I've never had any trouble with plants from Parkers. Conversely, I had a broken peony and badly potted on gaura from Crocus, so I guess it's a bit of a lottery.
I use small nurseries from eBay quite a lot, they are generally excellent. Of the more commercial ones I always use Viv Marsh for alstroemerias, Haylofts for penstemons and Wootens of Wenhaston for auriculas.
I have used both Parkers and T and M for plug plants and they have been fine
parkers plants have been very good this year.and so have T & M. and gardening direct. They have all got better packing this year.had good results.
I bought online for the first time this year from T & M and they were great. I bought 12 penstemons and ended up with over 20 once I had split them and planted them. Bonus plants yay. I didn't get extra's with the other plants but they are all doing fine.
As have had so many problems with Parkers over the years I would not ever use them again. Maybe they have improved but ......... There are some very good plant supppliers on line, often a good way to access the expertise of specialists in e.g. hostas and so on. All good duppliers are insurance covered and are quite happy to replace anything that has gone wrong, I use van Meuwin and several others, Bloms for bulbs - there are good suppliers out there.
get my bulbs from spalding not had any bad ones at a good price.
