Who`s a reliable mail order plant supplier

Posted: 23/05/2014 at 08:12

There are several lesser known but excellent on line suppliers, superior to crocus in my opinion, that have been mentioned here and on other threads.  It means plants that hitherto may have seemed uncontainableavailable ore widely available.  

My local GC ....a well known national chain.....seems more limited on range of plants supplied.  It's "click and collect" service ...designed to secure desired plants for customers......is poor.  Good on line suppliers are willing and able to provide this service

Morning everyone. 

Dry for mo .......

Checked on plants that were eaten by slugs and they are recovering well.  

Visiting a friend taken into hospital a few days ago who had emergency colonoscopy.  So far she is far from well.  She is also a lupus sufferer with all,the associated issues that brings.  Life needs to,be taken day by day, doesn't it?

Re geum totally Tamgerine dreams and totally Tamgerine, I cannot see too much of a difference.  First plant was Dreams and others have been Totally Tamgerine.  Since they grow in different parts of the garden it's hard to distinguish but they both put out  those long wiry stems of lovely orange flowers.  Get whichever you can.

Not a great day although fine and bright now.  

Anybody wanting a splash of orange in his/her garden check out geum Tangerine Dreams.  I have 5 clumps around the garden and they are providing superb "see through" delicate little orange flowers on wiry stems.  Been flowering for a month or more but last year flowered forever,,even during the winter.  They form large clumps, seem resistant to slugs, and lift the whole garden.  They complement blues, reds, yellows as well as green foliage. 

My mum enjoyed her day at Day Centre.  I thought they were places where old people were "dumped" and catered only for their existence.  HOw wrong was I?  Happy, lively, stimulating and embracing ....did my mum a power of good.  

Dahliettes.....?

Yes, you got it in one Nut.  Just a couple of quid. Think they are awful, actually, and they jar anywhere I want to put them.  Think I'll give them away.   Or maybe in a terracotta pot in the shade perhaps!
