    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'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.
