I ordered what I wanted at the Chelsea Flower Show and the Hampton Court Flower Show last year so I will not be ordering anything now.
Regards.

I started ordering last month with more being worked on. It seems like an ongoing thing here,..... never-ending, I would say! Hilarious!

I purchase wholesale for my nursery, and the catalogues start coming in around Sept to Oct, so by Jan I need to get my order in, or miss out. So, I'm mostly done.

I'm about to order. The catalogs sat here long enough that I can't resist anymore. Green Grin! I now wish I had already ordered from some of them since I am still planting here in Middle TN this winter!

I actually threw some catalogs out in the cleaning frenzy before Christmas. I do wish they would wait until the holidays are over to send them. I really need them to come in January.

There are new ones showing up now, a good thing indeed, and I will be ordering soon, maybe...

It takes me awhile to create the planter combos so I was done in November.I placed an RD order the first week of December.
I just placed an order for annuals today. This gives me peace of mind,so I know I will be able to have the colors I want and found I needed to switch one annual because the website didnt carry it in 2012 catalogue.

I am just planting tomato seeds this year, oh and a few hardy succulent seeds. My order for tomato seeds, from Patti's Salsa Cubit, already arrived this last week. I'll be planting them using the Winter Sow method the end of this month.
I have some other seeds from last year that I might also plant.
I do love looking through the catalogs.

More lilies, I need to get orders in soon. Otherwise I visit some of the very nice nurseries in this area. I want to hit at least two or three that I have never visited.

I ordered seeds in October. I like to take the packets out and gloat over them from time to time, thinking about summer. We're having a mild winter. Only minus 12 Celsius. Last year same time was minus 28.

.Order some now because of some very good pre-order sales. Gardens Alive $25 off order no matter what size order , ended up costing a little over one dollar. Santa Rosa Gardens 35% off. Could not resist . But most will get done in the spring after I see if any thing needs replacing. and what trades can be made.
