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.

Erythroniums – as seen on Gardeners World tonight

Erythronium ‘Hidcote Beauty’ also known as ‘Hidcote Pink’ was shown on Gardeners World tonight is a bold leaved pretty pink plant.

Carol Klein also showed Erythronium oregonum with mottled leaves and elegant cream near white flowers along with Erythronium californicum ‘White Beauty’.

If you like yellow flowers, Erythronium ‘Spindlestone’ or Erythronium ‘Harvington Sunshine’  are both exceptional plants.

Click here for our full range of Erythronium bulbs which are despatched when dormant in July-early September.

Top tip: never let an Erythronium bulb dry out, plant as soon as possible after lifting and not after mid-September.  They put down roots in late September through October and shouldn’t be disturbed at this stage.
