I need Help maybe this post should be on seed share ??
I’m looking for today but can’t find any suppliers that sell these so I was hoping that someone could point me in the right direction or has some I could buy. I been to the RHS Plant Selector and this shows one supplier but when I visit their web site there is no listing for this plant.
Help please I am willing to buy and even wait until cutting can be made in the spring
Also I’m looking for magenta and white Pericallis CV picture can be scanned if required of both plants
I have my fingers crossed
Why is it displaying a dash between todays mission I didn't put it in there ??
The dashes are new thing made by the techies, don't know what the point is, but all headings are like this now.
Spoon Daisy , AKA whirligigs
you might be able to get osteospermum whirligig in the spring when the garden centre have plug plants in.
Thank you Fidget I will keep my eye out for this
There or should i say which nursery is likely to stock Osteospermum whirligig
best wishes James
Hiya clueless. I used to grow this osteospermum....I.e. the white one...but just grow the purple and pink ones now for my hardy varieties.
However, a nursery fairly local to me.....cross common nursery at the Lizard in Cornwall does grow this. I almost bought some in the spring but went for a variegated version, viz., Gweek variegated, instead. This has the same white spoon petalled flowers but on beautiful green and white foliage.
I don't know if this nursery does mail order....I,think it may do.....but come next spring I should be able to get a plant and maybe post it to you. Find out first if they do mail order though first,ok?
The osteospermum you are after is hardy down here but prob not where you are. No prob though cos they root very easily from cuttings that can be over wintered in GH.
Verdun you are a star next time im in your neck of the woods we will have to have a coffee and a chat
I go to cornwall most years camping love it
we are going camping this weekend to devon some where sun holiday 9.50 weekend break
Let me know if you contact cross common nursery. But we'll get your plant!
Verdun sorted your suggesting of cross-common nursery paid off and they do mail orders thanks
to Buy in the spring
Well done James. It's a brilliant little nursery with so many "gems"
Just keeping this alive so I don’t loss the nursery name I suppose I should write it down in my new A4 yearly planner/diary bought from the pound shop
In fact that’s what I’m going to do today write my want list down.
