Mail Order "A Lottery"?

Posted: 25/03/2016 at 17:21

Taylor's is an excellent company. They earned their reputation as such because they have huge customer satisfaction. 

Verdun is correct  in saying it's important to contact the company first because it's how they respond that marks them out above others. No company of any kind is completely infallible but they can't rectify a problem if they don't know about it. They'll respond appropriately. As I said - it's in their best interest to deal with issues promptly

She was a bit too big for the spot I put her in philippa - I was a bit doubtful but hoped she might grow quite slowly.

She didn't 

We're a fountain of  useful and sometimes useless information on the forum Laura!

They do that here on a little side window - about eight feet up

Lots of buds on my early clematis so hope to see a few of those in a few weeks 

Better hang out the washing before I go 

Have a good day everyone 

Cost effective moss killer

I use B&Q's own brand weed and feed which seems just as effective as any of the branded products, and works well on the plentiful moss I have in the front garden. I expect they do a mosskiller on it's own Esspee, although it's not something I use in isolation

They happily climb our walls here - which are rendered and covered in crushed shell.

Which,of course, is one of the recommended deterrents to put round plants!

We seem to have slightly drifted off topic - sorry Laura 

Perhaps it's given you a laugh though!

Layering works well  with honeysuckles hollie - just like strawberries 

That reminds me - did you take any strawberries with you to your new house? I can send you more if you want any.

I have 'the Duchess' too philippa - had to put her back in a pot as she got too blousy in the border she was in. She'll get a good spot somewhere along the back of the house when the extension's done. A few new shoots poking through now. 

I wonder who started the peony 'don't move' hooha....perhaps the same person who first spotted Nessie...
