Poundstretcher is good for pots and trays too. That is where my latest arch came from. May not last a lifetime but worth a pop. Also some massive trig tubs to from my French beans in!

My other half seems to be wanting to harvest seed from a picolini that he has from M&S I'm thinking he doesn't have time to do this. What do you think?

I'm thinking and only a thought. A one sleeper high bed for flowers then 2 high for the veg. So lots of slow neat growing evergreens for winter then suppliment in spring/summer. Depends if we can source sleepers, hedging such as willow and soil without it costing more than my mortgage !!

Why I never buy online

Agree agree agree. I'm 31 and only been gardening my own garden for a year. I'm addicted to garden centres , and the cafe's . Had a week
Off work and been to a garden centre nearly everyday.

I look in my garden and think... That's from there, that was a bargain from there and that was bought on a ruddy rainy day from there. I research on the net but always worry that I'm not getting what I'm seeing!!

I do order seeds in the Internet (mainly ebay) I have saved 2/3 of the cost for my dad by ordering from the Internet. I hope that doesn't make me a hipacrit but sorry purse winds on seeds and plants quality from garden centres!

Last year I discovered a bedding plant called gazania kiss series. Seriously good plant that I hardly watered and it bloomed its heart out. Aldi have miniature plugs of these for 1.99. They are like a large daisy flower. I'm addicted and just set 20 bronze seeds tonight! I have 100 kiss series to sow hopefully tomorrow. I don't have room for them all but I figure I can make family smile by giving gifts!
