I have tried for the last half hour to access Verdun's thread about the 'good guys' but the search thingy just does not do it So here is an annexe of the good guys; RHS plants, ordered 2 or 3 working days ago, delivered this a.m. in the most PERFECT packaging possible; all cardboard and eco. I thought I was getting a 9cm pot, it was 13cm, 22cm high with 5 blooms (it was Miss Wilmotts Ghost) Very pleased. Only cavil: in the mini catalogue they sent they listed a double Delphinium that is so weird, it looks like some plastic replica flower.

Try this artjak.

Hope it works.

I often find its better to hit the spy glass (to the right of the search bar)and then put your topic search in.

Or just search on Google as it often comes up with Gardenersworld first and gives you as list of the search item.

Edd, what is the spy glass?

01/07/2014 at 22:05

Very top of the page (in green) next to the weather.

01/07/2014 at 22:06

Left of your name and options.

Have you found it?


01/07/2014 at 22:07

Do you mean 'search this site'? because that is what I have been trying for the last half hour!!!

01/07/2014 at 22:12

Yes, but hit the spy glass to the right fist instead of typing it in the white space (search this site) it will bring up a new window

Sorry if this is what you have tried already

Let me know.

..I can also give a good report about the RHS plant site....but you do know artjak, that their plants are supplied by Crocus...? they just have different offers going on...'s Crocus by another name really...

01/07/2014 at 22:29

Salino, I was just so impressed by the speed of delivery and the packaging, which has instantly gone to a friend who does ebay.

When I googled Miss Wilmotts Ghost (the plant I wanted) one of the sites that came up was RHS, Crocus was not there.

Edd thank you for that tip.

Have you bought this for seed? You do know its biennial and if its in flower now it will die shortly? Although it will scatter so much seed around you will have it for evermore

01/07/2014 at 22:41

I found it impossible to grow from seed so decided to get a small plant this year in the hope that it will seed.

..they seem to call it 'Silver Ghost' on Crocus... just as well you got it through the RHS though artjak, as it's a pound cheaper through them... quite architectural isn't it..?

02/07/2014 at 08:08

I've had garden merchandise from Crocus and have found them very professional and price competitive.

02/07/2014 at 10:07

I love the look of it; I have hopefully planted it where it will like to go forth and multiply

Hi All

I'm assuming that these 'good guys' are all mail order. Would really appreciate if any of these are open to the public. And what area they are in. Old fashioned but I prefer to see my plants before I buy


02/07/2014 at 13:30

..I expect there are quite a few listed on the other thread that are open to the public... which area of the country are you in then...?

02/07/2014 at 13:31

What area are you in, greencab?

03/07/2014 at 03:25

I live in Southend, Essex and use my local GC (Morleys) which is very good but I wish they would arranged their plants alphabetically.Could save a lot of time and money (lol)

So many different views on Mailorder that its put me right off.

Thanks for your responses
