Re: Who is still selling plants online and delivering them?

Message from Nicola

In forum: Who can sell me a plant?

A member contacted us with this list too:

A Thompson & Morgan spokesperson said: " However, we are certainly noticing a huge increase in online traffic, and in sales growth across all areas, with a particular emphasis on edibles - veg seeds and plants across the board are selling well.

"We’re also noticing lots of engagement on social media amongst the gardening and allotment community. Many are sharing progress and tips on sowing and growing – it’s great to see the support between newcomers to gardening and the more experienced growers!"

Mail order retailers including Suttons, Mr Fothergill's Hayloft, Gardening Express, YouGarden, Chrysanthemums Direct and many more are seeing upsurges in sales after garden centres closed this week. Suttons has reported sales 400-700% up in some categries of edible seeds and young plants, while Dalefoot Composts mail order sales are up 1500%.

Seeds of Italy said: "We had three weeks worth of orders in two days last weekend. That was mostly seed, but we also sell Italian flour and pasta of course."

Garden centres are also increasing online sales and home deliveries, while nurseries have introduced deliveries. However, have delays on despatch.

Hardy's Cottage Garden Plants has a new home delivery service to customers who live within a 20 mile radius of the nursery, which is in Freefolk in Hampshire. Hortus Loci is delivering within 15 miles of Hook, Hampshire but the shop is closed. Avon Bulbs is delivering within 12 miles of its South Petherton, Somerset nursery and like many nurseries, trying to sell of show plants after event cancellations. Crocus, Ashwood, T&M, RHS, Sarah Raven and Delfland are among mail order companies that said delivery times were longer than usual.

Hi Emma, do you have larger format images and maybe some close-ups of the flower and leaf? The images are very small and hard to make out. Cheers, Nicola

Plant ID - chrysanthemum tree?

Question from Wild Edge Garden Design

In forum: Identify a plant

Does anyone know what this tree might be? This image is taken in winter when the tree is in full flower. My client calls it a chrysanthemum tree but Google doesn't pull anything up when I search under that name (other than standard chrysanthemums). I haven't actually seen the tree, only this picture and am struggling to ID from this. Any help appreciated. Many thanks. Emma

Small Chrysanthemum with daisy colour

Question from Bob Bruyn

In forum: Identify a plant

I came home from vacation to find this beautiful tall plant struggling to reach the sun from under my Thuja orientalis. It looks like small Chrysanthemums with daisy colour. It is about 80cm tall.
I'm having trouble finding an exact name. Any ideas?

Re: Cut flowers

Message from Clockhouse Nursery

In forum: General

Dahlias & Chrysanthemums are two old favourites although there are tonnes of plants now considered for 'cut flowers'. Your other answers sound good for inspiration...dont forget google search for 'flower gardening' or 'flower gardening in shade' is free.

Plugs or pots? plugs are cheaper but can have higher failure rate so are best potted on into pots (9cm for example) before planting out. Bigger pots (9cm,1ltr & 3ltr) have great root systems so survival rate is higher but they are generally more expensive to start with.....swings and roundabouts.

Dont forget dahlias are grown from tubers (or roots) which should still be able to get now, and some other annual plants can be grown from seed (cosmos for example).

The plant world in general is a minefield of choice, trial and error is often the route to success.

Hi, pretty sure its Chrysanthemum carinatum 'Polar Star'. It's a hardy annual that makes an excellent cut flower. Flowers June-Sept. and requires full sun. Hope that helps :)

landscaping ideas

General post from Arline Ryan

In forum: Garden Landscaping and Design Forum Event

Gardening ideas:
For planning, it is possible to keep the flowers in your garden throughout the duration of growth. Borders and beds are planted with annual and perennial flowers that bloom at different times of year. By choosing carefully at first, and the care of the flowers since then, the flowers overlap each other, so there's never a time when the old blooms disappear, but new one is beginning to show color.

Preparing the soil for flower beds or borders requires greater care than planting a garden. For one thing, digging must be deeper. There is too much to dig the bed 2 feet deep, although 1 1 / 2 feet is adequate. It is, of course, possible to grow flowers in a shallower bed than this, but the deeper you dig, the better your production will be.

All heavy loads should be divided. It's a good idea to spread some sand, ash or bottom ash on the ground to break. It is also possible that work manure, well rotted manure, grass clippings or peat moss in the background. Do not sign the bottom floor down, but let it settle naturally.

Marga it must be used for topsoil, for example, well-rotted manure, humus, peat, compost or well-screened gravel. Wood ashes are fine for spring, and lime can be used to loosen the soil. You might think about the character of its soil and consider the special fertilizer that contains the elements your soil needs. Should the use of manure, be careful not to let it touch the roots of plants.

Should the use of manure, be careful not to let it touch the roots of plants. The color issues should be taken into account when planning flower borders and beds, so that while there is enough contrast in texture and color of flowers, is at the same time, an attractive combination.

A plan for a bed of annuals, for example, could be designed to stress zinnias, with contrast provided by flowers as soft as chrysanthemum, scabiosa, nasturtium, cosmos and candytuft. Location of the flower bed is important. Ideally, it should be near the house, facin

Overwintering Chrysanthemums

Message from Kathy C

In forum: General

Hi, Martin,
No worries about the delay. What to do to overwinter depends on where you live. If you live in an area prone to hard frosts/freezing conditions, you should first cut back all flowers stems to about 20cm then lift the crowns and store over winter in loamless compost in a frost-free place. In areas with light frost, leave then were they are and mulch with a deep, dry mulch. Then cut back in spring (leaving dead stems will add further cold protection). If you do lift them, make sure they don't dry out completely over the winter. Though dormant, they will still need some moisture. Hope this has been of some help.
Kathy C.
