Went down today. Good selection and very tidy with packets in bundles secured with elastic bands. A few more packets to join the massive bag of seeds I already own.

I was lucky went for some hormone rooting compound.  Seeds were still on the display racks so a real pleasure.

There is another thread about the sell off of the stores, where I have made some very cynical remarks about their accounting.

My freezer is already full of seeds.

Thanks for reminding me! Unfortunately not such a seed fest as usual, I spent 7.50 and most of those were Sarah Raven flower seeds! Glad they left the packets on racks, made it much easier to see them all, but I'm a bit disappointed in the veg selection, I've still got quite a few gaps in my wants list!
If it's not pouring with rain, I'm either in the garden or at the lottie!
