From time to time I have various plants to sell that are surplus to my requirements.
These generally are grown on in 9 cm, 1 litre, 2 litre or 3 litre pots and are available for collection from me at my home. Please telephone me on 01639 722105 or e mail firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to to have a look at the plants I have for sale and we can fix a time and date for you to visit.
In the case of 9 cm pots, due to their size, up to 6 can be sent out in a small boxed parcel by Royal Mail. The postage and packaging cost is £3.95, plants costs are generally from £1.20 to £2.50 each depending on variety.
Although Comfrey and Eucalyptus Gunnii plants are featured below as for sale through the post, I usually have other perennial plants available for purchase. At June 2019 I have available Rudbeckia Fulgida ‘Goldsturm’ , Geum Rivale, Lobelia Cardinalis ‘Queen Victoria’ Campanula ‘Octopus’ , all grown by me in 9 or 10 cm diameter pots. Coming soon Welsh poppies, Lychnis Coronaria, Salvia New Dimension Blue and Lathyrus Latifolius (red or white flowering) known as the everlasting perennial hardy Sweet Pea.
Please e mail me if you might be interested in purchasing a mix of perennials for delivery and I’ll see what I have available and let you know the cost including postage and packing.
Comfrey is used as a green manure, its leaves make an excellent liquid feed for plants that is both high in potash and minerals. Great for feeding tomatoes and other plants.
Comfrey is a perennial plant that grows rapidly. It has many other uses including use as an activator in compost heaps to speed up decomposition of other plant material.
Growing comfrey is a great way of ‘gardening on a budget’ as once you have the plants growing well the leaves can be chopped back and used time after time. The comfrey variety I have is “Bocking 14” , this does not self-seed.
The image above features my comfrey patch at home. I cut the leaves and stems down on these plants regularly to make a liquid feed for use with other plants.
I can supply 5 Comfrey plants in 9 cm pots sent by second class post in a strong cardboard box as a small parcel for £10.00 inclusive of postage and packing. Cardboard packaging is recyclable.
Eucalyptus gunnii is a large evergreen tree or large shrub with peeling cream and brown bark and bright glaucous-blue, rounded foliage. It is a plant much valued by flower arrangers for its lovely foliage that adds interest when added to arrangements of flowers or to floral art. This variety of Eucalyptus is regarded as the hardiest in the UK.
My plants have been grown from seed and have been pruned to form a bush shape specifically to produce lots of foliage that in time, as the plant grows larger, can be cut and cut again for use in flower arrangements and floral art.
Eucalyptus does best when planted in full sun and in colder areas needs a sheltered spot. Although eucalyptus can grow to a very large height as a tree in the right conditions, by regular pruning and using the cut foliage as described it will take the shape of a large shrub and can be kept to the size required.
Plants are supplied in 9 cm. round pots and are 100 mm to 150 mm in height. I can supply two Eucalyptus Gunnii plants sent out in strong cardboard tubes for £9.00 inclusive of postage and packing. The plants are sent out by Royal Mail second class parcel post. Alternatively 3 Eucalyptus can be posted out in a heavy duty cardboard box for £12.00 inclusive of postage and packing. All cardboard packaging is recyclable.
