Sorry, my appologies, its 72pence for 72 plants. Its cheap and a bargain. If only I was a begonia fan..

I was going to say the same, due to the cold weather we have been having they probably haven't started to produce much growth yet. You may be able to get there in time.

I am a little confused...

I was reading up on deciduous trees & shrubs and have noticed that buxus and budleija are listed as deciduous yet they keep their leaves. Is this information wrong or am I missing something?

Yeah, I was itching to get my toms sown in Jan too, I think it was much warmer then than it is now and was hoping for another warm March, would have beem well away. But I was busy planting other things, pruning and preparing so eneded up not doing them yet. I'm so glad I didnt. But I have to say Lyn, they look well and healthy, not at all leggy. 

experiences with free offers of plants

Posted: 25/03/2013 at 13:51

I ordered quite a bit of stuff from T&M, I think it was about 200 plants and it cost me roughly £10 in postage. At the end of Feb I recieved a bush which was basically bare twigs but now its trippled in size and looks great. 72 plug plants arived which were about 2cm like Ryan mentioned but they are all growing quite well. Delays on some of the others stuff. All in all I can't really complain yet as they didn't cost me a penny (used tescos vouchers).
