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.

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.

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 Advice

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.

Lovely healthy plug plants
Friday, 9 July 2021  | 

I received really healthy plug plants and I’m excited for these celosia kimono mixed plants to flower. They are budding now so hopefully flower soon!
I have ordered from you guys for a couple of years now and I won’t be ordering plug plants from anywhere else! In fact, I think I’ll be getting the Halloween orange and black violas as I think they will look amazing!
Thank you TeamBrookdide!
Till my next order!

Hi,
All plants in good condition with the exception of the celosia, where 40% were lost behond repair, maybe it was the time in the post that didn't help (5 day's), anyway the remainder of the plants are growing away nicely. Yes i am very happy with the service and quality of your plants and shall return for more in the not too distant future.

Best Regards,

Peter Auty

I have ordered these plants from other suppliers over the years without success I thought ordering from Brookside they would be better.Sadly this was not to be.Maybe they just do not travel well All other plants from this company were perfect..

Bad packaging
Monday, 5 April 2021  | 

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.


Response:

We are sorry to hear the plants had a rough transit and have now emailed you to see if we can help further.
