Hi happydays28, I’ve used Waitrose Garden when I can’t find a plant I want locally. All their plants are sourced from Crocus (a huge online garden centre) and the plants are generally good quality and very well packed. I did receive a Camellia once but all the flowers and buds had fallen off and were lying in the bottom of the box, so I emailed Waitrose with photos, and they not only sent me a fully budded replacement, but asked me to keep the originally. I planted them both and they are flowering well. So basically great service from Waitrose.

I also bought an Apple tree from Blackmoor Fruit Growers and that was a beautiful specimen - looking forward to picking apples next year!

I also bought several Clematis from Thorncroft Clematis Ltd, and again healthy plants that were well packaged.

Forzaitalia so helpful as always. I concur I have also received lovely clematis from Thorncroft all the way to Dublin. I also hear that Crocus is very good and the RHS also offer plants for sale. I occasionally buy bulbs, roses and fruit trees from RV Roger Ltd in Pickering. (Of course not sure if it will be possible to get plants from across the water anymore when Brexit happens)
