Isnt the Forsythia just gorgeous!

Isn’t the Forsythia just gorgeous! It seems that every second front garden has a Forsythia in full flower giving some yellow colour at good heights to match the daffodils at low level. We have Forsythia at the ever-so-affordable price of £4.92 including delivery so for all those front gardens that are feeling left out of Forsythia fever, it’s time to buy one so that you can join in the yellow craze next spring.

Cell grown plants are now in season so if you’ve left buying bare roots too late, have a look at our cell grown section – they’re small but inexpensive! Below is a photo to show you what a cell grown plant root looks like – they’ve been used for decades in forestry and woodland projects but are newly arrived in the domestic market. It’s not viable for garden centres to stock them but we in the internet world can collate orders together from all over the country to generate the volume of sales needed to make these inexpensive little plants worth stocking. We do need to stress that they are small though so if you need anything over 40cm then it’ll be our own production (in Lancashire) of pot grown plants you’ll need.

And my final comment today is “thank you” to all our bare root and root ball customers this season. We’ve just stopped selling these two types of plants – normally we’d stop at the end of March but the season was extended this year thanks to the very long cold winter. There’s no recession at Hedges Direct – we’ve had a fantastic season, which has more than made up for being as good as closed for the whole of the terrible weather period in January.
