I ordered some roses from jparkers a month ago,and on monday I emailed them asking where my order was and was told it had been sent out.

That same night at 9pm I had a knock on the door and it was someone who lives in my street saying that he thinks this parcel is mine.

he told me it had his address on the box so he opened it and the invoice inside had my address on.

It was my order and i complained to parkers.

I have had loads of deliveries from parkers and for this to happen is a joke.

I have told parkers that i would not be ordering anymore.

see what happens.

what to do about these bulbs that have just arrived in the post

Thanks Verdun.

Can you tell me where is the best place to get some of the grasses you told me to get.

I do us parkers,T&M and some of the plants I have had off them are poor and I am after mature plants.

Moved my acer this morning and it was more difficult than I thought.The root ball was massive and it was very heavy but it is now in its final position and now looking forward to the planting of my grasses which are going where my acer was.

Thank you Brumbull.

Will be moving it tomorrow so fingers crossed it comes out easy.

I am going to dig a trench about a foot away from  the base of the tree and see where the roots go.

Hi all.

I am planning to move my acer but are unsure if it will cause any damage in growth next year.

It is now 4 foot high and been in the ground for two and half years.

All the leaves have now dropped off so I am hopping it is in the dormant state.

anyone moved one?

making notes of all the above and once again thanks

I am looking at changing a part of my garden next year,this part of the garden is only 5 foot by 5 foot and I am thinking of planting grasses.

It only gets the sun in the morning and the soil is heavy with part soil and part clay.

anyone got any grasses?

need some ideas of what to buy.

no thanks.

looks like some kind of marketing.

companies get your email address this way and sell it on to hundreds of other companies.

over the past two years I have planted over 20 clematis plants

The first ones I planted are now over 20 feet long running along my garden wall,the following year I planted some below the first ones which have grown into the first ones so I get 4 different coloured flowers running along the same wall.

I have now put a trellis up in the middle of my back garden and I am going to see how many different climber plants and colours I can get off a trellis which is only 10 feet long. I have already planted two clematis and one Jasmine all of which are different colours,I can plant the trellis on both sides and are now thinking of a couple of honeysuckles and a climbing rose.

The trellis is only 10 feet long but the border on both sides is three feet long so I am going to use canes for the climbers which will be planted three foot from the trellis.

So will it work?

any other climbers what I can use?
