The perfect garden centre?
I recently took my friend to my favourite garden centre, (a real gardener's garden centre where the plants are healthy and the staff don't give you a blank stare when you ask them where the vermiculite is.), but he was not impressed. He took me to his favourite garden centre today and I hated it; full of plastic herons, overpriced plants and expensive pre-moulded 'granite-look' fibreglass ponds (they did a mean afternoon tea though!). This got me thinking: What is the criteria for the perfect garden centre?
