Where to buy plants in Surrey (not a garden centre)

Posted: 03/04/2016 at 10:05

Hi Leif - we are almost neighbours.  Forest Lodge (next to Birdworld) is also very good - definitely a GC, not a nursery, but independently owned and most of the staff know about plants (or know to call over someone who does)

Beechgrove has started

Looking forward to catching up with it tomorrow evening (always record it on Sunday am).  Perfect end to a weekend of gardening.  

Have met Mr B too, and can second the fact that he was a really good sort - not celebrity at all, a genuinely nice guy. He came to give a talk at the local gardening club - scheduled from 8-9pm .....10.30pm and he was still going strong. The chicklets thought we had been kidnapped

Oh Dove ((hugs)) back.  Peaceful and pain free is good, but heart wrenching for you.  Feel for you all.

Thanks to the rest of you for your support too - you really are a special bunch

Weeding, weeding, weeding......but I can see light at the end of the tunnel. Very pleased to find my echinacea emerging before the slugs noticed

Hi folks. Just in from a therapeutic weeding session.

Had a bit of a tricky week.  Mr C had his investigation - turns out his new chest pains were caused by the stent they put in last December blocking up (a rather alarming 98% blockage).  So they put another couple of stents in, and now we cross our fingers.  Can't quite believe they let him walk round for 4 whole weeks (with 2a&e ambulance admissions in that period) without considering that as a possibility.  Working my way back round to positive thinking after a shaky few days.  Feel very tired

I think, sadly, that they did not have enough visitors to make it worthwhile keeping it staffed to be open- most of her sales are now via plant fairs.
