Buying on-line - tips?
After quite a lot of searching I think I've found the right shrub for a tricky spot I have free. It's a Camellia Cornish Snow.
However, it doesn't seem overly common and certainly none of my local garden centres stock it. I have found a few options on-line with with Burncoose looking a likely option.
A couple of questions:
There is no height information on the product, only a pot size. Are there any rule-of-thumb indications of what I can expect? I guess you could pretty much have any size plant in a 2L pot so that description is not particulalry hepful.
Obviously there is also a delivery charge (£13.50) to consider which starts making this option a little expensive. Do you think one of the local garden centres would be prepared to order one in or is that likely to be a no-go? I'm guessing they would also want to pass on any delivery charges although I was hoping that might get 'lost' if they ordered it as part of one of their regular bulk orders? Do they do this sort of thing?
So, any pointers or ideas, or even suggestions of a suitable supplier (I have no idea whether Burncoose are good, bad or indifferent) would be great.
