I'm a scrooge at heart. Or as the other half says 'she's a tightwad'. I'm happy to spend if the need arises but if I can save - well there we go.
I do however buy a lot of gardening magazines. With the gardening magazines come special offers. An item free if you pay p&p.
Yesterday morning the postman brought me a perennial collection. 36 teeny tiny plug plants, & they were tiny. I'm not complaining, I paid I think £4.90 but they were so tiny - they were beautiful but no bigger than a 50p piece.
I spent a pleasant half hour in the garden last night in the rain with a gin & tonic potting up my collection. I received 6 each of the following -
Geum - Mrs Bradshaw
Delphinium - Pacific Giant
Foxglove - Excelsior
Echinacea - Primadonna
Lavender - Hidcote
Penstemon - Tubular Bells Mix
I have potted three each of the delphiniums, foxglove & penstemons up for a work colleague. The rest will be planted in the front garden when ready to do so.
I am now going to root through my magazine collection, I'm sure i saw an offer for two free dwarf butterfly bushes, I do wonder however, if I will ever find an offer for the five rose bushes I need for the front garden. Free with p&p paid of course. Doubt it.
Plug plants in the delivery box.
After potting up. Do you like my plant labels! he was right about the tightwad.
