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 http://www.bluebellcottage.co.uk/plants/LAM100-Lamium-orvala 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.
I went there to blue bell cottage garden last year when on holiday tarporley near Chester lovely garden had to buy a few plants as well and nice scones too
