Good garden centre/nursery

Posted: 09/01/2015 at 14:26

Hi Nic

parking essential. Coffee shop. Good variety and turnover of annuals. Good range of pots. clean and tidy. No old stock. Helpful staff. Range of seeds. A USP like a particular plant specialised in.

Examples of garden centres I'd highly recommend are reg Taylor's in normanton, hollybeck near southwell and ruben shaws.

Lyn I love the sound of your Parka.  A coat with memories must be very special.

Runny - we call that Pocket Bingo.  A fiver or more calls for an air punch!

I reckon after its flowered. If you do it now you might lose some flower buds and also expose it to a chill.

Anyone just can't bring themselves to chuck away an old favourite item of clothing that you garden in?

Had these jeans for years.  Just finished patching them up for the fourth time! 

Love em!

There was a case of this in my parents village. So many cats died that the police are now involved. I hope they catch the heartless, pathetic individual.  The local people have also set up a group to hunt the criminal down.

If I ever caught such a cruel and ignorant person doing this I don't think I could be responsible for my actions. Those that do this are either stupid or plain evil...or both!

Help with Foxgloves please.

Mine have sprouted new leaves since last season but the snow has turned them a bit black. Gonna leave them to do their own thing until it's warmer. The damaged leaves probably act as some form of protection for new growth below.

Great question. I'd like to grow them for the first time too. They are in the Sarah Raven catalogue for 6 rooted cuttings for £8.50.
