You know when Steve Redgrave famously said we had to shoot him if he ever went near a boat again?

Well I feel the same way about buying plants/seeds/bulbs by post.


Well I’ll tell you why. With the exception of last years red geraniums and begonias,
everything I’ve bought by post has been a disaster.

The latest one being the pansies and hyacinth bulbs which I ordered at the end of last year. Basically, the pansies are all dead and the hyacinths, which didn’t flower for Xmas as promised, can’t even stand up straight, and instead of being yellow are a sort of off white colour.

If I even think about buying plants by post again, please shoot me!
