Nurseries.......the best online suppliers are specialist nurseries rather than garden centres......are far better than GC's unless a cuppa and a tea cake are also wanted
See original post
Specialist suppliers are great if you know roughly what you want but would like to find different varieties for example. For me at present physical nurseries or GC's are more practical. We're in the process of redeveloping our garden, and by wandering the nurseries and GCs we can see what is actually in flower, or coming into flower, rather than just working from books. It also gives the opportunity to spot plants we possibly hadn't even thought of although that can be a double edged,and expensive, sword
The cuppa and tea cake, or any other sort of cake, are obviously a welcome by product.
