blooms.
