    Thanks Philippa, bulbs they are. They don’t ship to here, hence the roundabout route.

    Parker's send me three rotten lily bulbs...but they duly replaced them with no quibbles...a bit annoying their quality control at dispatch is not good enough but customer service is good @Nollie

    I will just have to keep my fingers crossed they are ok, @amancalledgeorge, thanks.

    Think you'll find it's spam inserted into  Bee's quote @Nollie.

    Ooh, very sneaky! I didn’t spot that, @AnniD - duly flagged.

    "I love a bargain basement plant!
    Two bargains for me today - £1.35 each. "Geranium white to pink" which I suspect is a pelargonium? There are 3 distinct stems - if I divide this plant into 3 and keep it indoors over winter can I expect 3 healthy new plants to put out in spring? Probably easier to keep it indoors as it is then split in the spring."

    It is a Pelargonium. Don't divide it now but in April, you can cut off a decent length of the green stem, put it into sterile compost (or other rooting medium), reduce the leaf surface area, and it should root quite easily providing you dont overwater or feed.

    Hi all, came across the Bosch new rotary tools GRO 12V-35, anyone using? How's the performance?
    Might be best to post your query on the Tools and Techniques thread unless your Bosch is flowering  :)
  • Hi nollie I can also agree that Parker's have excellent customer service, we've had several orders from them 1 was for 2500 bulbs I was probably nit picking to be finding we were 2 bags of 25 tulips short and then found the evidence on the pick order they replaced immediately. We use them a lot but go to the wholesale site if we want bulk
