It's not rocket science to work out that you order two. :{
It's also not rocket science to work out that this is cheaper than two of the others.
I'm not a rocket scientist, but i do recall some of the maths i learned at school. In those days, £5.67 was less than £8.95. 2 x 36p + £4.95 postage = £5.67.
"Please note that this offer is limited to one pack per order at this special price. This offer cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer or with promotional vouchers. Hurry, offer ends midnight Wednesday 6th April or while stock lasts."
Therefore it's 2 * (0.36+4.95).

Items refunded again, so small result, no baskets but nice profit!
I received mine and so did my Nan. I didn't receive any updates on my order or delivery day though.
Just checked on my delivery and found that all my order has been cancelled no reason given and no email sent, money was refunded but nothing to tell me why? Terrible customer service.
Received my hanging baskets today. The baskets were cracked - anyone else had the same experience?
Payment returned, no reason given, 2 orders.

I've had these before, they don't really like the English climate and tend to broaden out too much.


Which part of England?
Watch out for this little fella.

http://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/profile?PID=492

I'm amazed the RHS haven't mentioned Italian Cypress as one of it's targets, but it does attack Italian Cypress. The country is full of Leyland Cypress hedges with large dead blotches on them and people put it down to frost or drought or all sorts of things, but they're wrong. It's almost all down to my acquaintence, the Cypress Aphid (Cinara cupressivora).
Great find, order placed :)

I think I got yo the same 50p sale at b&q and yeah I cleaned them out also lol :). Love a bargain!!

I am deeply envious of your Delphinus you have -I have way to many slugs and snails for them to grow! Scabious also!! Lovely-I always loose mine. I have very free draining soil so everything gets very dry-I NEED to get the bark I bought last year on them! Huge amount of weeding to do first! :S

Your basket looks great! One thing to do now -keep it watered! That's what I forget to do.

I called up about my perennial plugs are they say delivery may now? Not sure why as so e already gave theirs I believe??

Oh we'll gives me more time to prepare? Yeah right! Lol

You'll have to let me know if you find any other sales at B&Q as I don't have a homebase nearby :(

Don't be envious of my Delphiniums, they didn't last long! I put two in the ground and they haven't came up again this year, though I put one in a pot which has came up and looks healthy. The slugs must have had them, same with the scabious, they look a bit, erm, "scabby" this year lol which is a shame as the bees absolutely loved them!

I also have tonnes of slugs, I use trial and error, if anything eats them in the ground, I'll lift it up and put them in pots, with copper tape on, it seems to stop them quite well. They go for my hostas and carnations like ice cream on a hot day!

I have heavy clay soil, which turns to rock in summer, like you I have to use bark to keep the moisture in, and I've started digging in organic matter, and compost each year which is gradually helping it. I really don't have a clue when it comes to gardening, I don't know what will grow well so I just buy anything that I like, try it in the garden, and then if it grows well I'll buy a few more the following year, which seems to be working quite well lol

Took a few photos of my Van Meuwen plants, they seem to be growing well, which is a first for me! Hope your perennials turn up soon, bit unfair that yours were postponed when you were one of the first to order!

These were the ones I got from B&Q last year, think I spent around £16. it was posted on here, (linky) 10 Months ago, so mid June I guess,. It probably changes each year though.

Also made my first hanging basket today, 3 x aurea at the bottom, 9 white lobelia in the middle, 3 red gereniums, 2 white bacopas, and a couple of red petunias up top. Hope they turn out ok, the top looks a little cramped, but the sides look too sparse, I just hope the plants cover the basket. I'm thinking the White/Red theme might look a little garish once they grow, so might swap the top red out for something else.

Received mine today, tiny little things but they look quite healthy, and they've not dried out or anything. No idea how I'm going to grow them though :O I have lots of larger cell trays that I could put them in, or small separate pots. Does it make much of a difference? And would standard compost from asda be ok, they have 3 x 50Litres on offer for £10 at the moment I think, or is it worth spending more on branded compost? I don't want to kill them this time :( lol

I got my fuchsias today and they seem good - bigger than the normal tiny plug they send and the plant is about 2 inches tall so have high hopes!

I have an idea for you - grow bag !? You could plant them all in it and the compost is the best for raising small plants on - just make sure it doesn't dry out.

Seperate cells will be fine for say the first month but this time of year they will grow really quickly so 9cm pots or bigger (I'm going to put my fuchsias in 12cm pots) might be best idea. If you have a notcutts store they do a pot recycling area in mine so it might be worth checking if you don't have the extra for a lot of pots? Also homebase usually have a pot dump where you could rummage for some. If they need a clean warm soapy water is fine - you don't need any special detergents of disinfectants.

Don't forget some plant food - once a week in should be good to get them growing fast.

Let me know how you get on. I will try get a pic of my fuchsias up.

:)

Your fuschias sound bigger than my annuals, some of my petunias are barely 1cm tall! I'll try and take a photo later.

I don't think I'd have enough room for grow bags, there's 150 plants (lol) so I'd need quite a few of them and my back garden is only small so I'd have to move them about a lot to access the shed / garage etc. and I'd be afraid of disturbing them too much, but I could use the compost from them if it's ideal.

Space wise, my most practical solution would be 6cell trays, as they're easily portable so I could move them about and I have plenty at hand. I could also probably pot about 40 of the largest into individual 9cm pots, and put them somewhere they won't need moving much. If they outgrow their container, I'm guessing I could pot them straight up into the baskets as they'd be as big as garden center ones then? I was planning on visiting my local plant nursery this weekend, Mockridge Nurseries, and it's next door to a nottcutts, so could nip in and see if they have any pots, didn't know they did a pot recycling scheme, that's handy to know!

For the time-being I've put them in a tray on my spare room windowsill which is a cool room. Once they're ready to pot up (hopefully today) can they go straight out or would they need hardening off?

https://i.imgur.com/UocWBhel.jpg
Hard to believe there are 150 there! Radiator doesn't get used, so they won't dry out



Thanx for the pic - they look good!

The fuchsias were bigger as there is only 9 of then but as they are hardy I thought it was worth £6. They are the biggest plugs I have received from them.

It would be best if you can harden them off over 10 nights/days. And keep an eye on weather for late season frosts-they will need protecting from this. You could get some fleece to lay over them at night?

When you gave them in the cells keep an eye out for roots appearing under neigh the cells - this can mean they are outgrowing their cells - then pull a cell out gently - if the sides of the compost plug is all covered in roots it's time to pot up. Might help you know when it's time for pots or baskets....

What plants exactly did you get? A lot of bedding will like a sunny spot as long as the do not dry out(it's a fine balance).

I haven't hot my perennials yet....hope they not stuck in a post room somewhere? Bank holidays aargh !


I managed to get some westland young plant compost with john inns No 1 for £2.50 in wilko, think it was 14 litre as it had 33% extra "free", so I potted them up, some in pots and some in trays, I had some foam fabric stuff from packaging so I put them over them last night and brought as many indoors as I could. They seem ok at the moment, so fingers crossed.

In each pack were 12 each of geraniums, begonias, petunias and sweet peas. Pretty upset about the sweet peas to be honest, I'm not a lover of them, and I was at least expecting some lobelia which would have been great for the baskets, but oh well! I went to Mockridge nurseries yesterday, got a few trays of lobelia, £1.75 for 12, which isn't bad, and they're bigger so they should have a better chance of surviving my ruthless hands lol

I'll update photos if they continue to grow :D

Hope you receive your perennials soon, it t would be a bit irresponsible if they dispatched them just before a 4 day bank holiday weekend!

I like westland compost - mainly because Im vegetarian and they were the only people to say they do not add animal by-products. Its also good soil so great choice!

I managed to snag some mega bargains this weekend at homebase - you wont be pleased to hear but I got 8 medium lobilas, begonias and petunias for 50p a tray and sweet peas for £1, No idea where I am going to put them all as the garden is FULL!

I hope my perennials show tomorrow - i dont know whether to be annoyed or not - they always seem to do this to me with a huge weekend stopping them coming thru!

Please do keep sending the pics and updates - its good to talk to a fellow gardener especially one like me - not so good at keeping everything alive! ;) x

I never knew most compost had animal by-products added, I'm also vegetarian so it's good to know, glad I made the right choice! I bought the westland manure last year for the roses, but had a fly infestation, which lasted all summer. Apparently when it's organic, flies can lay their eggs in the bags, and due to there being no pesticide they breed like wild fire. So I won't be using it again this year.

Well done with the bargain haul! I did a similar thing last year at B&Q, in the heat of summer, most of them were dieing off, so they decided to clear them all out, reducing them to around 50p. Grabbed quite a lot, a bit of TLC and they were all revived, and most of it has come up again this year. It was being in the right place at the right time just like you, I'd have to be extremely lucky to get them again this year, seeing as I don't go to b&q that often, but would be great if I could!

Nipped in Sainsburys today, they had 3 for 2 on bedding plant trays, verbenas, petunias, marigolds, gereniums. The mixed colour varieties had 20 in a tray at £4, so 60 plants for £8 which didn't seem too bad, can't complain at 13p each! I guess I'm anticipating the death of my Van Meuwan ones, but hopefully they will grow. I have a small greenhouse, (despite my lack of plant knowledge), mostly used as a shed, so I've cleared it out and put the plants inside it, might be a bit more at home than the spare room lol

My Fushias were delivers while I was away, but they seem OK, they are a couple of inches tall, so the biggest I have received.

Going to wack them into small modules in the greenhouse

Wow - that was lucky that they were ok! I took mine out and watered them and they still keeled over - still not potted them up :S

I was surprised at their size - if this is there new size system I approve!

Did you order anything else?


Quite, it always seems to happen to me. I was given a surprise present of those frozen Russell Donald packs while i was away one christmas, and that was ok too.
I have also ordered the perennials but they have not arrived yet, I have just potted the fuchsias.
I expect the fushias to be really mini plugs.

Couldn't possibly participate in an offer from a newspaper that dodges its fair share of taxes, using offshore trusts etc., then bleats sanctimoniously about Starbucks, Amazon and Google (though strangely, not Apple) legally using the Guardian's beloved EU's tax laws to their advantage! :)

Who cares if there was a loop hole I could get out of paying tax I would, blame the government for not closing the holes.
Whoosh! I think you missed the point of what I said - they're not loopholes, they're a perfectly legal aspect of being in the EU! The point is the hypocrisy of the Guardian, that bleats on and on about tax avoidance by Amazon et al, yet is guilty of the self same avoidance in its own finances.

had similar potted on out of 24 one survived, suggest these are good for very green fingered people only

I'm not green fingered, still learning, but as long as you don't put them out when it's too cold they should be fine. If you have a greenhouse you're laughing.

The only problems I had were things like slugs going for some of them, and rust attacking some hollyhocks I got, but now know to be proactive in fending them off before it's too late.

This looks like a really good offer - just one thing though, it says "Despatch: By end of March 2014".

Ah OK I've amended the description, they seem to grow them in batches then send them out when they're ready. The ones I got I received in about August (ordered ~June I think) so I'm looking after them till they're ready for the big wild world next Spring. :p

Makes sense I suppose, they can offer them that cheap so they know how many to grow.

Worth taking cuttings from these, once you have them, as they're not as long lived as most other shrubs - expect 10 years or so, sometimes less.
An 8cm pot suggests it's practically a seedling. For a few quid more (probably £7.99 to £9.99) you could get a bush in a 2L pot or larger at an independent nursery.

If there is a way to get lower or free postage then it's an excellent deal but with the postage cost it's not so hot.
Best smelling flower in the world, yet I have never seen one in the UK

Voted cold because its a rip off not a deal
Just for everyone's information, Van Meuwen and Vernon's Geraniums are both owned by T&M.

Have to say that, over the many years that I've dealt with them, they've been as good as gold. The only thing that has "gone wrong" with my orders is that they have been delayed due to the idiosyncracies of our weather. Everything has always arrived, I've always had the relevant emails from them and when they've had to substitute (rarely), the substitutions have been value for the money that I spent on the original order and are accompanied by a £5 voucher.

The one thing that REALLY annoys me and it applies to ALL of the major mail-order plant sellers is offers like this...

...spend a penny and get X, Y or Z for just the cost of the delivery. Yeah right, order something else at the same time and, unless your order qualifies for free delivery you will pay a second delivery charge. Even when you do qualify for free delivery, you still have to pay that spend a penny delivery charge of £3.95 or £4.95 or whatever.

It's about time that this method of marketing was banned as there is no way that you can get the plants on offer for 1p or free. Companies should be forced to state that, using these strawberry plants as an example, their deal costs £3.96.

Wonder what the OFT's reaction would be to one of the major electrical chains or stores listing a special offer on a fridge freezer as - get this fridge freezer for just £1, just pay the delivery charge of £298.99?

...steer clear of this company if you can. Still not received an item after placing the order on 12th May. Quick to take your money, item doesn't turn up when stated, do not reply to emails and very very poor attitude on the telephone. I've asked for a refund, doubt I'll get it but if I do I'll use the money on lottery tickets as you have more chance of success with them!
Tiny plants - I over wintered and they are now reasonably sized. Worth £4, nothing more
I've received them. Waste of time....

Where to begin...

...first up, not all plants are ready for shipping immediately they are paid for - Mother Nature (or the grower) is not able to work like that. :D This means that most plants are sold with an **expected** delivery date listed. This too is frequently messed up by the weather. For example, the growing schedule has, in many cases been delayed by around a month this year and so stuff that should have arrived by the end of May is frequently arriving now or in the next few weeks. Believe me, the growers hate this - for a whole bunch of reasons I shan't go into. No, I am not in the Trade, I'm just a keen gardener that has several decades of gardening under his fingernails. ;)

In my experience, plants do arrive, even if they don't arrive when we might like. This is not the growers trying to annoy us, just, as suggested, Mother Nature messing us about.

As to the price of these plugs, they are actually reasonably cheap for several reasons, the weather being a major one.

On the face of it, these plugs do look expensive but they are not.

They are a new development in the Heuchera family and were introduced this year at the Chelsea Flower Show. Being a new variation, there is a licence fee to be paid to the patent holder for each plant sold. The fee paid is not huge but it is a consideration.

Supply and demand is also a large factor because these are new this year and so the market is not drowning in them. The patent holder will also want to make sure that the plants continue to run true as the number of plants increases and so licences to grow will likely have a restriction on the number of plants.

Even eBay has only one remaining example listed and that costs *per plug* £4.85 plus postage. It's item 231000422158 if anyone wants a look.

Just my view on things and as close to the truth as I can make it. 8)

More than £2.20 each and they're only a plug plant. Seems expensive to me
My magnolia is flowering with 3 beautiful flowers :) yup, I have waited ages for any of the offers from them/Thompson & Morgan to arrive. I suppose as a gardener patience has to be developed . . . . . .certainly with these peeps it does!

Last time I've ordered Magnolia tree from them, and yes, you're right. I was waiting 2 weeks to be delivered but it arrived....And in a Garden centers they are very expensive.
Great deal if you get the goods delivered - add p&p and then sit back and wait for them, and wait, and wait ...................

email customer services and sit back and wait and wait, and wait ...................

I'll give this a miss and go to the garden centre and buy one which I know I can plant!

voted cold as the chances are you will not receive them so you are paying for nothing - no deal just a rip off!

What did you order? I know T&M are running about 3 weeks late and seeing that they are the same suppliers Id guess they will be running late too. They will get delivered - not had a failed delivery yet!

[quote=snowtiger] I am still waitin for my last one to be delivered from 10 days ago! really not sure about this company!

They will deliver but at a much later date. Last time they delivered them whilst I was on holiday and a slug had been lured into one bag outside my door. They then died bar one. I bought 3! You have to check the delivery date as sometimes they can be 3 months after you part with the money. They are not conning you, but as they arrive at different times (probably because of the nature of the plants) and yet they are usually so small that I don't even bother any more! I think these peonies might be straight from China?!

They'll be dispatched by the end of June, should have said in your confirmation email.
Will be surprised it it takes that long as the ones I ordered from them on 25th April, with an expected dispatch date of "By the end of May" just happened to have arrived this morning.

For general information, Van Meuven are part of Thompson and Morgan and so are not likely to go broke anytime soon nor are they likely to rip anyone off. 8)

P&P is £3.95 so still cheapish deal

I must admit - there have been better deals! If you were ordering anyway it would make it OK.
