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.

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.

Damaged goods and not as advertised
Thursday, 8 April 2021  | 

Very badly packaged 1/4 of seedlings were beyond rescue and the remaining 3/4 are struggling to recover. Advertised as plug plants but they were so small I can only describe them as seedlings. I will never purchase from this company again. I have purchased plants etc many times this is the worse purchase I have ever received.

Slightly disappointed
Thursday, 8 April 2021  | 

I was really looking forward to receive my plugs, sadly none of the Dahlia survived and 8 of the Gerbera are doing ok...I’ve put it down to transport & potting on....or maybe it’s just bad luck ☘️
I have placed another order for some Gazania so will wait and see what happens with those fingers crossed 🤞

Plants were badly treated during transit, I lost nearly 50% of my order. I don't doubt they left you OK but they looked like they had been in a road accident when I got them. Very disappointed.

Quality healthy plants
Monday, 18 May 2020  | 

I’m so pleased the health quality and size of all the plug plants I have had delivered. They have potted on well and we look forward to bright colourful blooms this summer. The services from Brookside has been wonderful delivered on time plants well protected, clear instructions how to look after them. I would defiantly recommend and use Brookside again.

Later than expected and half missing
Monday, 4 May 2020  | 

Through the years I have had excellent quality plants from Brookside, however as part of my last order which was re scheduled twice, the quality of these dahlia was very poor , out of 40 ordered 27 arrived, some others were dead and some plugs completely missing.

Dahlia Diablo Mixed

Ordered as part of a bigger order of seven sets of plug plants. Delivery was when Brookside said it would be delivered and the plants were all in excellent condition. Hard work re-potting but, already, within a week, the plants are all showing signs of further healthy growth.
