I've been impatiently waiting in for these to come from Fir Trees Nursery
I'm VERY impressed!
They arranged in advance the day for them to arrive and told me to phone if they hadn't arrived by six. They came at 12.15

The plants are very good quality, well packaged and most in pots to protect the roots.
...so now off to the potting shed LOL.

Very heavy and quite prolonged thunder showers today louisa, but warm at least.

You're right on two counts Mark, yes, I do just love delivery days (today I've had books as well - and ordered new carpets LOL) ...and yes, you can see 'Splendide' as well as 'Renata Parsley' in flower and 'Schottii' with buds just bursting :) :) :)

Will put up a list later. The scent in the kitchen where I unpacked is fabulous as there are a lot of scented leaf ones including species and Uniques!

Oooooooh I luvvem!!

Scented leaf: Dainty Maid, Concolour Lace, Nervous Mabel, Lara Starshine, Lemon Fancy, Gem Stone, Welling, Ardwick Cinnamon, Grey Lady Plymouth

I wonder if I could get that 'Renata Parsley' in the US? It is so unique.

It's like a smaller version of Splendide, so that would make a good substitute if you can get that but not Renata Parsley
