Its about this time of year that we start buying our summer bedding plants. I'm sure I saw somewhere that they were being disposed of but why would they? It doesn't make any sense to do that. Do you have any insight into what's happening at garden centres?
One of our local independent garden centres is apparently taking orders over the phone and delivering plants direct to your door. Sounds like a good plan, possibly the larger ones would find it more difficult to organise.
Simply that they all had to shut as non essential business and people gathering. I was hoping they could just do the same as supermarkets but in all honesty it will encourage more people to go out in their cars and travel from area to area.
Just saw your post Jax, that's a good idea, hope other centres can so the same.

We've still not found anyone local to us selling what we want but this morning had to make a trip to FIL's senior living home. Have I told you how he went to hospital? Anyway we went home through our local town centre and OH wanted to call at B&Q as he thought they'd be open. They had the carpark cordoned off with a collect operation going on. As we passed the front door on the way to the exit we could see lots of plants inside. I'd forgotten till now so I'm off to B&Q online to see what I can find out. See ya!
Our local garden centre had to close but opened up an online shop to do home deliveries, but quickly became overwhelmed so had to stop that too. Such a shame as they had recently expanded and were doing so well with really good plants at low prices.
