Gardening is different things to different people. I get much more pleasure from a plant I have raised from seed, or cutting. By raising lots of plants, I am happy to try them in situations which may not be ideal, and am often pleasantly surprised by the outcome. I would not be so happy to do this if I had paid a lot of money for a plant.
I do enjoy an online shop though, to buy something unusual. In winter I seem to spend a lot of time looking at plants online. It is a lovely way to spend some time, particularly with a glass of something for company.
At the moment am waiting for a consignment of bulbs to arrive, always good when they arrive.
