I am going to start a series about simple things to do with gardening.
These will include gates, plants and garden paths etc.
First is the joy of shopping at Morrisons plant department.
Christine is the person who runs this in Newark.
She loves her job.
She knows that ordinary people are able to enjoy good plants from her.
A few weeks ago they sold a Trellised Jasmine for £55.00 –that was originally £110.00
Often in the winter I cheer myself up by buying their special potted bulbs.
In summer Pinks are the best buy.
We need to “think out of the box” about where we purchase our plants.
Of course the special nurseries are there for the difficult plants.
But do take a look at what is available on your weekly shop.
Give yourself a little treat as you buy the weekly meat , fish and vegetables.
