Pretty good deal. These come as plug plants. Pot them on as soon as you can, or you can chance putting them straight into the ground in a sheltered area if you keep them well watered. You get free fertiliser too.
Details:
You'll receive 6 plug plants (4-5cm high) each of:
Petunia 'Express Blue' - Height x Spread 20cm x 30cm
Petunia 'Express Peppermint Vein' - H x S 30cm x 60cm
Petunia 'Express Burgundy' - H x S 25cm x 35cm
Geranium 'Jackpot Pink' - H x S 35cm x 30cm
Geranium 'Jackpot White' - H x S 35cm x 30cm

I paid p&p for another recent offer on here from this company, delivery - if it ever arrives - is estimated end of June. Many others had the same issue last year, so cold for me, want these now for summer not in 2 months time.
Seems a good deal but if the delivery date is By end of June 2016 like this earlier deal
it's not for me

Everything I've bought from these people has just died - even though I've planted them in containers with quality compost.
Im not much of a gardener but could anyone give any advice on non flowering bedding plants or shrubs that need little maintenance? Ideally I dont want anything the grows to tall, maybe less than 1 metre as they will be at the front of a flower bed which has existing flowering plants of around 1m at the back.

looked around garden centres and cant see anything that doesnt flower that doesnt look half dead

Lot's of different types of these but have a look at the full growth rate before selecting as some of these grow over 1m, we have some of these they give evergreen colour so good all year round, low maintenance but they don't mind being pruned once every summer, they do get small whitish flowers but don't really notice them!

You really must not be much of a gardener.... I'm no Monty Don, never had any problems with them at all!

Have you considered plastic flowers... I hear they are quite hardy

There's lots of various evergreen Hebe's, some aren't very floriferous! But this one's very low maintenance and colorful foliage

Thanks for the ideas, appreciated :-)
Thompson & Morgan use to be great to buy plants form 15 years ago. I have never had a problem with the Plant as such. The problem has always been with Royal Mail using the boxes of plants as football or the plant get cooked it the back those little red vans on a sunny day or the best one, was forcing a pack of plant thought the letter flap that was obviously to small.

In all case T&M have aways be helpful in replacing the damaged items & evan upgrading item to compensate for the inconvenience caused as a part of their 5 star guarantee.

The best buy use to be 90 cell pack of Busy Lizzy's or Petunias for £9.99 then the price went up 11.99 and so on, and if you ordered a few pack P&P was always free, the best thing they (guaranteed a minimum of 150 plants) in each 90 cell pack all the cells were double of triple seedlings my record 205 Busy Lizzy's (just to buy the seeds alone 3 packs of 30 seeds £2.99 each x 5 £14.94 Busy Lizzy's aren't the easiest to start off so a Bargan I use to split them but that was the good old days.

In the last 3 years there is more emphasis on vouchers for £5 off your next order which was basically free P&P. Now since last year pay £5.65 P&P and get free plants not a fan of this. However now the pack are smaller and better packed not had any delivery problem recently

I too went for the earlier deal and my order is showing 'awaiting stock'. These plug plants will not be flowering this year (or any other year)

Same here. If the status doesn't change this week I will try and cancel.

They send them out at the ultimate planting time. You can order and pay for plants that are not ready until months forward. It is the way nurseries work. Worry not

Hmm, well my hanging baskets will be planted within the next few weeks, so even if the plug plants came next week they wouldn't have put much growth on in time for planting.

I fear this ending up the same as the "jumbo" pansies I bought from Jersey Plants Direct last autumn. They turned up as microscopic, barely rooted plugs weeks too late to be of much use. They also all turned out yellow when they were supposed to be mixed.

I've had success buying plants from Ebay sellers but I think in future I will stick with plants from Homebase - good quality and value.
