 This morning, on the way to visit Nutcutlet, we stopped off in Market Deeping at a roadside plant stall to beat all roadside plant stalls - within a few minutes the owner was showing me around her back garden, introducing me to her cats and finding special shadelovers for my garden - as the car was almost full to bursting I only bought one plant, a Lamium orvala with lovely crushed raspberry coloured flowers but I shall be calling in again next time we visit MIL.  The owner even offered to water my plants when we go away on holiday - until she discovered we live 80 miles away.  She had hundreds of pots of cuttings and seedlings, some very choice plants at bargain prices - anyone in the area should visit - it's near Tescos in Market Deeping.
