Must say I have had some very good, and dreadful, service and plants from various on-line sellers. Van Meuwen has been, for me, one of the best, as has Suttons - which is now affilliated with Dobies, Parkers are, as we all know dreadful, they lie and send wrong stuff that fails - I quite like some of the big commercial growers as you get alot of bang for your money as they say. Near us there is a locally run and managed plant centre that has about the best basket plants I have ever seen anywhere, if you don't want to grow your own. They also sell big sacks of moss for the baskets and hangars, and if you really don't want to do even that, or you cannot, they will plant everything for you and look after them until you can take them home. If you design the basket or whatever they will follow your plan, or if you leave it with them, will plant to their plans - always look good. i usually buy around 3 trays of small plants from them and the baskets do very well - except when there is no sun as last year, and I cannot blame them for that!
