Have recently purchase three hardy fuchsias for £1 each. good sized plants with nice roots in three inch pots. They need a bit of hardening off but I think that they are rather better value than the tiny cuttings in one inch pots at 90pence each in the garden centres.

They main issue with supermarket plants is whether there is anyone at the store who knows how to look after them in less than ideal conditions.

Just bought some astilbe plug plants 6 for 2 pound seemed reasonable

They had RHS Perfect for Pollinators plants on offer yesterday evening - £1 instead of the usual £2 (which would still have seemed a bargain to me!).

Bought three good size verbena bonariensis to replace the ones the cat has destroyed!

I bought an Agastache 'Apricot Sprite' today. Good sized plant for £2.Did want 2 but they only had one left.

I have bought my clematis from them, magnolias for £6 each. I only buy what I want but find their selection good. I usually pot on the plants before planting out. Astilbes last year which are coming really strongly this year.

Not lost any

I found/find Morrisons Plants a great buy, no problems at all. I got climbing roses for £2 each & also two trees in the sale £5 each, all doing great. Good value for money.

At least  they don't have any bugs on them or any surprises later on like, mould, root worms etc...

I was chatting to the guy in Morrisons who looks after the plants the other day, and he had a really healthy knowledge of gardening.  This week I got a feathery Acer for only £3 (a bigger version of which I had looked at at the garden centre the week before for £50!), a Eugenia for £2, and some lilies - 3 in a pot for a £1, so you really cannot complain!  There were loads of different healthy looking plants in this week...but am trying to pace myself...

I have bought a ton of plants at Morrisons over the years and none of the shrubs or clematis have thrived, they have mostly remained stunted and show poor growth.
The annuals are ok.
