Where do you buy your plants?

Just received 3 excellent foxgloves from the secret gardening club, and last week I found myself at handley rose nursery, I've bought lots of roses from them ( bought 3last week too....don't know how it happened....) great healthy plants,excellent service and guidance,good prices. Having complained a lot about t&m they have replaced the lily bulbs that only half grew, nothing else yet, and they didn't contact me at all...I do like a plant sale, esp hardy plant society, usually get a few nice hardy geraniums and astrantias

Thanks scroggin and zoomer, think am going to pay my brother to strip and just see what under grass next weekend,once we can see it,s safe I can go up with the children, I will tell them at the association, I,ve had a bit of pain in my thumb joints for years, but last weekend I badly sprained my ,good, hand literally couldn't,t fasten my clothes, tie my hair up, change a nappy...that eased after a few days but ,bad, hand is painful, just affects me so much not being able to ,do, I had horses for years ( probably why my body is wrecked) just need help to clear ( there did seem to be a lot of black plastic somewhere under lots of the plot) then hope I can do a bit, want to move some stuff we have here to their, fruit and flowers

hello all am genuinely worried how we're going to start at allotment, the wrist/thumb was so bad because i have arthritis in my thumb joints and at the moment I'm struggling to do anything except the very basics, I can't imagine how I'll handle strimmer etc or do much digging, I'll be a real lightweight, I can't even pot a few little plants up at the moment, tomatoes desperate to go in big pots but can't do it, am feeling really really down as gardening is the thing that helps me stay upbeat, if I' stuck inside I have a real tendency to get depressed and anxious, I'm being really crap at the moment, sorry

some of mine are 6 inches tall, a couple 2 feet, with awful weather doubt we'll see flowers for at least a couple of weeks
