Celosia Kimono – try something a little different! Celosia produce unusual feathery plumes of bright flowers. Weather resistant plants, perfect for containers, but equally useful for mass plantings. Celosia prefer full sun. Water regularly during dry periods but don't over water! The soil should drain well. Add a general purpose fertiliser every six weeks. To produce more plumes, pinch back the first one. While you may be anxious for those first bright blooms, this will promote more branching and reward you later.
You will receive a tray of 40 premium quality professionally produced young plug plants. All orders are carefully packed and shipped in our specially designed packaging. Plant your plug plants into 10cm pots or trays and grow on with cold weather protection, then plant out once the danger of frost has passed.

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.
General Growing Advice
Using a good quality multi-purpose compost, pot up your plugs into 10cm pots. 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 40/20 plug plants gently remove the small plugs from the tray by pushing up from the bottom using a pencil.
Celosia prefer full sun and produce an impressive display throughout the summer months.
Water regularly during dry periods but don't over water! The soil should drain well.
Add a general-purpose fertiliser every six weeks.
*Brookside Nursery Top Tip - To produce more plumes, pinch back the first one. Whilst you may be anxious for those first bright blooms, this will promote a more branching habit and more flowers so will reward you later.
Wonderful system very impressed, unfortunately when the plants arrived at least half of them were damaged in transit due to insufficient packaging. So only salvaged twenty three out of forty. Very pleased with the ones that survived.
We are sorry to hear the plants had a rough transit and have now emailed you to see if we can help further.
received excellent condition
The plants arrived as promised and also good communication was sent before hand. The plants all arrived in good condition and are doing well now they are potted on.
Arrived in good condition, seem to be growing well.
Package arrived extremely well packed and plants were in good condition considering their journey. Definitely would purchase from here again.
yes 4 star this time as it was my first order - had to phone in because plants did not come when it was said but understand part reason = plants themselves I found great so yes happy and will order again ( in fact have done so already ) TERRY .
Although this is a negative review, this is entirely due to the late delivery by Royal Mail. Understandable under the present circumstances. The plants arrived in a poor state at least a third were wizzen and although potted up are unlikely to survive. The nicotania were leggy but most seem to be o.k. As i say this is not a complaint just down to circumstances. I have always found Brookside to be efficient and I will carry on using them.
I PURCHASED THESE LAST YEAR FOR THE FIRST TIME. HAD SEEN IN GARDEN CENTRES IN PAST BUT SEEM TO HAVE FALLEN OUT OF FAVOUR UNTIL RECENTLY. THE FLOWERY TUFTS WERE HUGE, BUT I`VE NEVER SEEN THEM BRANCH OUT INTO SUCH LARGE BUSHY PLANTS. SEEM TO THRIVE BETTER GROWN ON IN SLIGHTLY LARGER POTS I ASSUME NOT HAPPY TO HAVE RESTRICTED ROOTS. GREAT FOR ANY POT OR GARDEN
