Size guide - Tray of 40 Plug Plants 

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.  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.

***For packs of 40 plug plants gently remove the small plugs from the tray by pushing up from the bottom using a pencil.

I collected the begonia plugs from the nursery, acclimatised in the unheated greenhouse before transplanting into Roottrainers. They are starting to grow away and no losses! Hopefully Spring will arrive and I can get them out before June arrives!

A Tale of two Halves
Monday, 3 May 2021  | 

I ordered two packs, one was excellent with healthy plugs which have transplanted and grown well. The second had quite a few plugs with damaged and mildewed leaves. I removed the mildewed leaves and potted all the plugs up. All put two eventually made it although the damaged ones are still behind the others in growth and all the second pack are behind the first. All were well protected by their packing and I put the problem down to the poor spring as usually all plants from Brookside are good.

The plants arrived the day after they were posted, via Royal Mail. They were in great condition and quite large for ordinary plug plants. The packaging was excellent, much superior to other mail order firms I have used.
