I'd forgotten all about the plants I'd ordered from J Parkers and received in the huge box delivered to my door Thursday night. They are large plugs / bare root perennials that I'm growing on for sale at my plant sales next year. They were all nicely rooted but looked very sad due to the time of year. There were some promising new shoots though but I don't really expect them to do anything until next Spring. It took all morning to pot them up and I now have to find somewhere to over-winter them. The front garden is already full of sale plants as is the side of friend Chris' house so they are currently over-spilling into the back garden. I desperately try to keep sale plants away from the back garden as that is always full of 'my' plants waiting to be planted but never mind, needs must!
