How the Americans see us!

Thank you for that Georgia, I love to hear about what other people are up to in far off lands.

We could put our whole county into one of your fields I know they are huge. And the machinery to cope is also huge.

Have you any photos of your garden to share with us.

Have never had one, so couldn't say, if you only want to do a few plants it's ok, I have about 100 lots here, a propergator wouldn't be much use, and everything is popping up nicely without.

Thats ok Krissy. They should load eventually because you are taking them on the iPad, I have never had a refusal, although I have from the camera and PC.

J Parkers let down

Posted: 17/03/2016 at 17:50

I am looking at just three if Parkers plants, a Strawberry Deutziea, an Acer and two Amelanchier, all 4 to 5 feet tall, they have been in the ground for four years this Autumn, the Deutziea was covered in flowers on its second year, they all cost 1.99 each.

the reason they die on most people is that Parkers put instructions inside to plant them straight out in the garden, well, you can't they need TLC for the first winter, you know I have only been at this garden for 4 years, and you know the amount of colour that's here, I can't imagine how many chunks of plants I have split and posted to people here, anyway enough said, we will never agree on bringing on our own plants against buying them ready grown. 

Anyone started there cosmos seeds yet?

Cosmos will certainly catch up, I sowed some in June once on Monty Dons advise.

I sowed some yellow and orange ones today.

It's very easy to upload a picture from iPad,

sometimes, if your picture is too big it can take ages to load.

Do you get as far as clicking 'browse' Then selecting from your gallery, when the number has appeared in the select box, you click upload, then give it time. Then click 'save' 

if you have the 'photo Stream' it's best to use that, or your pictures may load upside down.

shout if you need more help.

J Parkers let down

Posted: 17/03/2016 at 13:41

My garden is full of J.Parkers plants, I started of with the little plugs, then took cuttings. The sale stuff is excellent even though you do have to wait a year or two for them to grow on and flower, but in the four years I have been gardening here, you would think those originally tiny plants had been in forever. At those prices I don't mind if I lose a few. all my shrubs were either 1.99 or 2.49. 

i did get let down with my bulb order this year, not really the fault of Parkers, but because the courier couldn't find me! 

They have always answered my emails, usually the same day, the girls are very helpful.
