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 9 cell trays. 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.

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.

Brookside Nursery Advice to get the best from your bush lobelias.

The dainty looking flowers of the annual bush lobelia are used to great effect in containers and hanging baskets. They can be used as low edging plants in border displays during the summer months.

Once ready to plant outside, space at approx. 4-6" (10-15cm) apart in moist, well-drained soil. This spacing will allow the plants to grow fully without being overcrowded.

Bush lobelias have shallow roots, so watering is essential to stop them drying out. Once they are depleted of moisture, lobelia will wilt and quickly dry out. Stems and flowers will brown. If this happens mid-season it is worth cutting back and seeing if the plant will revive.

At the end of the season lobelia can be removed and placed on the compost heap to rot down.
