Anyone know anywhere selling cheap tubers. Everywhere I look they cost a lot to post more than the tuber and I only want a couple.
Aldi, Poundland, Wilkinsons GW offers,all do tubers and if you treat them properly they usually come up well in the first year, better in the second.
My local Wilkinsons has tubers for sale for £1.00 I bought three even though I have loads already. The tubers I bought were good quality although obviously not huge. Last spring Crocus had tubers in their sale at a very reasonable cost....all grew very well and are fine in storage, I checked my tubers earlier today.
I might pop down and have a look I am wanting a bishop of llandaff and a bishop of oxford along with some decorative ones and some gladioli. Thanks for the replys
I had given up on dahlias because i can't overwinter the tubers - they all rot on me, even after all the effort of digging them up, washing them off, drying them and storing them in a cool frost free place. If i ordered the tubers now, or bought them from GC, can i put them straight into compost, or do i have to find somewhere to store them til April ??
B&Q have tubers in two packets for a fiver and two tubers a pack
I would say yes chicky buy now and plant in March/April most of the tubers are dry and is dry compost in there packets
have a look at this man fantastic and plenty of tips on growing
