There are loads of excellent suppliers on the web. Crocus are expensive. Their varieties are limited. I buy from many different sources......received plants today from Border Alpines for example. Excellent service. £2 each for 9cm pots. mail Order trees provided excellent service again recently providing hydrangeas I could never have gotten locally.
Horses for courses too. Ashwoods cannot be beaten for hellebores. Plants for small gardens are brilliant. Jacksons nurseries, Cotswold flowers, Paddock Plants are brilliant. there are helenium specialists providing varieties cheaply, salvia specialists, etc.etc. you can get any plant you want...why settle for the standard run of the mill varieties when such good plants are out there? Buy small plants now and they will grow amazingly quickly over the next 3 months.
type in plants you want and suppliers will appear. Ask us on the forum if these suppliers are good.
