The Telegraph – ‘Why now is the best time to plant Erythroniums’

Now is the best time to plant Erythronium bulbs- and that’s why you can buy them here now.  We despatch within 10 working days (usually less).  All bulbs are flowering size and freshly lifted to order.  If you plant them as soon as you can they will root down and establish well this autumn.  You will then be able to sit back and wait for their delightful flowers to appear in March/April.

If you are a subscriber to The Telegraph online do look up the article by Matt Collins from the Garden Museum in London.

If you would rather peruse the printed paper, buy The Telegraph on Saturday, pour yourself a cup of coffee, read the gardening section and treat yourself to some of the irresistible Erythroniums we have on offer here!

Happy Customers :-)

Meconopsis Slieve Donard

We LOVE receiving feedback from our customers – see the following comments received last week:

“I just wanted to say thank you for my hellebore plugs. They arrived much quicker than I expected, beautifully wrapped, all in perfect condition. They are now all happy growing in pots.” Katherine, Oxford

“Thank you so much for my order which arrived today.  I am delighted with the quality of the plants, the packaging and the speedy service – especially against the Covid background that we are all living with at the moment and I hope to place future orders with you  – that is if I can manage to squeeze any more plants into an already overcrowded garden.   I will most certainly recommend you to all of my gardening friends. ” Patrick from Belfast, he ordered Roscoea and Hellebore pot plants

“The plants are beautiful and in excellent condition for planting.”  Patricia from York, she ordered Meconopsis ‘Slieve Donard’ and Arisaema candidissimum

“I’m very impressed with the Hellebores…  Also the recyclable packing and your knowledgeable help with my order”  Trevor, Woking

It is such a boost to the Twelve Nunns team – Thank you!

Do order – we are still despatching!

We are still sending out our plants.  Our team is small and local… in fact very local.  It’s myself and two children (after they’ve done their homework each day) and three lovely ladies from the village who walk to work.  We are all keeping our distance and would be delighted to receive and despatch your orders or answer any queries.

Our packaging is all cardboard based and therefore very low risk in terms of spreading the dreaded virus! What better way to cheer yourself up than to buy one of our lovely plants today.
