Buying plants on ebay

Posted: 22/04/2013 at 23:56

I bought walking onions on ebay a little while ago, and they were killed off by the sudden severe weather. i would not have bothered, but the seller  cavens9460, had stated they were fully hardy. Clearly this was wrong, and they sets I had purchased from another seller are doing amazingly well. Unfortunately I was just out of the 45 day time limit, so had no way to open a case, but I mailed cavens9460, and asked him to point out that the plants are frost tender, only to get abuse back. I attempted to buy more so that I could leave fresh feedback and cavens9460 was able to cancel the sale. Buyers beware. Protect your plants until the frosts are finished

Choosing plant for birds

Cotoneaster is listed as invasive, so if you are in a rural situation its better not to plant, the birds spread the seed. Mountain Ash can be pruned and coppiced, will have berries, and can grow on little soil. Its not evergreen, but the bark is very attractive

Orange Hawkweed (Hieracium auantiacum)

it is a non native plant,  colonates to a point of monoculture. It seem to be spreading through north wales. Kill it on sight, easiest to just pull it out
