going back to price of plants.. i have not bought any plants form a garden for a long time..so have no idea of their price.. i am trying to gather plants form seeds.. (as in the seedshare) cuttings and swaping with neighbours.. and any i grow and dont need i sell at top of my garden at 3 for a £1.00 or £1.50 - £2.00 for the larger plants..and they go like hot cakes.. brill.. then the money goes into buyingmore compost and seeds. a good rotation system i think..  and the fact i sell unusual plants (that cant be got a garden centres here as they very restricted in choice) as well as the annual bedding ones..

this year i sold £325 worth of them.. loads of compost, seeds and all otehr garden required needs..
