No Sam. Don't just stick to Crocus. ,there are so many excellent plant suppliers out there. Crocus is average...good but average.
There will always be some satisfied customers with Parkers, T & M, etc., but a huge number of unhappy ones. They supply tiny bare root things and they are not cheap. By and large these companies are RUBBISH ....with due respect to those who are satisfied customers. They are fine for seeds, bulbs etc but that's all
I buy most plants online now. Excellent quality large plants that can often go straight into the garden and look good immediately or soon.
dicentras delivered today are in flower.....almost there anyway. Hardened off but I always protect slightly for a day or two to make sure. I now have white dicentra flowering with hellebores, blue pulmonaria, dadodills, as though it has always been there.
check out the "good guys" thread. If there are certain plants you want ask us here. Many dedicated plantsman suppliers out there
