Got back this morning with shopping bags groaning - I got three 5m cloches (the sort with hoops) for 3.49 each, 10 metres of fleece for two quid, a pair of garden clogs for 2.99, and best of all loads of veggie seeds at........29p a packet!!!! Have had success with their flower seeds in the past, so am going to give the veg a try. I got all sorts, from beans and peas to kohl rabi, melons and gourds, so will let you know how I get on.

All I need now is to get the allotment!

I got some stuff too - had to fight off all the oldies who were in there snapping up the cheap gardening stuff too. Some of the over 65s can be quite lethal with a shopping trolley and a walking stick when getting bargains I got a cloche, two lots of fleece, a couple of window boxes for my herbs, and a kneeling pad. I wanted one of those cultivaters becuase they were 4.99 but there was only a couple left when I got there (10.00 am) and it was handbags at ten paces for those

I got 4 cloches ( 2 to use, and 2 as spares), and a mini greenhouse thing. (the lower one, for 12.99)
They didn't have any fleeces here.

Also did my easter egg shopping!
