Hope your plants are okay this morning Lyn - I had a similar boo boo with a large pelargonium that I put out to get some sun recently. Frost has crumpled it back to nought again but I think it'll be okay

I'm obsessed with campanulas at the mo so got latiloba Hidcote Amethyst, also bought a Coreopsis, Veronica, Aconitum royal flush, Astrantia Lola, Polemonium lambrook mauve and an interesting Linaria called Peachy. Also got two more Primulas for my bog garden but that was really just to get the free postage

Hi Lyn,

I thought mine germinated, one or two at a time but they seemed to dissapear while quite tiny. I don't know if there was something in the pot but the same thing happened with some of Nut's foxgloves...a couple of those have since come up though...

I was happy with the service.

As I stated, I purchased other plants at the same time and have had no problems.

If you have had bad service from any companies then you can rate them as you wish.

Two more nominations for good guy awards, for excellent customer service:

I had two plants fail over winter, a bare root from JParkers and a perennial from Hayloft.

Both companies responded immediately and politely and without question agreed to replace the plants. I have received a nice new bare root from Parkers already and Hayloft are sending me a 3 pack as a replacement even though only one failed.

I should add the other plants I bought from both companies are all doing fine

Anyone done any gardening today?
