Thanks HJH I did get Splish Splash, was bidding on a beautiful Geum pink, whe
n the price reached £12 I was out of there, I did buy 5 plants for £12. postage was extra.
Do you buy from anyone else on ebay?

Bargain! well done you i would'nt pay that sort of price just for one either...would have to be gold plated! lol yes quite a few, i am also quite friendly with Martin from Eleplants do you know him? and Michael from garden2expert..he dose a lot of roses and ~Rhododenrons, fact all of my rhodo collection i bought from him and i have some really nice ones, although some of the colours are not the same as the pic's but really lovely so i have had no complaints with him. i have used direct plants before now and had mixed experinces - i got my large Acer tree from is lovely but the comunication is just not there - which is fine if you don't have a problem....if you do it's a case of return the your own expense and i might ...if your lucky give you a refund...minus the postage cost of course..which i don't really think is good enough...maybe because sooo big?...if i get a complaint myself...not that i really do, ;-) but i would just refund or replace, depending on situation, cirtainly would start quoting terms and conditions etc, - ofcourse i don't advertise that but in general that is what i would do. what about you, who else do you use?

Only Joan at the moment, and Parkers online, and sometimes Homebase, oh yes and have used Humpfreys for bulbs, but will try Martin if you think he is good.

15 May, 2009


yes he is very good, and i use all of the above too.

Nice picture. I have a Jack frost & a Looking Glass Brunnera. I'm looking for people that have shade gardens and looks like you might be one of them. We seem to have special problems. Like, something has been eating my Brunnera and I don't know what to do about it. Any suggestions?

Hi Valerie , snails and slugs love them, so, I would imagine that could be the answer to your problem.................glad you like the picture.
