Just thought I'd let everyone know about some bargains I managed to grab recently.
Two (two for the price of one) easy-fill hanging baskets for just short of £12 (including delivery) from Blooming Direct. From the interweb so not recieved them yet, but if they are the real thing I will be a happy bunny. Going to try one planted up with strawberries and one with trailing cherry tomatoes (just got to order the tomato seeds).
10 strawberry runners FREE. Well, £4 worth of clubcard vouchers.
One rasberry 'tree', from the description it should fruit this year, the canes are about 6ft tall. One bramley apple tree. £3.99 each from Aldi.
Seeds, 39p each, couple of packets of stocks, Californian wonder peppers, marketmore cucumbers (REALLY hope that these are true outdoor cukes, as I only have a PVC growhouse). These were the only veg seeds left that I was after that were left in stock. Aldi again
Spring onions, 50p, ASDA.
Think I'm also going to go a bit mad and swop £5 worth of clubcard vouchers for a £15 T&M voucher so I can get the seeds I'm short of (peas, red & yellow tumbling toms, beetroot & resistafly/flyaway carrots, pumpkins).
Now I just need to get OH to drill some holes in a couple of old buckets so I can plant up the trees to protect the roots until I get rid of the brambles over the road, then they can go in with the fruit trees I already have (not so much of a bargain, but still not hugely expensive) from ideal world.
Just thought I'd share. Daren't go near wilkos though, that would properly bankrupt me!
