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.

Arrived looking a bit sad, mainly because they felt very cold I felt! Repotted with TLC and now coming along nicely thank you. I'm sure, knowing the quality of your plants, they will be fine. I just wonder whether they had had an unscheduled sleep over somewhere chilly en route here!
Well packaged. Plants very small leaves very yellow. Out of 40 cells 4 or 5 completely empty. Half remaining plants just shrivelled up remaining plants very poor
Unfortunately only 25% serviced planting on
I ordered 40 plug bizzy lizzies to arrive mid April. The delivery date was changed and the arrived early May. This was not a problem which I accepted. When they arrived the plugs where not in good condition ie there were probably 1/3 of them with just one leaf or with both side leaves dead with only the very tiny centre of the plant struggling. I planted them up as soon as they arrived, sticking to the planting advice info enclosed. Two weeks on I have probably lost 15 of the plugs and the others are not flourishing as they should. I have used your nursery before with good results, which is why I was astonished with the quality of these plugs. No, I would not purchase these again.
The impatiens I bought were good healthy plugs, quick delivery, and great communication I knew exactly when to expect them, I shall be buying again without any doubt, a very happy customer.....thank you.
Delivered in good shape but I did lose a few of them in potting up. But the plants I have are healthy and thriving. Would recommend Brookside for the care they provide to both their plants and their customers!
Would have liked these busy lizzies to be larger. They have taken a long time to get going
Unfortunately only 50% of mine have survived so far. Think more might not make it. Very tiny plug plants. One didn't even have a leaf-just a tiny 1mm stalk. Rest of plugs from this nursery were great but I wouldn't order the impatiens again.
These plants arrived when expected but did not look as good as the other plants I had ordered the leaves were a bit on the yellow side. They are in the greenhouse with the other plants but are not thriving and I have lost to date about 12 plants from the batch with I expect some more dying as they dont look very good. Sadly unhappy with these plants.
Great plants always provide a splash of colour And great nursery who provide them and great service
