I have always wanted one of these old GWR benches, for my garden.
I do possess a small, old, wooden wheelbarrow in my garden but it is on its last legs...or should I say 'wheels'!
So that was my trip to 'Fermoys' on Friday and I can't say that I was particularly enamoured with the place. Inside, it is filled with books, china and cheap 'n nasty fripperies galore!
I would much sooner visit an old fashioned nursery, with old fashioned service...and old fashioned prices as in my opinion these garden centres are having a laugh!
I also happen to live right near a 'Plants Galore'!
This place used to be incredibly cheap! And do I mean cheap!
On the way home from Fermoys, we called in there and I was astonished...their prices in many cases were higher than the local garden centre!
So what's going on?
On Saturday, having visited Exeter Flea market...that wasn't great either, apart from seeing Lizzie's ( aka The washerwoman) smiling face ...
we called in at Powderham ..home of the famous castle!
And... I was pleasantly surprised!
There was a lovely little nursery with very healthy looking plants and reasonable prices too.
