Rated 5 out of 5 by London Lady Delighted with my purchase
I am very pleased with the whole concept of Garden on a Roll, it could not have been better or easier.
The nursery supplying the plants phoned twice in advance to talk me through the product and to arrange the best delivery day.
I was really impressed with the contents of the kit, right down to trowel and gloves: it is "no excuses easy".
My garden had been neglected after a building project so it has been a wonderful way to restore it quickly with excellent plants. My only other comment is that there were some lillies (I have a cat, cats and lillies don't mix) but as I had not informed the nursery, I cannot complain about that, they are now a gift for a friend.
I would recommend this product to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Redlilocks Absolutely genius!
For someone like myself who really can't be bothered with the research but still wants a great looking garden border, this product simply can't be beat. Homebase basically does the hard work for you - choosing the best plants for the best time of year you are planting and then makes it easy with all the products you need plus an instructional DVD. We got ours in August and the mix of plants was lovely and healthy with a great mix of colourful flowers and shrubs.
It was a full weekend of work for us as we were replacing our garden fence as well and clearing a lot of existing plants/weeds/ivy but the actually planting was a breeze and only took the best part of a day. The biodegradable template shows you which plant goes where and how big to dig the hole - you get fertiliser as well. The only thing we needed to purchase was some good quality compost to go on top. Even with the plants still young/small, the finished border looks impressive and very professional.
Overall, a brilliant product and 3 weeks later, it is still looking great. I'm also pleased that there were evergreens included so the garden won't all die off in the colder months. Really eager to see it progress next year and would definitely recommend this product to others.
