            No photo, but "Mrs Michael Hewett" bought a root of Lily of the valley, with 3 nice little shoots coming on it. (I will plant it because she is quite disabled now.)

                I did take a few pics of all the plants they had in.. I'll get on my phone and post them now

                  I'm sure you can zoom in on phones and see. If you want a list I wrote them out last night to Google it'll take me a few mins :)

                  I could buy and post them, if you don't fancy travelling to Wales!?

                            If anyone's got a " The Range " near them it's worth having a look.

                            They're selling all last years shrubs off at 49p.

                            We bought two dwarf Buddleias and a Magnolia Stellata.

                            They'd got........

                            Buddleia ( dwarf and normal ), Magnolia, Potentilla, Forsythia, Rhododendron, Azalea, Photinia Red Robin, Spirea, Caryopteris, Perovskia, Wiegelia and more I can't remember.

                            They've also got a good selection of Spring bulbs ( 5 or 7 growing ) in a pot for £1.49 each or 3 for £4.

                            Summer flowering bulbs ( dormant ) are all £1.99 or £2.49 a packet with deals if you spend either £5 or £10.

                            Sadly, no seeds yet though.

                                    Armandii, I know you're in Cheshire but I don't know what part.
                                    They've got stores in Bromborough, Runcorn, Warrington, Queensferry and Stoke on Trent.

                                    Sorry @Sheal , all I could found for you are Aberdeen, Falkirk, Glasgow or Edinburgh.

                                      Thanks @Anthony Rogers, :) I had done a search and saw Aberdeen was the closest, 113 miles away. :doh:

                                        They're not the kind of towns that are easy to get into and, worse, out of, Anthony. Warrington is 30 miles away but a real nightmare for traffic. Runcorn is a mass of industrial estates and housing estates, and my Wife used to call Stoke a "blot on the horizon":dunno::heehee:
