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.
Being alpine plants, Saxifragas prefer a well-drained site but need a soil that holds moisture that is not waterlogged so incorporating grit at the time of planting is beneficial along with a mixture of well-rotted manure or leaf mould mixed with garden soil should be ideal.Although they need a good amount of light, too much exposure to direct sunshine can cause them to suffer so a top-dressing of coarse grit will hold in moisture in dry periods. In drought conditions they will need watering.
Great value very healthy plants. Always well packaged no damage at all ! Brookside staff always keep me informed as to what stage my order is. Brilliant service.
these plants appeared very small and not ready to be repotted could not push out the plug that would suggest they were not ready, however after a week in the greenhouse they are fine
The plants arrived in good condition. They are small plugs, have been potted on and growing nicely in the greenhouse.
