Its great to read about all of you and how you do your garden shopping and how the garden enriches your life no matter how well or otherwise you are. Do you also, like me sometimes buy plants at the supermarket when you do your weekly shop. I went to do my Easter grocery shop at a local supermarket last Friday morning and purchased along with food etc, two pots each containing 3 hyacinths about 2 inches tall looking strong and healthy. I could not resist them and now they will sit in my conservatory so that I can enjoy them when they bloom. Then they will go into the border to keep flowering year after year. I have done this in previous years and when I bravely ventured out into the garden a few days ago, looking like an Eskimo with all the clothes I had on, I saw some hyacinths in bloom which I planted a few years ago. What a lovely surprise, it made my day. There are so many ways you can buy your garden supplies and we should make use of them all, whichever suits us best.
