supermarket plants

Posted: 31/05/2015 at 14:38

i've just bought 6 strawberry plants for £1 for my daughter to grow on from B&Q. Several in the pack were dead/dying so I just swapped those for healthy plants from the other reduced packs!!  Lots of other plant packs were wilting badly there too, such a waste.

Also, I too find Morrissons plants are good, healthy plants at very reasonable prices.  i bought 3 pots of Agapanthus 'Blue Umbrella' for £3 each. Can't wait for those to flower!

star gaze lily................after having my daughter, who never pauses for breath, I can now see some of the merits in my grandma's saying!!!   mind you, my grannie can talk the hind leg off a donkey so perhaps she actually wanted more time for HER to talk!!

thanks milfordchris, i'll try anything to save it as my ceanothus has flowers for 10 months of the year and the bees adore it in the summer months!

and don't get me started on the neighbours, the weedkiller is the tip of the iceberg!!

thanks for your sympathy flowering rose.  i'm actually looking at moving to get away from them, which is a shame as i've lived in my house for 15 years now and two of my children have grown up here..............

apologies for my late reply to your reply!! thanks for your answer.

it can't be a systemic weedkiller as only the parts the weedkiller touched have died back but i will follow your advice and fingers crossed for next spring!

and yes, the local policing team are aware of the problems i'm having but it's my word against the neighbours, i didn't see them do anything and, despite me hearing neighbours talking about putting weedkiller on, it's not proof enough!.

my lovely (!!) neighbours have put weedkiller on my ceanothus (and other plants too) as part of an ongoing hate campaign.  Luckily it's just on the leaves of the ceanothus but i'm wondering whether to prune out the dead now or leave it til spring?  i'm oop north in yorkshire and the ceanothus is quite exposed...advice please
