Thanks for the suggestion. Their website looks great! I just need to decide on varieties now! An early and a mid to late I think. 

Blueberry advice please

i thinking about ordering blueberries and am planning on buying a collection of three plants. I've seen two collections: one names the varieties but is more expensive, the other is cheap but only lists the plants as 'early, mid and late'. as I've looked around different suppliers ive realised that different nurseries class the same variety as fruiting   at different times, so I can't second guess the varieties that will be supplied. 


I suppose what I'm asking is has anyone bought Suttons value blueberry collection? If so which varieties were supplied?

Thank you in advance

Are you square or round and Iron willed?

Pansyface,  read this week that Kew plant trees in square holes for that very reason.

I have bought a weeping crab apple that I hope will stay on the small side! Looking forward to planting it just as soon as it is warm enough to start reorganising a border!

Fuchsia & bacopa in a very sheltered corner and a purple bedding verbena left over from the summer, winter jasmine, hellebores, rosemary, winter pansies & violas, wallflowers. I have also got daffodil buds that are starting to bend over ready to open. Really pleased with the way the garden looks.

Lilac Tree

Lilacs flower on 'ripe' wood - next spring the flowers will be at the end of the growth it has made this year. If you prune it now you won't have any flowers next spring, but sometimes you have to sacrifice the flowers in order to encourage bushy growth, or in order to restrict the size of the shrub. 

Blackberry pruning

I have taken to trimming the new stems of my blackberry when it needs it - it likes to extend itself too far over the path. This just causes it to send out side shoots, and this year I seem to have more flowering spurs than usual. 

Fuschias with very few flowers

I've been waiting for my faithful ones to bring me my end of season colour & they do not seem to have got going - am relieved to find I'm not the only one experiencing this 

Advice about crocosmia needed

Mine didn't flower this year either. Had left them undisturbed from last year. The leaves came through ok, but then we had the lovely summer weather and they started to look very sorry for themselves! Resorted to buying another pot, so that I had the late season colour. Have put it down to this year's growing conditions and am hoping for better next year!
