Salino, I hadn't noticed that but you are quite correct. I'll be buying my plants from my local nursery in the future.

Lisa thanks for the offer but Yorkshire a bit far for me!

I recently brought this box hedging on the rhs site. Great ??35 reduced to ??17 I thought. There is also ??5 postage. However I accidently under ordered and need a few more. I was passing wisley so popped in to buy more. At the centre they are only ??11. That's without any sale or discounts. Now I feel ripped off. Although to be fair ??35 for 6 9cm box plants is pretty expensive to start with.

I have the same problem but am looking at something to come up later. I have planted tulips and alliums in a bed. I have put box around the bed for structure but I guess it will look pretty barE come August when the alliums die down.

I guess at the point I'll stick some bedding in.

Would be nice to just plant bulbs in a bed and rely on nothing else to fill the space all year?

Anyone got any good ideas what to plant to come up after tulips?

I have a bed to plant up but if I plant daffs and tulips that should see me from feb through May can I plant summer numbs in at the same time or is it best to have a perennial in the same space?

I planted seeds this year and got a nice display. If I leave them will they develop tubers and display next year?
