Tesco, homebase, b&Q etc or some online supplier? I just need usual petunias, begonias, impatiens etc.

Always b&q tbh. I don't really use annuals in the groud but buy loads of lobelia, mini petunias, geraniums and the like for the pots.

I like to go first thing in the morning and hunt for bargains. One year I managed to do all my pots for under a fiver as every thin had been reduced to 20p.

thats is great. Do you also get compost from B&Q?

Yeah always. I've tried other brands but it's not as good. One year I bought compost from Lidl and it smelled like sewage so I stick to what I like now smile

We are lucky here.
Our greengrocer/butchers in the village has bedding plants and some perennials
Local twice a week Blackwood Market has a fantastic plant stall. These plants are great quality, reasonably priced and the dad and daughter team are helpful and friendly.

Green grocers in nearby villages also carry a good range of bedding plants.

If I have more money to spend i go to garden centres with a cafe, though I would buy unusual plants for the beds or shrubs.

I love Crocus online and the big nurseries like Thompson and Morgan do some great offers too.

I don't like Wilkinson's, the plants aren't looked after.

All of my plants are in the garden waiting for the nice weather this weekend. I am so far behind, most people are well on with their baskets though they aren't outside yet.

I love this time of year, enjoy everyone!

We usually use B&Q or our local Aldi but recently purchased some from a charity called TCV, The Conservation Volunteers. Only been in a couple of weeks so can't review completely yet but seem decent so far and were reasonably priced
