I mean the kind of pots of bulbs that you can find in florists at the moment, that are just beginning to shoot. Can you buy them online and get them delivered? I've had a good google and the answer seems to be no, but I live in hope!
It's for my little brother - he and his girlfriend like garden stuff, and he will be all alone on Christmas Day as he's working (poor love), so I want to send him something that will be nice and cheer him up, but won't go to waste because after Christmas day, he'll promptly go up to our parents' for a few days and cut flowers would go to waste.
I also quite want to send some nice food bits, but all the hampers I've seen are too huge for one person or a bit naff.
Bike - I didn't fancy what I found on Interflora's website, sorry. Local florist a v. good idea though, hadn't thought of that. Thanks!
cat - what's wrong with forced flowers then? I've never had them myself, I just liked the look of those pots of green shoots I've seen in the florist's shop. Do they not look nice when they flower?
I don't really want to send him something he has to plant, as he will be tired - he'll have worked all week and I want to send him something that'll immediately make him smile and maybe feel a bit festive, even if he is on his own.
Rowdy - some people DO like them, just saying I don't. I prefer plants in their season, tis all. Amaryllis are great, there are more & more impossible looking ones each year. I need to get myself one....
I had to buy the Daily Fail today (for the Christmas Elvis DVD ) and they have offers for growing bulbs, jasmine and holly trees much cheaper in their supplement bit. It's in a kind of Daily Fail Betterware catalogue included in the magazine.
