Tracy, sent you a pm about parkers.
Certainly Brumbull, I'm gonna ask for a discount from them next time for the free plugs!
Mail Order Trees excellent service and price we received 2 lovely healthy Rowans - waiting for an order just placed from Bowden's of ferns and hosta's they were extremely helpful - hopefully all will be perfect end of Feb when they arrive
i used Bowdens last year, and was very pleased - hope they are as good for you StillLearning
Did you go for the dark green one Mark?
Mark99, were these small hellebores, and can you tell me what size pots they told you to pot them up to (if indeed they were small ones?)
Thanks Mark. I got some from them, much smaller plants, and potted as I thought they had told me to but I put them in too big a pot (gardening novice) and they really struggled They were in good nick when they arrived so was annoyed with myself.
I second your recommendation though
Bump for Poddington
Dont worry. They will struggle ironically in too big a pot but best leave them now. They will assert themselves during the summer. Hopefully a flower or two next spring
Anyone had the dark green hellebore? If so I would like to know,ow dark green it is. So tempared by it but I already have some greens. If its a truly daek green I want it
Had another delivery from crocus today. 3 potentilla's a buddlja weyeriana sungold, strawberries and raspberry canes.
I am always impressed with the root systems in their potted plants.
They may be a bit more expensive at times but so far I can't fault their quality.
Quality every time for me too Dave. Exciting getting new plants, isn't it?
Bumped up for Edd
I have to say www.mailordertrees.co.uk and www.directplants.co.uk are brilliant. Next day delivery and very well packaged.
Both are on ebay
I have just had order delivered from Scotplants direct, ( not the first time I have used them)
I bought escallonia plants in 4" pots about 14" tall very compact and bushy all in leaf, £2.45 each, (Could have got 10 for 18.50)
50 very thick 7' canes for 13.45 and 50 x 4" flower pots for 2.45.
they do charge 7.99 for postage but if you do a large enough order, or get together with friends, I think it is still good value and the quality of items is superb.
I bought several laurel plants in winter 2012, they have romped away, all very good.
good trees from http://www.readsnursery.co.uk/ and Overstrand garden centre,all very nice condition but no instructions which ought to be the norm,but very good service
