Thought the same,Sticki.Just seen them on GW!

11 May, 2012

 

Yes. I love how colourful they are, but so dear.

They are lovely and you can grow them inside too. I've never grown one though. We need to keep our eyes peeled for them in Morrisons... lol - they seem to be selling such a lot of good plants at low prices this year!

11 May, 2012

 

me too but i also saw them at malvern today and spoke to that lady who was on GW

I love Morrison's ... They were getting a slating on Radio4 the other morning...No one mentioned the Plants!

11 May, 2012

 

why did they get a slating?

11 May, 2012

 

Not selling the right products...It was the yearly proffits

Fantastic Fish and Butchers sections...and the Plants are great.

if you ask me the press like to have a go at anyone or anything, they will probably go through all the supermarkets!!!

i think thats an unfair criticism. its nearly impossible to predict exactly what is needed.

i must get one of these, been promising myself for too long now, great pic Pims...

11 May, 2012

 

I shop in all of them for different things Sticki...

11 May, 2012

 

You can do better than £20. though SL...Does Meanie grow these?

11 May, 2012

 

i'm not sure if he does Pims, yes £20 is a bit excessive isn't it....

11 May, 2012

 

i mainly shop in one of them but i may be biased!!! and i get a discount!!!!

for plants i use morrisons though.

11 May, 2012

 

Its a gorgeous one.........

it is abutilon seen them at B&Q and was on Gardeners' world last night - I am getting one they're great and supposed to flower all year in milder winters

abutilon megapotamicum

12 May, 2012

 

Me too. Didn't realise they were fairly hardy.

12 May, 2012

 

I like it :)

12 May, 2012

 

It was covered in flowers Paul..

12 May, 2012

 

i agree, lovely but expensive :o)

12 May, 2012

 

£20 is far too much!!
I did grow one, but it only proved to be fairly hardy (not very hardy)!
I have one Abutilon in bud that I've grown from seed - it stands fully 10cm tall!

13 May, 2012

 

The price is similar here - 17,90 Euros.

13 May, 2012

 

Well I think Morrisons is great, abutilons or no abutilons. I wish we had one here! Isn't that where I bought those super spotty mugs, Sticki? I wish I'd bought more, now.

13 May, 2012

 

You bought mugs as well G..?
Either very good at packing or very large cases.

13 May, 2012

 

Bought one in a peachy colour last year reduced to £7 and it flowered right up until November and it has survived the winter has lots of new shoots and yesterday at The Range found another one in yellow reduced to £4.99 I loved them :)

13 May, 2012

 

I would have them at that price Nana d. Well done you.

13 May, 2012

 

You have no idea quite how good at packing I am, Pims, I have practised it a bit, though. It took me three days to unpack everything! It was like 3 Christmas mornings rolled into one. Plants, seeds, bulbs, goodies to eat and drink, (joints of lamb and packs of sausages, cheddar cheese, smoked fish and bacon, spices and mango chutney) books, dvds, clothes, medicines, paints, Christmas cards, makeup, post, bedding, a bathmat, a kettle, plantfood, etc., etc.............oh yes, AND the mugs, but no Abutilon, sadly.
