You are so lucky to have garden centres! Be grateful and put up with grotty santas once a year. Here we have "pepineristes".! It's the same old, same old boring plants, the tried and tested , never anything new or interesting. And they are closed on Sundays. Most of the plants are pot bound and so dry you are taking a risk buying them. Having said all that , in my local supermarket, i have just bought a camelia for 3 euros. It is pot bound, very dry but desparately still alive. I felt sorry for it so I bought it even though my soil is nuetral not acid so it's not going to be easy. Wish it luck please.
