Garden centres that deliver around Newcastle?

I want to get quite a bit of compost/soil, and some kind of big planters or grow bags for vegetables. Last year I just bought bags from the supermarket when they were in stock because I don't have a car but I'd like to get a bigger quantity sooner this year. Anyone have a recommendation? It would be nice if I could use a local business but so far it doesn't seem that any of the independent places have the ability to order online and have things delivered. I have been looking at the usual suspects (B&Q etc) but I wondered if there was a better option.

    Small local garden centres might not have online ordering set up but it might be worth a few phone calls. They might be able to deliver for a big order, and the worst they can do is say no.
    Doncaster, South Yorkshire. Soil type: sandy, well-drained
  • You might try Dobbies at Heighley Gate - I don't know if they're delivering under current circumstances though.
    Last year I bought my grow-bags from Amazon - sounds a bit silly but I got them OK.
