And in between new Aldi & Lidl is a Poundstretcher!  I'm looking forward to the plants/gardening stuff in Aldi.  Our Asda never seems to have any decent plants

Sometimes a newbie comes along and tells us their woes about an allotment theft or a bad gardener, everyone offers their sympathy and advice and the poster just leaves everyone hanging................
