I'm not sure Daryl, but I just emailed them that very question. I'd rather buy a bigger plant, I think, but know it'll flower in January 2015, as my gardens small and it would be nice to have some colour soon. Which ones did you order! The plug deals seem very reasonable.

Thanks everyone, great to know. I suppose plug plants won't flower this year then, so I need to get 2L pots if I want flowers in January?

Have had a bad experience with Crocus (even though they have an amazing selection admittedly). Is there a good supplier who send out plants in great condition please?

Many thanks.

Many thanks berg hill - I suppose doing it in November would be ok if I'm in London and the winter is mild. Then again, if it's a harsh one, the new shoots, as you saI'd, may be damaged by hard frosts. I think I may tidy mine up a bit now, as it got huge this year and is looking very scruffy....then prune it hard back as usual in Feb. thanks again, good to brainstorm on here

My Dawsons White is nice, not as white as Betty B but still bright. I also have the Jack Frost. I'm also in London and had the shame problem as you with heavy clay. I just dug in and turned over the soil many many times and in the end the brunnera were happy  Took time though.
