Ordering Garden Plants

Post by Im_not_Robbie_Blake » Wed Apr 01, 2020 6:02 pm

For those looking for plants but unsure where to find any now that garden centres are closing....A friend has told me that a company called Dobies are still offering mail orders and deliveries. Their website says deliveries will now be 7 to 10 days. I have placed my order!

We use Thompson and Morgan. About 1000 plugs this year.

Gardening express has many special offers. Normal prices can be expensive.

Another one for Jersey Plants. I've delayed delivery in the hope it will warm up a little by the end of the month-early May.

I used Crocus plants on a number of occasions when I lived in the UK...always good quality and well packaged but not the cheapest
