Well...(pause) I have used T&M a couple of times this year and have been a little disappointed I must say. Alot of the seeds I planted have not germinated and the ones that have done are very weak while others from another supplier are very strong.
I have used Dobbies in the past but have now decided to leave them to their own mass commercialness. I was given some vouchers by me neighbour last year when i moved in. Off I went...very happy and bought some garlic, dalias and gladioli. I came trotting home very pleased with myself and started planting them up. The garlic were mouldy, the gladioli had a worm in it (and not your friendly 'howdydoday' worm) and the dalia lasted about 6 weeks and died.
I have a wonderful local GC 4 miles away who are always good for advice, help and suggestions. I now give business to them. They are a little dearer but I feel I'm supporting a local business as well as being meet with a smile and always a 'Good morning'
