GW offer.

7 comments


I don’t normally go for the ‘free’ (pay over a fiver in postage) offers in GW, but this month they are offering 9 hardy Fuchsias. So, thinking of my hedge, I ordered two collections and they arrived yesterday.

18 lovely healthy plug plants. I watered them and left them all together in this pot to get acclimatised.

Then today I potted them all up so they can grow on until the autumn, when I will plant them in front of my hedge.

The varieties are ‘Hawkshead’ (white flowers with green tinge) ‘Amy Nurse’ (Purple and red flowers) and ’Delta’s Sarah’ (Blue and white flowers, semi-double). P.14 on your GW magazine, May edition.

They look very healthy might have to order some, I have a couple on my hill doing well and space for a couple more.
Did your hellebores come Karen? Mine arrived last week on a very rainy day so I got soaked planting them, nice little plants too :-)

As it's never been hardy with me.

Healthy plants.

Thanks for the tip Kathy. I'll try it in a sheltered spot then.

Kathy, yes, they came ages ago. I planted them in the winter, and so far have only lost one. :)) I wonder if they will flower next yer...it's not looking like it at the moment.

Looks like you did well there Karen.

They're good little plants aren't they. I ordered a set a few weeks back and they arrived yesterday. I was surprised and very pleased at just how big they were. I've got them all potted up now in the greenhouse :-)

Hope yours do well for you.
