It looks so lovely and healthy Bjs...I have the little low-growing types and i love them, but this is a stunner....I was looking on Hayloft Plants and 'marsha' is £9.95 for 1 plant....quite expensive, i think...then postage as well.....

I bought it about a month ago from B&Q they had just come in think it was £7.99 not more than £8.00 .
Saw a guy a while back who I recognized from a local G.C buying a load of plants in B&Q wonder how much he marked them up.

Same as the small traders buying in bulk from Tesco and Asda they can often buy for less than it costs them at wholesalers

This variety does not open wide like a lot of other Gentians when the sun is on it you can just see the centre.
