Took myself off to the Wyvale GC near us this afternoon as it wasn’t fir to do any more gardening and I didn’t want to miss out on the bargains. I didn’t do quite as well as Amy, but did manage to get 6 Cyclamens for just £1, A Pyracantha for £3, a gorgeous purple flowering Hebe for £2 (no name I’m afraid) and a Heuchera Plum Pudding. I just wish I’d had room in the garden for more, as it is most of these will have be put into tubs/lrg pots. While wandering around I did notice a very colourful member of staff, singing beautifully.

Hope the weather isn’t too bad this weekend ad that you all get chance to enjoy sometime in your gardens. :)

Well done Waddy! I've got GC vouchers, which I usually use to buy Christmas tree. But it's going to rain all day again tomorrow, so I might go shopping for a cold frame and see if there are any bargains to be had while I'm there. Don't Robins have a beautiful song! :)

Just looked up Wyvale Sandra - our nearest seems to be Carmarthen! By the time we got there they'd be sold out of bargains.

Pam; That sounds like a good bargain! Perhaps a bag of compost for Christmas? Only joking lol!!

Sandra; Rehearsal? Have I read you right?Sprouts already! When on earth did you put them on?

Karen; Go for it girl, you deserve a cold frame and a bargain or two. Yes, they do sound wonderful don't they? especially on a cold wintery day.

Stera; Oh dear, that's a shame, still think of what your saving by NOT being tempted :)

Well done Gralew, your GC must be a lot bigger than ours, nothing like a Padders outlet, not even a cafe!

Thanks Gail. They have a Cotton Traders, Peacocks(too young for me), a huge Restaurant, and guess who's coming today.....Yes it's Santa!!!!!There is also a kitchen shop(can't remember the name at the moment) and an Edinburgh wool shop on the same site, so it's well worth going and not too far either.

A good afternoon out,Julia.and love the Robin ..well done on those bargains.Would that be what I know as the Coley's GC by any chance? If' so, we were there.in August,and there were only two cars in the car park,and one was ours ! I could be on the wrong one of course,as there are others,but I know it's near to you ..good luck with the Pyracantha this time :o) x

Waddy, I owe you an apology.....I called you Gail, sorry Julia!My neighbours D-i-Law paid me a visit just before I typed the thread.....guess what her name is?!!!!Congratulations on the birth of Eliza by the way!more photos soon.

25 Nov, 2014

 

No Bloomer not Coley as it happens, but do call there again if you're passing, they've got new staff and a far better carry on. It's much more worth a look nowadays.

Amy, please stop! I've no more room!! and I can never resist a bargain, no matter how much I don't need it lol!

Gralew; Lol! You're forgiven and I'll keep it in mind about the photos.

Waddy I've been pushing them in gaps and am secretly worried as to what might already be there as I can't tell now the majority of the plants have died down !

26 Nov, 2014

26 Nov, 2014
