My bargains of the year was all of the items I salveged from B&Qs sale bins in the garden centres, Items that just need a little TLC to revive them, which they sell off for a fraction of the original price.

But what gives me great pleasure is ,to see them flower again.

Has to be the same as you - rescued plants from B&Q or Homebase.

Mine is a hanging basket with fuschia in. i found it with very dry soil, dried out flowers in the 'please rescue me' section in Homebase. Now it is thriving with over 30 buds ready to flower.  If only it wasn't so bloomin' cold I could enjoy it more!

My Local Car-boot often has flower and veg seeds for sale. A vendor comes with a couple of boxes to sell.

They are short dated stock, that is sow by this year or next. But T&M seeds, originally priced at around £2-3, whats not to like. At 4 packets for a £1, I think I can stand a few losses. Also at those prices, I can afford to try out unusual varieties.

Last year I spotted lots of different good sized clematis marked down to 75p each in Homebase. I bought quite a few and they are growing really well

Three French lavender, were £10 each at B & Q, reduced to £1.50. Have been lovely in pots all summer. Just needed water and replanting.

I wonder just how much money B&Q and the likes of all the other stores waste per annum due to a lack of inhouse care?

CluelessGardener

You thought it would pay B&Q to have a real gardner to look after there garden section in stead of kids and old men that know nothing about gardening.

My Dalih had 50% off when I bought it only needed repotting and watering now it's four times the size when bought and the flowers are fantastic
