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
http://www.peternyssen.com one the good guys for me
bulbs, corms, tubers etc
Thought I'd bump this up as people seem to be in a buying mood, or is that just me?
Caths Garden Plants....excellent...can be added to my earlier comments about the good guys.
Recently purchased from another supplier. Will add here if goods arrive satisfactorily. Signs so far are good.
On Thursday evening I ordered 8 packets if seeds from Premier Seeds Direct (via EBay), 99p each and free P&P, they have arrived today and I am really impressed with the service. The only point to note for newbies like me is that there were no sowing/growing instructions as the packets are plain, but that's not too much of a problem as I have learned lots from on here and have googled the rest! So I will definitely be using Premier Seeds again and would recommend them.
Also on Thursday night, I ordered a Geum (Totally Tangerine) and a climbing rose (Iceberg) from Crocus, they too have arrived today, really well packaged and excellent quality. Again, I am really impressed and would definitely use them again and recommend them
Just received some good quality Hostas from www.huttonhostas.com
Taylors Clematis have been superb Great plants, great packing, lovely personal service ..... Will never buy a clematis from a GC again
Another good guy to add. Ordered Imperata red baron last autumn and one plant was damaged in transit. I informed Jacksons Nurseries at the time but added I hoped I would "resurrect" it. Well it didn't recover. Informed Jacksons and they are sending me 3 replacement places complete with apologies and friendliness.
Have had plants before from them and always excellent service and, whisper it, low prices
I now have a a list of good suppliers of various plants from whom I can order with utmost confidence
Another good guy - Pine Cottage Plants in Devon - beautiful (huge) agapanthus arrived yesterday, as promised, and they even threw in a little baby one in a pot for good measure, which was a lovely surprise
