Invested 29p on a packet of Snapdrogon seeds from Lidl and now have 25 healthy seedlings, surely the cheapest plants out there?
Tis great reading all the success stories of plants successfully grown from purchases at the various pound stores, but a word of warning, if your wife is anything like mine don't take her with you, or you could end up with 30 quids worth of stuff that you don't actually need but was a bargain...
I bought a tayberry some 4 years ago from one of the cheaper supermarkets for 99p. I planted it and now it gives me a wealth of fruit every year. Just cos some plants cost more doesnt always mean they are of higher quality or will perform any different. Just some common nouse needs to be applied when buying.
I bought 4 clematis at £1.85 each 2 years ago and they are good healthy plants that flowered really well last year. Just a bit of patience required and a little TLC as the plants usually have not had the best of starts in some of these shops.
