Guess the price I paid for these today  ...

Popped into a UK supermarket for some cream, came out with 2 Penstemons. Then went to a German supermarket and bought 40 Dwarf Narcissi, 20 Crocus Mixed and 25 Chionodoxa.

I've had lots from that supermarket this year,Shirley,and can't fault any of them...in fact,I saw those similar to yours yesterday,but I was very restrained...lol. I might be persuaded next time I visit :o) Thursday is a good day..delivery day :o) that's if it is the same one I go to !

Sandra, the 'M' supermarket is not one we ever shop in but, as it was on the way back from a tip run we called in. I was ever so pleased to have found those Penstemons. Both planted in a border now. The only way I'll be restrained is by not shopping there ... :o)

We often go to the 'M' supermarket,as we have two in our area..I do like their plants too,and they always seem well cared for..We also have two 'A' ones close by ,so spoilt for choice..no complaints about any of them this year..We are going to a traditional Cinema tomorrow afternoon,to see 'Downton Abbey'..which still has an Usherette,and Icecreams etc at the Interval,not to mention the Organist ,plus a cuppa with biscuits as you pay the grand ticket price of £4.50p for concessions..! we shall be parking in a free'M' car park..Lol.We know how to live oop north ! Lol xx

Ha Ha ,Shirley..not quite ! but I do remember those ..Lol..Farm shop for a brunch beforehand,..what I call a perfect day out ! :o)

Sandra can I come too!! sounds just my cup of tea and biscuits!!!!
We use M all the time, or the Germans!!!(@_@;)we have a good choice here even a lovely new M&S food hall right next door to a lid!!!!!! and an Ice....
You can't beat M for their pies and meat, also great fish counter!! Oh and their plants, although I missed the Penstemons, went to visit the Germans last week, but. ヽ((◎д◎))ゝpicked up a large grass for silly money! so can't complain! (ʘᴗʘ✿)

My gardening bargains continue ... went to an ex Wyevale GC today as it is now a family run place. All the Wyevale stock of compost/soil conditioner/chippped bark etc. are on at 50% off so we bought 6 bags of compost at £3 per 50 ltr. bag ... happy am I!!!

Sounds like we are on the same wavelength.Angela..Lol..We did some shopping at 'M's after the film,which was lovely,by the way..didn't see any plants I wanted today ..probably not much left after the weekend..did get a 4 pack of their Clotted Cream scones though ! :o) like you we are spoilt for choice :o)

Shirley,believe it or not the Adverts were by 'Pearl and Dean' but in colour ! I just giggled when they came on..quietly though,in case someone 'shushed' at me ! lolWhat a bargain with your compost too ,well done :o)

16 Sep, 2019

 

Sandra, not sure which is funnier, you stifling the giggles or the adverts still being by 'Pearl & Dean' !!

17 Sep, 2019

 

A bit of both Shirley ,you were definitely in my thoughts !..Lol x
