These perennials all came as large plug plants which we potted up (and labelled!) straight away and watered in.

Also in this order I picked a Hosta Collection for £3.99 which should have been a mix of 5 different types, when I received them there was a sticker that said “Due to exhausted stocks please accept 8 different varieties of Hosta sorry for any inconvenience’ . They had sent me 8 – 3 free ones! No inconvenience to me as I will grow them all and if there are any extras I will hopefully swap them locally for something else or give them to a friend.

My Hosta Collection Included:

  • Hosta So Sweet
  • Hosta Canadian Blue
  • Hosta Honey Bells
  • Hosta White Feather
  • Hosta Touch of Class
  • Hosta Diana Remembered
  • Hosta Fire & Ice
  • Hosta Und. Albomarginata

I was surprised when these arrived I expected them to be in plug form however you can see from the picture they looked woody and in my opinion dead – just roots!

We planted these in posts too and watered in, so I will wait and see what happens. Fingers crossed they grow as some of these look quite impressive on Google!

I also ordered a pack of 30 Dutch Iris Tiger mixed for £1.99, I like bulbs as you can stick them in and forget about them and lastly I got a free gift of 5x Lillium Regale (love a freebie).
