Did you take them back? The daughter of the family has a perennial nursery and i took back some scabious which obviously had a virus - I got a full refund

I have only ever bought about 7 roses from them and they have been fine

I must admit we didnt, but at the same time we had bought some roses from other places, which were a lot cheaper, they were all treated the same and the others are doing fine. The DA ones just seemed to give up a die.

OK, Tahir,
We all know, now, where to get expensive plants from, but who, and where, is your supplier?????
Or are you keeping them secret?

Hi Tahir,
I attempted to register with them today, but was unable to!
Message kept appearing, asking me to enter a valid e-mail address, and wouldn't accept mine!!
I've sent them an e-mail, asking for suggestions.
I wanted to buy some containerised trees, but they are collection only at the moment, and Durham is much too far away from West Wales

Give them a ring, they're nice peeps. But you're probably better off buying nearer to you.

How about a hop - very attractive foliage and flowers that you can then use for brewing your own beer We leave ours up over winter and it is still attractive in an understated way and only clear it out to make room for the new growth in spring - I believe it's Humulus lupus 'Aurea'.

Cheers.
