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 20/40 plug plants gently remove the small plugs from the tray by pushing up from the bottom using a pencil.

Cosmos Specific Advice

Regular deadheading of cosmos will encourage and prolong more blooms. If deadheads remain then the cosmos will self-seed. Do not over fertilise as this will promote more foliage growth rather than more flowers. Pinching out the tips at around 15-20cm will encourage bushier plants.

healthy plants
Tuesday, 4 May 2021  | 

plants arrived well packaged and were potted up straight away. They are growing on in the greenhouse but the weather is so variable they are taking longer to grow than normal, but that's not the fault of the nursery!
I have also bought similar products from another supplier as a comparison and will report back later on how they perform but to date very pleased with the Brookside plants and will certainly use again.

The plants arrived well packaged and in good condition. When potting up, you can see that most plants have a well developed root system. They are now doing well in a mini greenhouse.

Super strong little plants
Sunday, 18 April 2021  | 

I was a bit disappointed with the straggly and dry Apollo Lovesong variety which I had last year, though the 20 that survived were a picture. So I tried again with these and they all look great! I am hoping for a lovely show and a garden full of bees as they seem to love them. Thanks Brookside PS your compost is brilliant!
