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.

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.

Dianthus Specific Advice 

Plant it in full to partial sun in fertile, well-drained, neutral to alkaline soil. Avoid soggy conditions and overwatering, as these may cause stem and root decay. Regular removal of faded flower stems encourages continued flowering. Dianthus Corona are great in beds and borders and make a delightful addition to containers.

We have bought Blueberry Magic for the park before and they are beautiful little gems. Sturdy little plugs that soon grow on when potted up before planting out. Brookside service is second to none, thank you.
