I would like to add my name to the growing disappointment of GW readers who cannot access the special offer, GW 616.  Whatever permutation you try you just get through to the T & M website with no clues there on how to proceed.  GW go to T & M who say that it works (the same reaction when I went to them directly) but it DOESN'T.  Come on!  The special offers are a great attraction but not much use if they cannot be accessed: with the added cost of postage, this should be possible.

    Perhaps the old fashioned stamp and envelope is easier. Just received my two free Clematis from last months offer, no prob. Just got to find somewhere to plant them now!

    This looks like a good offer, will they flower this year?

    Yes - they are large plug plants, not bare roots.

    Sent off for mine online had no problems getting the offer I just typed the web address as you see it in the magazine, just waiting for them to arrive.

    Yes, plugs around 2-3inches. Should grow well once potted up. I cut my others back almost to the ground every year and they are a couple of feet already. Think i'll put one to climb up near front door. Not sure about the other?

    I have now ordered these plants, you say potted up can I not plant them straight in to the garden? Which one is a climber?

    @joslow - AllotmentMax got confused when someone mentioend Clematis which was an offer a few mags back. You can pot the plug plants straight out. T&M send them via Jersey so they will take a while (avoid VAT!). The offer this month is <span class="season">

    Delphinium Pacific Giants

    Digitalis Excelsior

    Echinacea Primadonna

    Geum Mrs Bradshaw

    Lavender Hidcote

    Penstemon Tubular Bells

    None of those are climbers. <span class="season">Penstemon is not frost hardy but is perennial so all will grow back (apart from Lavender of course which does not die back - Hidcote makes a great border hedge plant)
