My broadband speed has gone from 2.6 or so to 21 plus with fibre optic broadband. With haggling I am paying LESS now than before .........with grit, sincerity, probing and threat of cancelling you can get fantastic deals
i guess my visit to the local gc this morning may well be one of my last. Bought a number of small perennials....lupins,malvas, lychnis, etc.....to pot on to make really large plants in a few weeks. However, they were expensive. Even with points accrued on my account they really weren't great value. Couldn't haggle any discounts either. I wanted the plants so bought them.....in the long run they will still be considerably cheaper than buying them later in the season. Online for me in future with these perennials but I can propagate these anyway myself so my local gc will lose out. Their full size plants are enormously expensive now.....online including postage they are so much cheaper. It's not about us supporting our local gc's......it's their pricing policy that's driving them out of business.
