Buying online

Posted: 08/02/2016 at 15:32

ProfCool

I wholeheartedly recommend buying plants online.  The Good Guys thread needs to be updated I think but some good suppliers there.

I buy loads of plants...95% on line.

the advantages of buying online......wider choice of plants (Garden centres stock only well known or common varieties); better prices even including postage charges but you do need to check and compare sizes and prices.  Online suppliers are geared up these days to providing almost immediate delivery

I buy varieties that are pretty new.  Many new varieties are so much better than the older ones.  New varieties are appearing all the time now.  

I suggest if there are certain plants you are interested in you post on the forum and we can help you choose or make suggestions

HELLO FORKERS! part two

Top wind speed recorded today was 81 mph so far.  Our one and only train line is closed because of a fallen tree on the track. An articulated (very clever ) lorry has blown over, and loads of debris everywhere.  Sunny right now and dry but those pesky winds are not abating.

Jekyl, I am talking about the PANICULATA ...the PG's......hydrangeas.  The description said Butterfly a variety of paniculata. 

Paniculatas are pruned hard as you like or less according to how big you want your flowers to be.  Your macrophyllas just need old flower heads removed as you say.  Cut to the ground and you will lose the flowers this year

Hiya Cranlan.  Warm welcome 

would you ???

no contest Steve.  Get rid of that poor imitation of grass.  if growing well and looking good I would always have grass in my garden but what you have is hard work for an ugly looking spot.

you have shade....is it dry shade (those oaks) or damp shade?  put some beautiful plants there to give you pleasure all year round with some individual specials to lift your spirits.
