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.

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.

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.

Impatien Advice

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.

*** For packs of 40 plug plants gently remove the small plugs from the tray by pushing up from the bottom using a pencil.

Happy gardener

All the plants I received are growing well. I contacted your Customer Care team as concerned that the Violet Busy Lizzie plants were tiny - you advised I should leave them in their trays for a couple of weeks, which I did, then potted them on and they are now looking healthy and sturdy. Thank you.

You have a very efficient website for booking them all in. I think I should’ve bought a bigger plants for busy Lizzie because of the cold weather they are taking a while to get going but I’m sure they will be fine once they do

Summer order for 2021
Wednesday, 28 April 2021  | 

I am always pleased and very satisfied with my order from Brookside.
The plants are in excellent condition when I received them..
I have recommended them to several of my friends who now purchase from them.
They are a very professional company to deal with.
More than ever now we should be purchasing our plants which are grown in England also supporting our own nurseries..

I ordered several packs of bedding plants, courgette plant and pepper plants. I was kept informed of the progress of my order and all the plants arrived on the due date. They were well packed and all in good fresh condition. We potted the plants up on the day of arrival and are all progressing well. Brilliant service, brilliant plants. Will order again next year. Thank you Brookside Nursery.

Lovely, healthy little plugs that arrived in perfect condition and, having been kept in a cold greenhouse, have survived the current sub-zero April weather.
