British Garden Centres

Our local Wyevale is being taken over by British Garden Centres. Does anyone have experience of buying from them? Curious to see how their prices compare.

Re: recommendations for tomato varieties?

My all time favourite is Sungold. Lovely small orange tangy/sweet fruit. Second - Gardeners Delight. Never fails. I've also grown, this year, Salt Spring Sunrise which was very good - and a grafted Shirley - massive fruits but not quite so flavoursome. However, mixed in with Sungold, was a very colo...

Honesty plant

[attachment=0]IMG_20190831_093049612.jpg[/attachment]I was wandering around the garden and admiring the honesty seedpods shining in the sun and noticed that new purple flowers were appearing on the stems. Old seedpods and new blooms - is that odd? It's very picturesque.

Re: Summer Bits and Bobs

Well, I now have a lovely vase of sunflowers and dahlias - found broken off in the garden, due to the horrendous winds. But at least the power stayed on.

Re: Summer Bits and Bobs

Well, all the tall sunflowers and hollyhocks are now tied to various structures - so I hope they survive. I've picked all the large dahlia blooms - some were as big as a dinner plate.

Re: Butterflies and Moths - again

I've only seen cabbage whites in the garden this year in spite of planting lots of butterfly loving flowers. Mint moths are decimating my various mint plants, all except for the strawberry mint.
