Online plant suppliers?

Posted: 29/11/2015 at 17:29

Jools,,used gardening express once.  Would not use them again. perhaps you were just lucky.

there is a thread about good online suppliers .....I use several.  Online suppliers are far better than gc' can get exactly the plants you want.  Gc's usually stock the standard fayre and their prices are often very,,very high now.  Check out local nurseries too

Philippa, you are right.  3 weeks and then the mild mid winter comes heralding an early warm spring heralding a scorching summer.......

cut grass again.  It hasn't stopped growing.  Potted up a few alliums.  Swept up a few leaves.  Breezy but spells of sunshine and fairly far.  Forecast saying rain and strengthening winds. 

I think my garden has blown away !!!

Laura, often the wind does do just that so when you see a pile sweep them up.  

I cut my grass today and in the process the mower picked up leaves etc.  

Sad day......
