Stacey - you'll remember today for ever
The GC was actually a family run nursery called Simpsons Nurseries Ltd at Fordham near Ely - http://www.simpsonsnurseries.com /
I shall sing it's praises 'cos it was fantastic - acres of wonderful sturdy plants of all sorts, including lots of 'more interesting' ones - even the pots of bulbs including lots of different varieties, not just the more usual ones seen at the big name GCs. And the value!!!!!!!!!!!!! Absolutely amazing. I'm sure that what I bought would've cost me double in Notcutts or Wyvale!!!
Ok, here's what I bought:
Clematis - 3 for £10 - 'Daniel Deronda', viticella 'Purpurea Plena Elegans' and 'Will Goodwin' - not big plants but healthy and sturdy with lots of shoots and buds.
Pulmonaria Silver Bouquet - pink/blue flowers with lovely silver leaves £4.50
Viburnum Bodnatense Charles Lamont - what looks like at least a 3 year old plant in bloom for £7.00
