Seasonal Pot problems
I am new to GW (I got a subscription for my Birthday in March). Already my garden is looking much improved. A better lawn, a new border and I have just planted some bulbs for the first time ever - and looking forward to seeing them come up in the spring (hopefully!). I was somewhat disappointed when I decided to have a go at planting up the seasonal pot (page 13) in this months issue. I got to our large local garden centre and couldn't find many of the plants mentioned. There was a very large white flowering heather for about £9.99 and a mixed tray of 8 small hebes for £10.99 which included one like the picture. There were also some Heuchera's (again for about £9.99) but no Phormium's (only simply massive ones) or Carex. Nothing seemed the right size and everything was very expensive and too big. I ended up purchasing a ready planted container for £14.99 and I plan to swap the plants to by window box - which seems somewhat defeatist, but a cheaper alternative and the plants are the right size. I will reuse the container to plant some bulbs - so I guess i am being somewhat enterprising . . . just wondered if other people had the same problem?
