We have a garden centre as Dove discribed, it is good for composts and the statues and water features are fantastic, they sell a wide range of greenhouses and garages, swings, arbours etc, lots of wood to build your own, plants......absolutely useless.

its better to spend a day with my friend Hosta, always get plants and seeds there

He should be home today, seems like he enjoyed his mini break.

Don't be scaredy cat.....

I am not keen on any plant cut into a lolly pop shape, but maybe they suit town houses, they would look silly in the country side where plants look better growing naturally.

The parcel size is ...45cm X 35cm x16 cm so as long as you can find a box a bit smaller than those measurements, and the parcel weights less than 2kg, (you  can weigh it on kitchen scales) then it's only 2.80.

Recruiting a Rugby club sounds fun Dove, could go some of that  

But would they dig my long border a bit wider.

Don't even think about it Gran,I have received the most gorgeous box full of plants from Nutcutlet (just had thought that I haven't thanked her) but it all equals out in the end. You are very welcome, hope you have a free day to pot them up.

Rosie, you can get about six in a box if you post them, for 2.80, maybe people would be prepared to pay you the postage?

We have not long taken out a similar hedge, they had been in for 28 years, a 100' run off them. We cut them down with a chain saw, then just picked around the roots, using a mattock and iron bar. It's easier with two people as one can wiggle and the other can chop the roots as they show. 

The whole lot did come out, although it took a fair few weekends!  That was in winter of 2013, it's been planted up for two years now and we think it's the best thing we could ever had done. They are horrible boring trees. Heres a photo of it this Spring, it's second year, just to encourage you
