I am awaiting their presences as my garden needs that extra colour not signs of anything yet.

No problem with the service, plants are always well packed. Only one of the five bulbs has produced any leaves, the others are stunted. There is no sign of a flower. Directions for planting were followed and all were doing well in pots before planting out. Have blamed the hot summer, but other plants have surged back once the rain started.

Bulbs sent out as promised, could not fault delivery

I have planted bulbs, they have not all put out leaves but I am still waiting for them to flower, which I believe is in the autumn

All the lilies I ordered were absolutely fabulous - oh what a show they gave & the perfume in my little garden was wonderful. The Nerines are doing well but have yet to come into flower so I'm looking forward to that.
Many thanks ,Anna Atherton

Bought a collection of three types of nerines last spring. Planted them in a very sunny spot in the flower bed to the front of our cottage was rewarded with weeks of lovely flowers before and up to Christmas. The darker pink were most successful. Haven't had any success with these before.

Planted these in a large pot initially as I needed to clear the area I had in mind for them. Four of them failed to show any growth and I eventually transplanted the remaining six into a newly prepared sunny spot. I did see that they may not flower well in their first year and, indeed, I was treated to just one beautiful flower which lasted well. I will have to give them a 'pep-talk' in the Spring and hope for better things come next Autumn.
