Container shrubs


By Jonezee

Thank you so much everyone for your comments and suggestions. I have taken them all on board. However nobody said anything about the best time to buy these shrubs and set them out on the patio. Is it too late now to begin looking for them?



You can start looking now, but some things might be better left till spring - the Convolvulus, certainly would be better in the spring. All of the others I mentioned, at least, will be fine to plant up now. You may find yourself restricted for choice - most garden centres run their stocks of plants down to get ready for Christmas, so you may not find everything you want at this time of year.

some places you can place the order for them and then they send them to you when its the right time.always nice to have plants arrive when you forgot all about ordering them
Hope this makes sense Im on a sugar rush

Many thanks for your helpful replies. You sound a really jolly crowd and you all seem to know each other.
This is all very new to me. I am only just beginning to learn about this online stuff.
