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

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.
