Golden elm are not fast growers.

I think £15.00 each sound a very good price.

Bluebells

This link by the Natural History museum may help.

It shows the 3 main contenders.

English blue bell...... Hyacintha non scripta...

Spanish bluebell ....Hyacinthoides hispanica

 and a cross between the two...Hyacinthoides x massartiana.

The colour of the pollen will help you to decide.

Sorry Emma your link does not work for me.

A weed or something nice?

The shops that sell these in the autumn are selling old dry  bulbs...which never do very well.

Treat yourself to a pot in flower, from a garden centre in the spring.

They will seed around and spread.

A gorgeous plant for any garden in the spring.

 

Red Flowered Trilliums...

I trust that in Scarborough Ontario it is the same as UK... ILLEGAL to dig any wild flower up from the wild.

A good guide to plant conservation world wide is...

"TAKE ONLY MEMORIES, LEAVE ONLY FOOTSTEPS"

 

Long Acre Plants in Wiltshire sell Trilliums.

Also many other shade loving specialities.

They do mail order.

All plants are grown on the nursery, they are strong healthy plants.

They grow all Trilliums from seed .

From seed to flowering takes years, so no Trillium is ever cheap.

Recommended!
