You know how to show a girl a good time Dove
It's good to know I'm in good company Chicky, mine were bare rooted Blue Boa I think it would have been better if I had potted them up first (as per Verdun's advice) rather than putting them straight in the garden but everything else has been ok. Will certainly let you know if, and when, they appear.
First shoot from my new Dahlias has appeared. Another 3 to go.
Just had a delivery of bare rooted rose 'For Your Eyes Only', it was on offer for £3.99 from T&M so wasn't expecting much. It was a good sized rose about 3ft from root tip to top, with good roots but it does look sorry for itself and arrived in a plastic bag and a large padded envelope. Have got the roots soaking at the moment. Will find somewhere for it later. Had hoped to put it in a container but the roots seem too big for the container I had in mind so will have to rethink.
