Hi I dont live to far away in Rossendale but I can think of anywhere that sells bareroot shrubs. 

There is a wholesale cash and carry in Burnley called park lane plants but I never been so I can say if they sell bareroot. Could try springwood nursery near townley park or Gordon riggs if all else fails.

If I was you I buy online, posted shouldn't be to dear with bareroot plants and you can shop around a bit.  

Anyone done any gardening today?

Potted on pelargoniums seedling and odd fuchsia. Checked delephiniums to see if need potting on, found slugs and eggs in pots  so checked lupins more slug eggs, sorted them out. And my cold frame was partly flooded so had to move that .

what are you use the bricks for, to make it taller for head room? Your GH should have a integrated metal base around the bottom, otherwise you will be making a unnecessary step

Big no on the cosmos, Lupins Russell mix are sown about April but I cant see much harm sowing early it up to you though. Lupins Gallery are perfectly fine to sow now.

I sow a few seeds today - Echinops Rito - Aquilegia green apples / nora barlow - verbena desert jewels - dianthus superbus mix - cup and saucer -  passion flower. I bring them all into the house, some into propagator others on bright south facing windowsill
