Mail Order - Perennials

I'm looking for a good mail order website that I can get perennials from, I have a large border to fill and I'm at work 6 days a week so rarely get out to a garden centre. I've seen a number of sites now with rediculous prices (over ??10 for a 1 litre pot) Just need some help now as I'm sure there is someone out there that knows of a good quality and reasonably priced site. By the way I refuse to use crocus as had some bad experiences with them sorry. Please help as im getting fed up of weeding my empty border now. Thanks Guys

    why not go for seed? Much cheaper and more variety. Ask around, you might end up getting some free.

    If you're prepared to grow them on a bit, then I have always been pleased with Hayloft.

    i have bought some from Hayloft, not bad at all, all my original Penstemons came from there, I dare not mention J.Parkers, people will come down on me like a ton of bricks, but when I started my huge garden I couldn't afford anything else. So Hayloft and Parkers special offers were all I bought.

    Me too Lynimage. Now I have full borders I can afford to be more selective, but when I was starting it was special offers or nowtimage  5 years on and some of those special offers have become my garden stalwartsimageimage

  • Thanks guys,

    I'm definitely going to check mailorderperennials out, that price sounds too good to refuse a look at. I'm really big on the deliver cost as I hate it when they hide it until the last minute when your about to check out, and 48 hours that's very quick.

    Thanks Lyn for Parkers and hayloft I'll have a look at them as well

    Keep the suggestions coming because this is really beneficial to other people as well I'm sure
  • The passion from everyone here is certainly very positive

    I've heard of paddocks before and they are definitely very reasonable prices. Other members of my family use them a lot. I've just got a large space to fill so want to guarantee a good price from a number of sites.

    I may end up going to the local garden centre if I get the time as they're often cheaper, I just don't have a lot of free time at the moment
