Other reasons to take the short drive out -
- Large 10kg tubs of pelleted chicken manure (sometimes known as 'the organic Growmore) down from £14.99 to £4 - no, that's not a typo, four pounds - while stocks last.
- 25% off all Spear and Jackson tools.
- Perlite and vermiculite, essential for growing on young plants, also half price - both large bags and small
- Burgon & Ball decorative-yet-useful "A day on the Allotment" tool and tuck box, as well as their sturdy metal seed storage tin, both half price.
There were a lot of other half price bargains on my visit but these were the ones that caught my eye.
