Just seen this on their website, cheapest I've seen in other places is about £17 + postage, I've currently got 72 on the go from an earlier offer on another site.

They come as small plants (about 6cm tall) that you put in pots and look after till it's warm enough to put them out, then you'll have 72 plants that would cost you about £3.99 each in garden centres!

Collection comprises:
Aquilegia 'Mrs Scott Elliott' - Height: 60cm.
Heuchera 'Ruby Bells' - Height: 45cm (24").

Pro-Tip: Don't mix "Fish, Blood and Bone" fertiliser into the compost when you pot them on, I made that mistake thinking it would give them a boost and it just made half of them die.

Now I just water them with rainwater and occasionally mix some miracle grow in.

I used that stuff and a badger or fox dug them up looking for the fishbloodbone? Good deal btw.

Enjoy

Nice one, 14p per plant has to be one of the bargains of the year.

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.

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

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.
