Everytime I buy something from parkers, they enclose a booklet giving all the info even whether they need slug protection, I do pot up their perennials for the winter and plant out in spring thougth.
I bought the funniest thing from them, as I thought, just 5 pieces of root,, I laid it in a tray and covered it with gravel,(just like carol does) and it's now starting to shoot.
My alamanchia and acer, bought last year for 1.99 and planted in the Spring are now 3feet tall and covered in leafbuds, my daughter, K, paid a fortune for her acer and they are both the same size now.
I like to buy small plants and watch them grow on, some people like the instant garden look.
