Plants by posts
Hi, the weather has been a little kinder here recently which has put me more in the mood for gettng on with all the myriad jobs in the garden.
Also, the plants that I ordered earlier in the month have started to arrive in dribs and drabs.
Some of you will have read my drone, sorry I mean blog, about how one is never quite sure what size of plant you are buying from the catalogue companies unless they specify the size in the text, which some of them don’t. Sometimes this can lead to real disappointment.
So I thought it useful if we buy something from the catalogues and it is really good then we can recommend it to others, and conversely if we have been really disappointed with a plant and the company has not acted fairly then we can also mention that as well.
So, to start the ball rolling as it were, I can say that the wee Auricula primulas that I ordered from BloomingDirect in Jersey arrived today in the post. Sturdy wee plugs well packaged. When I potted them up into 9cm plants they looked just the job. So thumbs up to BD, Jersey. I have irises and aconites to come from them as well so I shall keep you informed.
