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

Dove you make your OH sound like an alchofrolic 

Mine does the same, no need to buy all the fancy stuff, nature takes care of everything, if you let it.

I agree with you Fairy, poor Sebastian, I felt sorry for him the whole way through, dominated by mother and her fanatical religion.

Jeremy Irons is one of my all time favourites as well, saw him in a cowboy the other day.

I am trying to battle through some other Waugh, but nothing compares to Brideshead.
