I purchased several gooseberries, a black, a white and a pink currents on ebay all excellent
But my best buy less than a fiver plus postage for three red current bushes I only wanted one but purchased the three and planted two gave one away these were great bare rooted plants all two to over three foot high and i would guess two year old plants had flowers with in a week (only a few) then berries.
This year my plants are all growing well.
I have also purchased seeds on Ebay and all the sellers have been amazing and I have got some really good non main stream items for less than mainstream items in the seed catalogues.
I purchased plants or seeds last year on Ebay from directplants, gardeningrussell and elfskins_edibles all of whom provided an excellent service and are still trading. Will not recommend suppliers that have only tried for the first time this year as do not know how seeds etc will fare once planted.
None of the seed or plant sellers are local to me everything came through the post and was packed well and healthy.
Hope this helps
