Please forgive me if I have a moan. I want to treat myself to a nice new plant: for me, that means spending a fiver, I'm not rich. If I can't buy locally I have to add a delivery surcharge taking my order up by between £8 and £20. But I am not, as you might think, in Western Australia, I'm in the Isle of Wight. If I stand on a hill I can see Portsmouth, it isn't very far. So it's £25 for one 9cm potted plant. Thank you. I feel a little better for a grumble.
