    O/T gardening question.

    As garden centres are shut.
    Any idea where I can get some grow bags?

    Off topic but I was accessing the Wickes website the other day and I was put in a queue for 2-3 minutes as they were limiting access. I think they are a bit mixed up by what social distancing means

    Here, one of the large supermarkets has a 'potting event' every year where you take along your pots/baskets and as long as you buy your plants there they will provide the potting compost free for you to do them there and then. Another victim of the virus the event has had to be cancelled so not sure what they'll be doing with the 1,000s of plants. Probably have them on sale or return so the growers will take the hit.

    My san marzano toms have germinated. Bit boring for some of you. But I have never grown them before.
    Different to what is usually grown here.
    Experiment really.

    Its ironic isnt it Crash ? All this spare time to get the garden into shape and we cant get the stuff to do it. Dont know if you saw it yesterday but thousands of poundsworth of plants were being destroyed at garden centre because no one could water them.

    As others have posted - Morrisons. At Parkgate you don't have to go in the supermarket. Pay at the kiosk outside - contactless. They didn't even scan the stuff I bought. Minimum contact

    Cheers all I'll give it a go tomorrow.
    As someone said a lot of nurseries are going tits up. Pity they cant let one at a time go in and help them out.
    They normally wholesale to garden centres and thats a no no
    So every little would help
