as much as i love our garden centres here where you can spend an hr or two wandering around or maybe have a coffee, they can be very annoying in that unlike the old nursery type garden centres we had they do not seem to cater for the yr round garden.
today i went to get some seed tray at our local garden centre, i could get plants, seeds, pets, clothes, even pets clothes lol but no seed trays, when i asked the assistant she told me that they dont stock them till the spring, as thats when people want them .
Janette also had similar experience when she went to buy a certain type of compost only to be told that its a seasonal product.do these large centres only cater for the occasional gardener, sometimes i wish i still had the wee nursery beside me, where the staff knew all about the plants they sold and were so willing to offer advice on which was the best plant for the type of soil you had in your garden. has anyone else had this experience of not being able to buy everyday items for the garden?
