i honestly think we are not going to see the sun again.. the garden and plants and veg as well as seeds have all suffered this year.. not good.

What's the weather like in your area?

Posted: 02/07/2012 at 17:51

raining here all day.. not stopped since 7am this morning.. really fed up with it now..

day lillies are not opening fear they will die in bud.. and more is forecast for tomorrow.. this is july for heavens sake.. all we have had it wind and rain.. battered my plants..

Bad service, bad plants beware!

i only get bulbs from them.. so have not experienced anything liek that

Must admit i get my plants, that i cant seem to grow from seed,  from jersyplantsdirect.. they are great.. this year was first time i had a problem one lot of trailing geraniums.. emailed them about it and they sent out replacement 70 plants just like that..  they are great work out at 7p a plant.. that is good for my pocket..
