Stargazer lillies £2 (had been £4.98) in local B&Q. There are three in the pot but one is snapped off but there are still two beauties still in flower with four more buds to open.

You're definitely the bargain queen, Shielar. Lovely blooms - I bet they smell wonderful.

Absolutely gorgeous scent Ojibway - I've stuck them in the porch for now as I don't want to disturb them whilst they're still in flower - but the smell is just lovely.

I've been keeping my eye open for 'Stargazer' I used to have them ages ago. Their scent is gorgeous.

Lucky you, you will be able to split them and then you'll have 3. Grrrr

Mind you, there were lots of rubbish there as well - you know dead petunias £1 a pot, dead dianthus £1 a pot -but I always like to have a rake to see if there is anything worth buying and today I struck lucky!

Never mind the rubbish Sheilar, you still got a good bargain. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Do keep telling us where there are bargains. My local B&Q never has any good brgains, whilst the one 30 mins away has loads of good stuff. I got lots of bulbs for 10p when Focus was closing down, Homebase is also quite good.

Well it's almost the end of the season now so I suppose a lot of places will be clearing their stock. Think I'll have a look in Wilkinsons, see if they've got owt!!!!

I bought the exact same ones from B&Q earlier this Summer, and they look absolutely stunning. Great bargain. My B&Q ran out of lilies ages ago.

I am looking forward to mine flowering again next year.
