Morning all - sun here too And first frost for weeks.
Thanks Stacey - i might give the offers a go - I note what others have said about size of plugs etc, but i have had more than 50% survival rate when i have tried these offers before - and for £5 thats still a bargain. I agree with Dove and Verdun, that when your borders are full its best to select your new plants individually. But mine still need bulking out, and that soon gets very expensive at £5 a pot. I also donate my spares to the garden club plant sales - which means they can afford more star speakers to keep me happy in 2015
Today is part 2 of the bramble assault. Plus OH is digging more soil over ready for 100 beech whips for a new boundary hedge, plus he slipped a couple of cherries, a brown turkey fig (will need your help Dove), and some stepover apples into his shopping cart. I have taught him well. So you can see the attraction of the bargain plant offers - he seems to have blown the garden budget for a while !
