Last time I bought from them a '70 Lucky Dip Ready Plants Offer' there were all the same plants (so no lucky dip) and poor quality plants.

I'd stay away from plants sent via post.

Agree sadly as they are good value when yo look at local sellers

Well, my other half picked up 4 trays of plants from B+Q last Sunday, 9 x garden ready plants in each tray, there was a big selection too, all nice and healthy, excellent root systems... for a total of £4.
I have bought from this site, Thompson and Morgan etc and in the past they were far better value, quality plants and arrived in good condition, the last couple of years though all have soared in price, been very poor quality, in cases (as mentioned above) all been the same plants (supposed to be mixed), arrived dead or not arrived at all - Goes to to show what the price hikes do.... interesting...
I know the local nurseries used to charge a premium but their prices are dropping and you get to see what you are buying and make your own selections, so worth having a few hours out of the house and do some plant shopping, nice fresh air..... away from a stuffy computer!

The b&q plants were 10 quid the other day but have been reduced to 4 for 4. Loads available and are in the teabag style growth packs which are brill. Good to see b&q are finally looking after their plants.

I bought some winter flowering pansy and viola plug plants from Jersey Plants Direct a couple of years ago. They turned up late, were absolutely microscopic, and even though they were supposed to be mixed colours the few that survived all turned out to be yellow. Complete and utter waste of time and money.

I've had pretty good success with Thompson and Morgan plugs, but my favourite now is an Ebay seller because the plugs are bigger and they have more unusual varieties. I've used garden ready Homebase plants in the past and liked them because of the less faffing about. I bought a few this year but both stores I went to this year couldn't seem to manage to water their plants properly. By the sound of it the B&Q plants seem to be good value, but in past years I've always left empty handed because the varieties were too dull, maybe they have improved.
