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 fresh multi-purpose compost, plant each plug into a 13cm pot or similar. Water well and grow on for 3-4 weeks in a frost-free spot.  Harden off the plants (by bringing them outside during the daytime) before planting them out into their final flowering positions from May or when the last frosts have passed in your area.

Delphiniums need a fertile soil so ensure the ground has some well-rotted manure or compost incorporated into the soil.  
If your soil is on the heavy side, put some grit into the base of the planting hole.

*Slugs like to munch on young Delphinium leaves so some grit or copper rings around the plants. 
Delphiniums may need staking unless they are in a very sheltered position so put stakes in at the time of planting to steady them as they grow.

I got these much later than the others, but I'm not sure why. They were quite leggy and their roots were well intertwined. I think they could have been delivered a earlier

The plants are now growing strongly, but it didn't help having the Royal Mail chuck them into my garden. Thankfully your packaging saved the day even though they were a little bruised. Now I shall await the flowers. Will recommend for the future.

Needed a bit more maturity. Potted up immediately but many succumbed to a surprise downpour

Recently purchased a 40 plug tray of Delphiniums to bulk up my garden stock. Plants arrived very well packaged and sturdy little plants. Potted on and doing well, soon be ready to go into garden. Would certainly recommend Brookside Nursery, excellent service, plants and price - will be using again.

Tiny plugs but healthy

Very young seedlings - tiny plugs - nearly all healthy and growing away well now but thought they would be larger for the price.

Arrived in very sorry state but have been promised a credit
Thursday, 14 May 2020  | 

These arrived very pale and wilted with some dead. It is now almost 2 weeks since they came and so far 6 of them have managed to survive with some TLC but I fear their convalescence will be a long journey.
The positive is that the company has given me "loyalty points" to the value of the plants which can be used if I order again.
