Where's me plants? :-(
After a rather traumatic summer I decided to treat myself to some serious planting for the garden. So I went a bit mad using J Parkers online ordering.
It did say that delivery would be throughout October and November but it’s now December and probably too frosty now to plant them if they arrive! I have emailed them but they can’t give me an exact date, I just hope they aren’t festering in the back of some delivery van somewhere!
I had a bad experience with them via Guardian Garden Centre a couple of years back, so I’m hoping this won’t be the same and that ordering directly from them will be better. My freebies arrived about a month ago, some tulip bulbs and scabious and clematis plants that looked in need of tlc. I’ve planted them into pots and put them in a sheltered spot in the hope this recent bought of frost and snow doesn’t do the poor things in.
The worst of it is I left my bulbs to be planted alongside the plants I’ve ordered, so I don’t dig them up, now it may be too late to put the bulbs in, unless we have a warmer spell.
Not looking good so far, the forecast in -2 tonight and snow! Boo.
