  • Well done - you just added a bit more fuel ;)
    Unfortunately the Potting Shed is not immune either.

    It's very brown. What would you do with it? I cant think of much that would go with it.
    In London. Keen but lazy.

    I think yellows and oranges would look good with it - especially late summer/early autumn. Daisy type plants - heleniums etc, and things like crocosmias. Whites too - like echinaceas. 

    The only thing i'd say is - I seem to remember that site being shown to be a bit poor, but don't quote me on that. If I could find that thread about the Good Guys - it may have been on that...

  • About to say the same as Fairy - could be a goodie at £5 but I'd like to see it in the flesh before handing over my money.

    I'm sorry... You would have to pay me to have that Photinia in my garden! 'Crunchy' indeed, it looks diseased!

    It's also not really a bargain. That site looks overpriced across the board.
  • Well, that's sorted that out then :D

    There are some online retailers who do supply what they promise but away from them,it's always a gamble.

    IME, "Bargains" are best picked up where you can actually see them and assess the possibilities.

    Deffo not a bargain but I'm sure someone must've understood what I was trying to do ;)
    Tried and tested method on various threads - not always successful :D

    A matter of Evolution - takes a bit of time.  My mouth is firmly zipped - hopefully :p  Hope that's the right emoji
