Thanks Dove that's great help it is going in my proposed new herb garden which isn't on a slope so if I give it extra grit should that be ok?

Hi Punkdoc it was a gamble I was willing to take as the plants were in a closing down sale priced to sell from a National Trust garden centre here that was closing down - I have all the pots cuddled together surrounded in fleece - and they were in an outside area of the garden centre that was not so well protected.......

Advice would be greatfully appreciated

Hi Nutcutlet they are all sat outside and were outside when I bought them and we are fortunate here that the soil is very damp but not water logged - if I plant them after work tomorrow evening and then give them a dressing of manure this weekend fingers crossed all should be ok?

Edd - The one Rosemary is looking really sad for herself very pale don't think looking at her she would last till April......(she is a good 20" high) so would be sad to lose her

Hi

A couple of weeks ago I purchased some healthy potted plants from a garden centre that was unfortunately closing down. They have been sat waiting patiently to go into the soil - I am itching to get them in and was sorely tempted yesterday with the sunny day we had here in Thame wondered if it is safe to go ahead or should I wait another couple of weeks they are:Rosemary really large bushes (one is starting to look pale) - Hardy Spring Flowering Broom- Agapanthus - Miscanthus Zebra (I have trimmed back last years dead leaves that were around 18" in height - Advice would be greatly appreciated Many thanks Ann

Where is the best place to look for information on ferns?

Posted: 06/02/2014 at 17:16

Hi

I am beginning a fernery and found Bowden's to be brilliant. I received their catalogue which was excellent really informative and then emailed them with the area size and what ferns from their collection I thought could work. They called me to discuss it through with more suggestions and am now waiting my delivery for the end of Feb - would thoroughly recommend them - First Class service

......the good guys

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....
