I have an urge to visit a garden centre when it stops raining but I can't think what I'd want to buy.
Any ideas?

    Just have a coffee, if they sell them, and save your pennies for the spring B3  :)

    Bird food?
    Clay soil - Cheshire/Derbyshire border - where old gardeners often wet their plants.

    Scented candles, waterproof cagoule, cheesy notelets, a gadget you have never heard of that does something you don't understand.   All of these items in the fantastic sale now on.

    Fudge. Our local GC has three aisles of fudge.


    Failing that, stock up on FBB

    @herbaceous.  Mmmm,  cheese notelets,  they’ll go down nice with a cup of tea. 

    FBB and bonemeal are ground fertilisers,  don’t use if you have badgers foxes or dogs,  they love the smell.

    bare root shrubs, trees or fruit bushes.
