              Got these today Witch Hazel ( hamamelis Jelena ) for £31.50 :hapfeet: ( should be £35 I get 10% off now ) so cheap for the price should be more like £80 - 100 at least. And some Sedum matrona for £3 each for the front garden project.

                    Collected these today for the front garden - Eupatorium Snowball - 2x persicaria fat domino and 2 pennisetum fairy tails which I'll plant in the spring . My bulb order from parkers wholesale arrived yesterday got all sorts of bits and bobs .

                    I'd say they fit in my rucksack :whistle:, I've decided these plants have extremely good wind tolerance :heehee:

                      I love it, I love it. Reminds me of the times I have brought trees home in my convertible, from front footwell to out and over the back and boot. Thought the police were going to stop me once but they just gave me an odd look and smiled. :dbgrtmb:

                        I popped into another garden centre on the way home with all these hanging out of my rucksack, I wanted to see what could be rescued from the sick /sale section and didn't want to come all the way back to take a look. I didn't buy anything and were trying to get past the long queue and tills praying nobody stops me for thinking I am stealing .

                          Yesterday this arrived from Littlewoods store online. Have to order early before they sell out.
                          It's 45cm tall and was 24.99 pounds
