The £4 story


Having peeled the spuds, cut up carrots and cabbage and put the lamb in a slow oven I decided to treat myself to a run up to one of the GC’s just to browse around.

On route there were roadworks slowing the traffic down, so I turned off and headed for the longer way round clipping the edge of town.

I then encountered another hold up, as I was moving about as fast as an arthritic snail I noticed I was next to the turn in for B&Q. I decided to have a look round there instead.
Having never been there before I took me a while to locate the garden centere bit, once found I headed straight for the clearance area.
I got 1 large Solanum Glasnevin £3
2 Heuchera Palace Purple 20p each !!!!!!
2 Lantana Lucky Red Flame 20p each !!!!!
1 Salvia Aurea Golden sage 20p

Solanum now planted in a large container with the bottom cut out in a sheltered sunny area.

I have planted one of the Heuchera in a big tub with a Lamium Album in front of it, the foliage contrast is brilliant.

The rest will have to wait untill next weekend.

What a haul! Lovely! I sooooooooo wish we had more GCs here! A trip to the only reasonable one (with no guarantee of finding what I want) is a whole day trip, so I have to write a list and hope to find at least HALF of my requirements! Those lovely Heucheras will soon bush out with TLC. :o)
