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.
Maintain a just compost, drying out will cause flower abortion, while wet compost will cause the plant to stretch and reduce flowering. Plants require good light but shade lightly on very bright days to keep flowers above the foliage and prevent leaf burn. Space plants well in their growing environment to avoid stretching.
Good hygiene should be maintained throughout the growing phase. Try not to get the compost too wet and allow the plants as much light as possible. Maintain temperature levels and avoid leaving plants wet late in the day to prevent growth tip abortion. Gradually acclimatise plants to the outside conditions by placing in a sheltered place during the day and bring them back inside at night. Watch out for cold winds as well as pets, birds, mice etc. After all risk of frost has passed they can be left out or planted into their final flowering position for you to enjoy.
Impatiens grow well in semi-shade and make excellent long-lasting summer colour plants in tubs, pots, baskets, pouches as well as beds and borders. They make very good all year round house plants and can be over wintered in a cool room indoors or a frost free greenhouse. Regular feeding about once a week will ensure blooms all summer.
Brookside Nursery Top Tip – Pinching out the first flower buds will ensure that the plant will put its energies into a good root system and foliage growth which will result in a stronger, bushier plant with more flowers.

Thank growing nicely only lost 1 plant up to yet nice coollection
Arrived well packed and in good condition.
Arrived on time. So far so good. All the plugs seem to be surviving. Considering i planted them that is a miracle in itself x
Lost a couple around the edges but the rest coming on beautifully very pleased
These are coming on well will be the envy of my neighbours for a plant not widely grown
The plastic growers they were in were so small that many were destroyed when I tried to get them out by using a small item to push them up from the bottom. I've planted them but they really haven't grown much
Thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear that you have been disappointed and ask that you get in touch with us to see if we can help further.
Plants came were very small and few were dead in the try potted on but struggling to get them to grown on to a good size for planting out
Thank you for your review. To see if we can help further we have now emailed.
Plants were very small and unhealthy compared to T and M. Approximately 15 percent have failed in my greenhouse
Thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear that you have lost some of the Impatiens and that they were small and unhealthy when they arrived. To look into this further we have now emailed you.
Plug plants were very wet when they arrived and about 12 did not flourish. They have remained quite small and one lot of forty have remained quite yellow in leaf. All plug plants were potted on in good quality potting compost but those that have survived in this particular lot aren't doing too well.
Lovely little plugs with excellent root system
