Oh and as far as Nursery prices are concerned. It has reached the stage now where we can no longer afford to buy. I am sure that in these days of cutbacks and reduced spending power there are a lot of people in the same position as us. Have they never heard of the law of diminishing returns?
By the way I still sell my fund raising stuff at £1 for Alpines and £1.50 for border plants.
7cm pot is about 6 p, a label 1p and say about 10p for compost and fertiliser. Maximum cost per plant is 20 p. Work out the rest of the costs for yourself and see how much mark up there may be at a Garden Centre.
