      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:

                Thanks to this discussion telling me about the company, ordered some plants (too many!) from Hutton Hostas. Arrived today - lovely plants with nice fat buds. And half price!
                Also a lapageria and cobaea pringlei from Roseland House arrived today.
                Oh dear, I have no self control :)
