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 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.
As with most dahlias, they will thrive in moist, well-drained soil in full sun. Deadheading regularly once the flowers fade will prolong the flowering season.
Tie in the main stem of each Dahlia regularly to the stake. This will keep the growth upright and prevent any wind damage that could snap the stems.
Similar to the rest of the plants in my order, these were all of A1 quality and the packaging was first class.
Really healthy little plug plants, arrived very quickly after dispatch, planted into pots on day of arrival and within two weeks they have flower buds. I look forward to planting them out once they are hardened off and enjoying their colours in the Summer.
After trying various other online nurseries, and being very disappointed, I turned to Brookside. I ordered Dahlia Surprise Cindy & the Happy Days, Pink, Red, Yellow & Red/Yellow collection.The plants duly arrived, and I was immensely impressed with the attention of care in the packaging methods, and the sheer top quality of the plants, non of which showed any signs of damage - not even a bruised leaf! I also ordered 2 Shasta Daisy ,which were received in the same perfect condition.So, and in my honest opinion, I would label Brookside as the place to go.
These plants arrived in a very healthy condition and were very well packed. I'm looking forward to planting them up and enjoying their colour over the next few months.
Arrived on time, still growing on and very happy with their progress
Plants arrived in excellent condition. Now otter on and growing well.
Arrived safely in good condition
Superb quality arrived in tip-top condition & on time.
Received these plugs a month ago. They were transplanted into the baskets and sheltered in the greenhouse until last week. They have produced some absolutely stunning flowers.
