local B & M has perennials of all sorts at £1 99 or 3 for a fiver. Excellent quality and those I bought have already been repotted. Purchased at this time of year all will grow fast and flower well from early summer
9cm or bigger?
hi verdun,how are you,are you growing any flowers from seed,thats the cheapest way,i also would like to try and sell a few plants,any tips from you,at all.
I always have a gander in B&M for the perennials which are normally in 1 litre pots. Got helenium M beauty from B&M which quite a few forum members have complemented.
Lidl are getting dahlia tuber in next week ( 3 tubers for £2 ) compost / potting compost and other bits in stock as well
I grow a few bedding plants / baskets to sell on to neighbours and clients, nought big just a few tray here and there, I call it garden money instead of beer money. Most people seem to be more interested in plants already flowering.

I see, I see. I brought a clematis from there last year & it did well. I'll have to make a trip into Reading soon then. I wonder if Range are also doing any young perennials, as like you Verdun - I'm too impatient for lots of slow seedlings. http://www.bmstores.co.uk/products/hardy-shrub-plants-179657 Some shrubs here, there's also climbers & fuchsias on the website

99p seeds on B&M website also, not bad at all. I'm sure they'll reward you for your efforts Verd by munching on the slugs that have your new delphiniums in sight

My bargain so far this year has been 6 Allium Christophi bulbs - believe it or not from Wyvale! All coming through beautifully ?
Meant to say they cost 75p in total !
