The 2 Begonia £3.00 each
The Alpine £2.98.
So, I should of got £9.97 off the final bill, but only got £5.98 off. The girl at the till sent me round to customer care/returns desk as she didn’t know why this happened, the young lad explained that the till took off the 2 cheapest plants, Well Duh, i knew straight away, it was my fault. I should of put the 3 dearest plants through first, and paid for them (are you following) i would of got £6.99 off then the other 3 through, giving me £2.98 off!! Anyway, the lad said, I can do this for you here and now, and gave me £3.98ish back, Awww isnt that lovely of him.. So if you go To B&Q for this offer, dont say you weren’t warned lol…

Took the words out of my mouth Shirley, I`d got some of the cream left we had with our raspberries today.
I do like the look of the Cannas Ydd, a great bargain I`d say, and will enhance your already beautiful garden.

Those Cannas are just the right thing for that bed aren't they?! I want that black one!! Gorgeous! Mind you the other two are lovely as well...where could I put something like that?...Young daisy, your garden is beautiful, it's really inspirational!

Your garden is looking really lovely, if I go to b and q I shall ask for the very nice man that sorted out your bill!

Love the cannas, your garden is looking beautiful :)

Just after we moved here a couple of months ago we went to B&Q to get all the paint and wallpaper for the house when they had it on 3 for 2. Because we bought so much we were crafty (crafty by name...) and took 3 things through the self-service checkout at a time and saved loads of money like that. Also saved a bit more by dragging my dad along with his over 60s card :D The workers knew what we were doing but didn't say anything hehe.

Cor that is definately crafty and very clever Emma, Daisy your garden is just so lovely what is B&M and is that where you got the wall plaque??

I haven't seen any recent pics of your tropical border Dd, last ones i saw were fab, it was filling out and you have a much better selection of tropicals than me, i have to compromise up here. I think the trick is to pack it full to bursting lol..
