My garden has also benefited a lot from the casualty corner of the garden centre. When I started off, I just wanted to fill the garden without actually taking out a second mortgage. Some things died, some things turned out to be invasive and virtually impossible to get rid of. Some thrived and turned out to be garden gems. I leanrt a lot and became a bit more heartless about getting rid of unwanted plants. Now that my garden is basically stocked, I find myself getting choosier, wanting plants that give months of colour and that have beautiful form.
I am in the same position, but now have lots of unwanted things - often what will be quite big plants/shrubs etc. A lot are currently potted up at the end of the garden whilst I hope that a neighbour really will finally have them (he keeps saying yes, but doesn't seem to have any plans).
Just hope the local Church have their plant sale this year, we're not really car-booter people! (we visit only)
