    Has anyone grown Aruncus Dioicus?

    It's beautiful That's definitely what I'm looking for. I think I'm best buying the plant rather than trying from seed. I'm going on the hunt (virtually) today :heehee:

    Growmore Packaging Error

    True, Growmore always used to look more whitish grey in the past and came in a round granular form. Picture below is the Growmore we used to sell in the past, it was very clean with hardly any dust.

    Going off topic slightly, but I bought a lemon plant from morrisons last summer and picking fruit already. Their plants are really good value and quality if you get there at the right time.
