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.
I found Brookside when looking on line for tagetes gem during lockdown. I have never been succesful in growing them from seed (irratic germination); my usual garden centre has previously ordered tagetes plants for me for many a year. I love the smell of the leaves, their delicate orangy yellow flowers, that they last until the colder nights of autumn and most importantly that the bees & hover flies absolutely love them which gives me hours of watching & enjoyment. On arrival these were the tiniest plug plants I have ever seen! I was not hopeful. However they were well wrapped and healthy. Obviously been well cared for. I planted them on. What a display they are giving; very pleased. I will be back in 2021 for more. Thank you Brookside.
I think this review is a month early. Plug plants arrived as described, were timely and well protected.2 weeks on they are progressing well and we will be planting out this week with hot weather forecast. I canít give five stars because I havenít seen if they fulfil their ultimate description but I would certainly buy again based on my experience. 4 star
