3 Perfect Peonies for £6.99 + £4.95 p&p @ Van Meuwan
Found 6th Oct 2018Found 6th Oct 2018
Peonies are a classic cottage garden plant. They will last a lifetime in the garden, getting bigger and better with age, so are always worth the investment. Make use of the addicti… Read more

Got mine a couple of years ago from Poundland and planted them among some David Austin Roses. This year they grew up to 1.5 meters tall x 1.2 wide. Don't plant them too deep, give them space, free draining soil, a bit of bone meal and you can't go wrong!


Every spring poundland have got a peony root for - you guessed it- £1!!! It's normally Sarah Bernhardt’ but I've seen other varieties in there too.


Ha. I agree I bought a run down cottage and renovated it. Had a lovely pink and white peony in the garden. I divided it and replanted some in my garden but for the life of my I can't get it to flower. The remains that were left scattered in the cottage garden are flourishing. the tenant keeps asking me to get rid of it as it is now a driveway. Too much clay in my garden I think


Postage is the killer, they also supply you with plants that are unlikely to flower next year and as mntioned are very temperamental taking a few years to get going


Peonies are also one of those temperamental plants that will prosper in some places but just turn up their toes a few feet away. You can never tell.

Have to disagree, had a few not so good plants, phoned them up new tray of 24 plants sent out for the sake of 4 not so good ones. Everything else I ordered has bloomed lovely. Wouldn't say they where the best company out there but not the worst, Could you elaborate why they are the worst ??


Avoid Don't bother this is the worst company you will ever deal with


My email from Tesco says I can use up to three vouchers per order but the Van Meuwen website only allows one per order. As I have two vouchers that means an extra £3.95 deliver charge which almost negates the enhanced boost offer. Bit of a con I think. I've asked Tesco to cancel the Van Meuwen vouchers and return my clubcard ones and I'll buy my plants somewhere else

What are these like? T&M were OK for seeds and that is about it. Tried Parker's for a couple of seasons and not worth the bother or lost time due to too many wrong plants sent.


It was 5am i posted it lol.


It does work once you put the code in, just tried


The code worked for me on blackberry plants. On the page I looked at it said free p&p until midnight 12th Feb. That's odd!. When I look on my phone the home page has the 'free p&p until midnight 12th Feb' banner but no mention when I ordered on the computer. Definitely got free postage though. My goods came to £14.97 with no p&p charge.

So if 72 plants suits, then this is a better deal than the Thompson & Morgan one that expired at 221 degrees! Heat from me anyway OP. :)


That's me told :|


"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).


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.


It's also not rocket science to work out that this is cheaper than two of the others.

Got 12 of these. 12 good sized trees. Look great. excellent value.


Which part of England?


Watch out for this little fella. 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 :)

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!


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


[img][/img]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.


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


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.

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.


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.


delivered by the end of may, you could grow your own quicker


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! :)

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.


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


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.


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


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

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


It should grow to a height and spread of 150cm


looks good deal except only in an 8cm pot must quite small shrub or should i say shrublet !

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?


they're not a very good company unfortunately
