Had a busy week with plants.

I have had deliveries every day for the past 10 days and in total I have 596 plants,

these are all flowers some perennial,some annuals and a few shrubs.

This year I am changing the look of my garden,so should have some good photos when garden is finished.

I have received my plants off two companies one is jparkers who are the best and the other is thompson and morgan but these are very poor young plants.

Hiya dannyboy

Well. You're keen.

You intend potting them up for a while?  

Exciting though.  Got a plan?Design? Or just a explosion of colour?

Sounds exciting, Dannyboy! Have lots of fun planting it!

Vrdun, you are right about potting things up for a while and letting them develop. It is easier to lay them out and get a good layout for the borders, too. It also means that those you don't find room for can grow on and thrive and then be sold or given away.

All potted up.

I have a plan and a design.

I have about 22 different plants most are perennial.

large part of my garden are for perennial plants which I have only just cleared the lawn off it this year.(soil is now perfect after a lot of hard work)

I do have a lot of pots and hanging baskets which will be filled with the annuals

Sounds like you have got it sorted. Maybe a picture now and when planted?
