Size guide - Pack of 5 Large Plug Plants 

Pot Ready, Large, Healthy plants individually rooted in large plugs of compost. Ideal for planting into baskets, containers or small areas in the garden. Best results achieved if grown on for a short while in 9cm/10cm pots prior to planting out if planting straight into garden borders. Tender varieties will need protecting from frost. Compost volume around 4-5cm deep x 3-4cm square. Foliage height 5cm-12cm (depending on variety). Full growing instructions are provided.

Osteospermum Advice

Osteospermum belong to the daisy family and originate from Southern Africa, hence their common name - Cape Daisy or African Daisy.  

Osteospermum thrive when grown in a sunny aspect, so always plant them in a border that has full sun or partial sun and preferably in a warm sheltered area.

Water the plants regularly especially during their first season as they do not like to dry out and feed them throughout the summer too to help promote flowering.

Deadhead the faded flowers to prolong the flowering season and remove most of the stem too to keep the plant looking neat and tidy.

Osteospermum respond well to pruning so cut them back either in early spring or in the autumn.

Although many Osteospermum are listed as annuals, they are half-hardy perennials. This is because they are not entirely hardy and will not probably survive a long series of winter frosts. But they can be propagated by taking cuttings in the autumn or you could try over-wintering them in a frost-free spot.

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.

I’ve held off this review hoping my large plugs would come good especially as we have been so pleased with things we have received over the years, unfortunately they haven’t come on like the rest of my plugs this year they look very sad I’ve potted them out this week in hope they come on considering they were large plugs they look very poor

The most reliable mail order nursery we have found
Thursday, 11 June 2020  | 

Not large plants by garden centre standards but that is why they are so much cheaper. Need to be grown on before planting out. Ours arrived in usual good condition. We have now just planted them out and they are lovely strong plants and look beautiful.
I have bought from a large number of mail order nurseries and Brookside are by by far the best in terms of plant quality.

Delays in Transit
Monday, 18 May 2020  | 

This review relates to an order for several plants. I received an email on Monday 4 May to say that my order had been dispatched, and they arrived the following Monday in a very sorry state, having spent 7 days in transit. A great pity, as Brookside's plants are normally in excellent condition. Luckily, most of the plants have survived and some have now started to grow on quite strongly. I know that Royal Mail parcel services have been severely reduced in present circumstances, and I wonder whether it might be better to use a courier service at the moment.
