New Trees

Posted: 15/11/2013 at 17:06

Would like to mention Mail Order Trees an online company based in Ely Cambs. Received 2 lovely 7ft Rowans, excellently packed with full planting instructions. Really healthy young trees. Delivered for £9.95 by a courier who was helpful on the day of my choice. The trees were well priced as well at £29.99 each.... They were an Ebay company and all their reviews gave them 100% customer feedback and satisfaction.. Would fully recommend....

I found J Parkers a nightmare, plants didnt arrive telephoned and had a really rude woman answer the phone who wasnt interested told me to email them - I did to cancel and asked for a credit, received a very curt email reply obviously the company is so well off they dont need customer service.

Re-ordered with TM and had good service....

Hi hope this doesnt appear a silly question - but when do I plant young herbs (rosemary and thyme) I have prepared a herb border in a sheltered spot near the kitchen and have seen young plants at the local market WI stand can I plant now or wait till spring?

Bird feeders

My feeder is being ignored but more worrying is we are seeing around 6 resident magpies and dozens of crows and no sparrows or tits -

Serious stuff......no! Really

Bulb Confusion

Posted: 16/10/2013 at 18:08

Hello - I am getting a little confused when bulbs should be planted - I was under the impression that it was always best in mid October? I have ordered bulbs from Thompson Morgan and GW and they are due to arrive sometime in November (both lots were ordered in September and I was under the impression they would arrive this month) - when emailing Thompson Morgan asking for a more specific date I was informed sharply by them that bulbs are planted late November - this has made me more than slightly confused they are narcissus and tulips from GW am I going mad should it be this month and if planted so late will they survive or if the snow arrives as predicted will they rot as I've left it so late - sorry to go on so much but I genuinely am confused......
