J Parkers let down

You 're right Rosemummy, service is good, I always have emails answered straight away, but I thought Sunday pm was brilliant.

Put them close together because they are tiny, I grow them in window boxes. But put them in the ground close and they will be fine. Put them close to the house so you can see them, you dont want to go out in the snow go see them!

J Parkers let down

Posted: 25/08/2014 at 18:58

I placed an order with Parkers, around the start of August, couldnt remember when, and somehow deleted the confirmation email, so I didnt know what I had ordered. I sent them an email at 3pm yesterday, Sunday, and by 3.30 the copy of the confirmation email was in my inbox, service or what?

And I know I will have to nurture the plugs over winter but by the late Spring they will be out and flowering by summer.

I know a lot of people like the instant garden, but I am happy to nurture for a while and get them for almost free. 

I have beautiful shrubs, huge, that I planted in spring 2012, fantastic flowering, all 1.99 in their sale.

For me, 

I couldnt buy from the GC , I need to put plants  in groups of 5 or six or they would be lost in this garden, Parkers fits the bill for me everytime.

Wish list for seed and plant swap

Not sure if I have any but will look next time I can take a stroll around, its so wet at the moment, but the good thing is that the new pond is now completely full with rain water!.

Personally I am not that keen on black flowers, I like the flashy ones!

I found the garlic spray worked but only for a short time, you need to apply every 3 or 4 days.

Hever castle and Batemans, in fact there are so many lovely houses and gardens in Kent, I wouldnt like to say which is the best. I used to live in the Weald and was always out somewhere.

You could pick them off and put them on the cabbages then, no doubt they would stay there
