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. For best results feed fortnightly with a high-potash fertiliser to prolong flowering such as Miracle-Gro Slow Release All Purpose Plant Food 1KG.
My plants arrived very healthy looking. I am following instructions very carefully but as it is only a short time since I received them they are still small a d have ot been transplanted outside yet.
Healthy plants. They are looking great and have some flowers already.
I have been a customer of Brookside Nursery for several years.This year I have received the BEST plants I have ever had. They are bushy with plenty of leaves and look so very healthy. They are growing on very well and I am delighted with my purchase. I am so looking forward to planting them out and then enjoying the months of flowering I shall be able to enjoy.
Large well-rooted plants, beautiful leaf colours. One has a flower bud in gorgeous peachy orange.
For the 3rd year I have ordered my summer plug plants from Brookside Nursery. The plants are always of high quality and grow on well. There's no exception this year; just a very slight delay to the delivery due to Covid-19. Super quality; super service. Thank you. *****
Well rooted little plugs, but not really large. I have potted them on, but they are being slow to grow away at present.These arrived promptly and substantially packed, but as they are soft leaf were a little battered in transit, but should recover well.
These plants arrived in excellent condition. They were well packaged, on time and healthy. All plants were of very good quality and are thriving. Very impressed with the service and produce of Brookside Nursery much better than many of the more 'well known' companies.
Begonia glowing embers plants arrived in excellent condition and at the time I requested.It is very handy being able to select the delevery date, other suppliers should take note of this though I doubt if they could match the quality of the plantsI will certainly be using Brookside for my future orders
It really does make our day to hear off happy customers. Thank you for your review and we look forward to hearing from you again.
