Talking about garden centers, we go regularly to several which are pretty close to us.I think that come under
"British garden centres " I will check this out later when I'm home.we head straight for the clearance corner . The shrubs and plants are all usually in good condition.ranging from 50p to £4 for a shrub.I spent £12 on two blue hardy geraniums a. Campanula and a achillia .these were all 50p each. This was a few week ago repotted them and they are now flowering and making lots of new growth.
Amongst this bargain spend I bought my two cream phormiums for my shady spot see Verdun I copied your advice to Mathew (I think it was) and also a pink stripe phormium.don't know where it will go yet but at £2 I couldn't ignore.£1-50 for a root bound lilly which has made me 6 plants. Two veronicas , each and the 3 hostas .
I shop at BRigg garden centre, Gilberdyke, a little further away Spring, and Woodthorpe. There are others too who I have not visited.they all I believe have coach parties and to top it all the meals are good.
