but sure others will chip in

Helleborus argutifolius?

Posted: 01/03/2014 at 17:17

I thought i had an argutifolius, but it doesn't look like that.  Mine has very dark green leaves and lime flowers with a hint of a red edge - anyone know what it is ?  They grow everywhere, including cracks in the pavement

the vernon geranium company

Just had a vernon catalogue land on the doormat too.  Its a shame that when these small companies get taken over they get the advantage of the marketing might of the big boys, but that quality goes by the by.  Wonder if anyone has thought of trying to combine the mega marketing with continued quality - could be a winner

Snowdrops in the green - offer

I used eurobulbs last week ( wisbech based) for that reason.  20 "free" bulbs for £6 postage wasn't as good as  Eurobulbs £9 for 100 bulbs - and i needed a few.  When i get myself going i will plant mine today - ordered last Sunday, arrived on Thursday, along with some great quality cyclamen.  They get my vote
