Called in at local LIDL store (after visit to Wilco's - just opposite!): good range of composts, seeds, toools etc BUT were already sold out of extending loppers by 12 noon!! * I asked a staff member to check but apparently only one pack reached the store. May be able to locate at one or other of their stores elswhere in county, but that involves extra mileage, bridge tolls, parking charges etc etc!!
Called in this morning, bout some liatris and some dutch iris bulbs, every bulb was perfect, no rot, not a manky one among them, 50 bulbs for £2.38. Very happy and confident that they will do well.
