Don't think the freebies with the supermarket special pack compare with those we get throughout the year, plus the 2 for 1 card and all the Voucher Codes for buying plants online ... but you pays your money and takes your choice

On my pack it doesn't say leave it for two days, it says if it hasn't rained by two days after applying it should be watered in and it will then start working - slightly different.

I presume a good heavy rainfall is always going to be preferable to a hose or sprinkler, but if you want to water it in there's no reason why you shouldn't.

Hello all 

When we moved here we realised that open plan and big windows etc means not a lot of room for storage so we swapped our bed and the spare double for ones with under bed storage and the winter duvets go in there.  However, winter jumpers need storing too ... I've got some Lakeland vouchers somewhere ........ must try a couple of those bags
