So are these seed companies selling named perennials a big con?
Thanks nut, that makes brilliant sense. i guess it makes sense why plants are priced at what they are, especially named pernnials
hello!! will Nepeta Fassennii grow true to seed? Or Campanula lactiflora? I keep reading that named perennials wont come true. Many thanks
Does anybody know a good supplier of bare root hardy Geraniums? Ideally not at an extorinate rate like T&M and the like charge.
thanks all for the replies. Hedges Direct are selling similar size bare root plants but for £1.30 ish more per plant. I did message the seller and they said that they had purchased too many when planting their hedge last year and had planted these spare plants while they found a place for them but decided they didnt need them hence the sale. Thoughts gardeners??
Its for 35 plants nut
Very true, ive bought plants off ebay before and most have thrived. It's just such a big purchase for me and would be put off if they turned out to be duds. all part of the fun i guess.
Any opinions on this listing on eBay? I'm wanting to plant a hedge and having looked around online, Yew is pretty expensive and these work out cheaper than most. Does the plant look reseaonably healthy to the more experienced eye? Would be good to get a bargain sometime!! http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Bare-Root-Yew-Plants-Taxus-/262687872021?hash=item3d296ad415:g:2PMAAOSwnbZYDN1v
It is yes; it did produce a couple of flowers this year but it is still young, <2 year old. The scent was something else
Is there any specfic pruning needed? it will grow on a south facing wall with shelter from the east winds so hoping it will survive in Derbyshire!!! I have some spare wire so hoping it will be suitable but if wooden trellis is recommended maybe i need to rethink?
