B&Q Bargains

djjjukdjjjuk Posts: 211


just got back from B&Q where i found lots of packs of 6x primrose and polyanthus for just a £1 each. all look quite healthy to me and should come back year on year if i look after them properly. what do we think?

some have yellow leaves and the compost looks dry.

i also got 2 sets of 5 raspberry canes, an autumn bliss and tulameen:


those were £3.50 each.

do they look healthy enough? the autumn bliss needs pruning to the ground, is that right?

    They all look fine to me - bargain! image

    I cut my autumn-fruiting raspberries down to about 12" from the ground. 

    I think Tulameen should be treated as Summer fruiting.

    I bought this climbing rose from B&Q at the end of Autumn, its called "Penny Lane".

    I gave it a bit of a snip here and there and planted it, its doing very nicely. Not bad for half price!

    This photo was taken a few days ago, its the only thing flowering in the garden.

    I too have bought B and Q bargains this last 2 weeks, 3 Varieties of Gaura which were over £6 and Penstemons all for £1 each. The plants had been cut down but were growing healthily from the base. I bought primulas £1 for 6 a couple of weeks ago, planted them into planters and they look a bargain. Leaves more garden funds for special plants later in the season.

    After the first day on the allotment was cut short at lunch time due to heavy rain. I bought a pair of wellies from B&Q today, they were nearly half price image
