These Jumbo plug plants would benefit from potting into large pots (13cm upwards) for a few weeks before planting out in the garden. Tender varieties will need protecting from frost. Compost volume around 5cm deep x 5cm square. Foliage height 5cm-20cm (depending on variety). Full growing instructions are provided.
Perennial plants come in hundreds, if not thousands, of varying shapes, sizes and colours and if you are like me, you will always find room for one more in your garden! They are reliable, hardy plants that breathe life into beds and borders from late spring to late autumn and beyond. These plants are also very attractive to pollinating bees, butterflies and beneficial insects.
*With a little planning you can have perennial plants in flower for several months of the year - almost all year round in milder areas.
I bought these for a friend of mine who had managed to kill hers off. I was so impressed with the quality of these plants, I kept one for myself. Brookside is such a reliable nursery.
I was looking for something a bit different for one of my pots and Salvia Salvatore Blue really fits the bill. The plants when they arrived where growing well and should give me and the bees a superb display this summer.
Received these along with the rest of my order, sadly they arrived almost dead after having been in transit for 6 days in the postal service, although not the fault of the nursery, poor plants could't be expected to last that long, also one of the greenhouse pods on another item had opened and plants had got bent over so were prone rather than upright, I am hopeful these might right themselves. The other plants were teeny tiny ones, and were dehydrated after a six day wait. Normally superb quality and delivery, sadly very disappointed this time after having waited so very long to get despatched when all nurseries closed due to lockdown. Royal Mail also have their problems but they are not doing Brookside a service keeping them in transit for so very long before delivery, not as if the live plant information isn't displayed prominently on the box!
Thank you for your review we are sorry to hear you have been disappointed and have emailed you regarding this.
These plugs were large enough to plant out immediately which I did and they are doing very well.Many thanks
