Size guide - Tray of 84 Large Plug Plants 

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.

I purchased my garden plants and bulbs from Brookside for the second year running, I was impressed with the quality and service and the prompt delivery of my order. I had a lovely display of flowers last year and had no hesitation in ordering my plants again this year. This years results are once again a delight to see and the trailing begonias are in full bloom. I will have no hesitation in ordering again next year and would highly recommend Brookside to anyone looking for a reliable mail order nursery.

Approximately 10% of the plugs were noticeably smaller on delivery than the rest and unfortunately they did not grow on and died. The others are thriving and looking very good.

Quality quite variable on arrival some well established plugs but several undersized with under development of root system . 4 cells empty of plant . Five have failed after potting on. This is the only part of my order that has been a bit of a disappointment. All other varieties of bedding have arrived in fantastic condition , consistent size and development.
