A couple of years ago we ordered 3 border selections for a new section of the garden and they were extremely successful. We did loose a few of the 72 plants, but thought that was only to be expected. This year I bought several items at the beginning of the summer and had varying degrees of success. None of the lilies grew, nor the delphiniums or the begonia corms and a couple of the shrubs were extremely small, although they are growing slowly. I emailed Parkers about the failures and received an email by return saying that they had dispatched replacements which duly arrived in a couple of days. Unfortunately they sent hollyhocks instead of delphiniums, but they did grow, 4 of the 5 replacement lilies grew but the begonias were very poor. Not sure whether to order from them again or not!
