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.

Small plugs in excellent condition.Growing on nicely.GOOD value
The ordering process was straight forward. The plants arrived within the specified time frame and were well packaged. The plants were still in good condition when unpacked and have continued to grow well in there new pots, a small number did not survive the transfer to larger pots.
Again small plugs but I knew that they would be. A couple of weeks in the greenhouse & bingo...ready for my tubs.
Plants arrived looking poorly. Transplanted with care but two thirds died with final third soon to follow. I'll have to buy plants from local gstdem centre to replace them. Sad to be disappointed, I wouldn't order again.
I bought a large order of plants and all are flourishing except for these. All but a few are still alive. I will buy more hoping it is just a bad batch, but still very disappointed.
Thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear the Impatiens did not do so well. Please do keep in touch on the progress of these plants.
Arrived in the post in very poor condition. Had not been packed well.
We are so sorry to hear that you have not been happy with your order. We have now emailed you to see if we can help furter.
All good established plants and packed wellDispatched &: delivery excellent.
Got the bedding plants as shown in photos. Would have liked earlier delivery as they arrived on time but only just (7 days) but otherwise all good. I would use this company again.
The first time I've used this Nursery - but it won't be the last.So easy to order, delivered as promised (despite the situation at the time) and communication was top notch, as a query I had was quickly answered. As for the plants, every single one survived and they have grown enormously since being planted. So very healthy plants.Excellent in every way, thank you.
Great strong little plants, packed fairly well two were out of the tray when received but were undamaged. Only 38 in the tray but I had enough for what I wanted to do.
