    I need a few new £1 buckets for some larger planting next month , Cannas etc . To my horror I found they are now £1.50 at Asda . Does anywhere still sell them for £1 ?

    TIA

    B&q still do them for a pound. Morrisons do the flower buckets 8 for a pound also.

                  I too have a bucket price to add. In the the 99p shop they're 9 - oh wait...... They don't have any. So my small hardware shop have some for £1.40, plus your return ticket to Gillingham and back, food, magazines, taxi to hardware shop and back to train station with said 60 buckets - I think it may be better if you stick to B&Q to be honest..................

                          B&Q's £1 are currently orange (used to be black). At least, they are in my local B&Q.
                          I think the Wickes ones are still black. (Just in case you don't want orange ones, worth checking.)
