Only £3 ! wow, you did do well ! I love the colour Shirley !

Lol Sandra ... we paid a visit to a new supermarket today ... the flowers and plants were just inside the entrance and Michael loves Acers so I couldn't resist this one! It's going to live in a pot until it's grown up a bit ... :o)

Rose ... lots of folk on GoY know my aversion to the colour Orange ... but this isn't 'Jaffa' so I'll grow to love it ... :o)

I didn't mention the orange bit,Shirley,as I thought you had asserted your woman's privilege of changing your mind..:o) ..

8 Apr, 2013

 

Oh congratulations, good find!

8 Apr, 2013

 

LOL, Sandra ... :o)

Lulu - I've seen a few Goyers have this one and it looks fabulous in their photos - perhaps this will in a couple of years.

That's a great price, think I will visit morrisons tomorrow! I have orange dream, it's a really pretty one!

Beautiful acer, bit surprised it's already in leaf though, round here none of the trees are in leaf yet.

8 Apr, 2013

 

Nice one Shirley, fantastic price.

8 Apr, 2013

 

I haven't dared buy one yet because of the high winds here. I just have to admire everyone else's or go to Westonbirt!

8 Apr, 2013

 

Thanks all - it is currently in the GH as it would be too big a shock to be outdoors yet - I shall have to find a lovely pot for it.

8 Apr, 2013

 

Mine has been in the garden for maybe four years? It's just showing the leaf buds now.

8 Apr, 2013

 

This is a lovely Acer Shirley....good luck with it...:>)

8 Apr, 2013

 

Just realised its the same one that I have, bought last year. It is in the greenhouse like yours as they don't like the cold winds. It is budding up now.

Sticki, hope it looks great for you this year.

Thanks, Motty ... :o)

Cinders, great minds think alike ... lol!

As it's such a small specimen, I think it needs the shelter of the GH for some time yet. Now, if we were to get warmer weather, I would let it out for part of the day!

thanks shirley, i hope so too, its quite big now! [my morrisons didnt have any today! :-(]

9 Apr, 2013

 

Oh that's a shame, Sticki - there were lots of fruit bushes as well yesterday - keep trying though - a delivery may be on the way to your local store as we speak!

9 Apr, 2013

 

yes they had the fruit trees, aldi is almost opposite, i tried there too but only fruit trees and primroses!

its on the way home from work so no big problem to call in!

9 Apr, 2013

 

nice buy!

9 Apr, 2013

 

We grow this, it is a beauty, it is now a medium tree!! and it was smaller than yours lol

9 Apr, 2013

 

Thanks Paul ... it's so small but has potential!

Ooh, that's good to hear, Dotty ... it's in a bigger pot now but continues to live in the GH at night ... like nurturing a baby ... lol!

11 Apr, 2013

 

I know, what we do for our plants lol I will post a pic when Orange Dream opens properly...

11 Apr, 2013

 

Definitely a bargain...you are becoming mrs supashoppa Shirley!

17 Apr, 2013

 

I shall look out for it, Dotty.

Yes indeed, Karen - it has already grown a couple of inches ... :o)

17 Apr, 2013

 

i have this shirley, slower growing than the red ones, but think mine survived winter :o)

18 Apr, 2013

 

So amenable growing a couple of inches already!

18 Apr, 2013

 

That's good news, San ... I have found just the right pot for it ... and it's going to stay in there until it's all growed-up!

Indeed, Lulu - pretty good for a supermarket buy ... :o)

18 Apr, 2013

 

It is almost there, tomorrow might be just the time to take a pic.....

Do you have the Morries supermarket nearby, Carole? It's not one I shop in often, but I have bought some real plant bargains from there.

2 May, 2013

 

Sadly we havent a Morrisons nearby, Sandras always telling me about the bargains to be had there, think I will have to give her a shopping list and my cheque book lol

2 May, 2013

 

No ... she would fill up too many trollies!

5 May, 2013

 

lol ;0)

5 May, 2013

 

Just posted a photo to show how this has grown in a year .....

7 Apr, 2014

 

Its looking great Shirley, I did manage to get one last year but it isnt looking as healthy as yours, but hopefully it will start to grow when we eventually get some sunshine;0)

7 Apr, 2014

 

Carole, it's sunny now, but chilly in the wind ... fingers crossed for some warm days soon. :o)
