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.
We were let down by Crocus this year, who cancelled our order twice. Brookside came to the rescue-my title says it all. I will buy from Brookside next year. Our two large terracotta pots look fab.
Good to be able to get these more unusual annuals as plugs. The usual excellent quality and value for money.
Received my plug plants exactly when expected. Well packed and protected and of an excellent quality. Very pleased will use Brookside again
Arrived in good condition. Plants are putting on new growth and so far are withstanding the very cold weather. They are potted up and protected by 2 layers of fleece in an unheated polytunnel.
I tried these for the first time last year putting them in window boxes and hanging baskets - they are just right for getting height in the middle of a basket. I was delighted to find that they seemed to be attracting the bees to our garden and determined to get them again this year. As always my plants arrived securely packed and in excellent condition. Having tried many different companies down the years, I would rate Brookside as among the best and am happy to recommend you. I just hope that as you grow bigger, the quality will not suffer.
Excellent service excellent plants
Arrived in excellent condition
Have grown these previously and they do well as 'fillers', surviving with little water, and a pretty blue when there is not much of that colour blooming.I am impressed with the quality: lovely sturdy, well rooted little plugs, which I have potted on and are growing away happily in the greenhouse. These arrived promptly and substantially packed, so I received them in optimum condition.
Very pleased with quality as always
