A unique French Marigold derived from a breeding breakthrough which has produced multi-coloured blooms with some “never seen before” flowers that are almost pink in colour.

Highly weather tolerant, the colours of the flowers change as the plants age. In cooler spring conditions, the colours are more pronounced and change slower than in warmer conditions.

Plant your plug plants into 10cm pots or packs and grow on with cold weather protection, then plant out once the danger of frost has passed. Full variety specific growing instructions are sent out with every order.

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.

Using a good quality multi-purpose compost, pot up your plugs into 10cm pots or 6 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.

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.

Our plug plants arrived via Royal Mail and were in perfect condition. We followed the instructions and they have certainly grown in the conservatory and are looking good. Many thanks. As this is the first time we have used Brookside.

This was part of a small order, the main order was brilliant, great plants well packaged which is what we have come to expect from Brookside. Unfortunately the smaller order which also included 3 packs of very ena arrived in poor condition. I suspect plants were in good condition when dispatched but looked like couriers had been playing catch with them at the depot, almost all plants had been dislodged from their cells and quite a few had been broken beyond salvation.
