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.
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.
*Brookside Nursery Top Tip – Deadhead faded flowers regularly to encourage new flowers to form rather than produce seeds. To distinguish the new flower heads from the faded ones is easy when you know what you are looking for. New flower heads are rounded in shape, the faded ones are a long shape. Snap or cut these off at the base of the stem.
It looked great in my large pots with other verbena and osteospermums. Will be buying them next year.
all arrived in prime condition as well as extras
These had been nipped out leaving 2 stalks which now have 1 flower on - weak plant. I do appreciate that plants are nipped out but only on sturdy plants. These plants weren't big enough or strong enough to do this.
I didn't receive my plants until Monday lunch time after they had been posted to me on the previous Thursday and due to the long time in the post, 3 of the verbenas were wilted and despite my repotting an hour after arrival, they have not recovered so I have thrown them out. This also affected some more of the bedding which I ordered and at the moment after repotting, I am waiting to see if they recover enough to plant out. I did order some ivy which were fine and these are now in situ.
Verbena arrived in a very good condition. Much larger than expected.
Seem to be growing well
Well packaged. Excellent condition. On time. Well done.
