GW free tulips in oct issue

Posted: 06/11/2013 at 13:20

It's good to hear that some of the bulbs arrived and were healthy. Hopefully the ones they're sending to replace mine will be healthy too. It was a good offer and I got the £5 voucher as well.

Spring bulbs started to grow now?

No way are my shooting tips the result of any bird activities. This has happened regularly over a number of years and is nothing at all to worry about. As the weather gets colder, the bulb top growth will slow down and all will be well.

gardeningfantic when I read your post saying you were going to contact gardeners world direct I did just that. I told them about the 2 generic replies I recieved from Mr F and gave the case numbers assigned.

I too heard right back from GW who had gotten in touch with Mr. F and also from Mr Fothergills who said they were sending a new batch of tulips.

It'll be interesting to see if the new tulips arrive in good time and are'nt mouldy. Great to get such a positive response from Gardeners World.

gardeningfantic I have been in touch with gardeners world to inform them what has happened. I doubt anything will be done 'tho. I emailed mr. f twice but have heard nothing since the generic replies.

gardeningfantic I got mine the other day and some of them were mouldy too. I emailed to complain and recieved a generic reply saying my email had been logged but have'nt heard anything since.

I've had unresolved problems with them before.

Has anyone received their tulips yet?

Can I repot my Acer now?

Posted: 18/10/2013 at 20:53

I bought one in November last year. It was Acer Palmatum but I don't know more than that. It was in a 2ltr pot and I planted it within a week of getting it, into a good sized 4ltr pot with some home made leaf mould added to the compost. It has done great and settled into it's new home well.

Patrevili Ginglygangly I empathise, I had real bother getting mine out a month or so ago. I did manage it with great difficulty. One got divided into 4 but it was with brute force and not an easy job. I had to use a shovel, knife and forks in the end. I won't leave it as long next time. They really need dividing every 3 years or so I think.
