I have only done it once but it was quite successful. On a whim I decided I wanted some tea plants (Camellia sinensis) so I ordered two on line, they arrived safely and I grew them for years until they finally succumbed to drought (I have a very Darwinian garden)

I wondered what an evolutionary garden might be like, until I realised you meant Darwin the city!

Re: Buying Plants Online

Thanks Meg, I think I will order one from them, they are good quality, my daughter usually buys David Austin roses and has never been disappointed.
I didn't know they did those!

I once went to a small, off the beaten track nursery, and in the tiny café shack I had what was the nicest sticky toffee pudding I had ever, ever had. It was to die for, and I told them so.

I went there especially, a couple of weeks later, and had it again. It's quite a way to go as a special journey, but that just proved how nice it was.

Three months later, I took a friend, having waxed lyrical about this pudding, and wailing and gnashing of teeth, they had changed the caterers and no longer did it!
You could have heard my screams a mile off.
