Wyevale - Horrfically overpriced!
« on: February 18, 2004, 17:08:40 »
I live in Croydon and we have a Wyevale nearby. I had to go in there the other day and was disgusted with the price of the seeds/potatoes/ onion sets etc. I normally go to the "Greenfingers Club" which is a shop attached to a local allotment site. i generally find their stuff to cost about a half to a quarter of that in Wyevale. The only problem is that they are only open for a couple of hours a day at weekends.
Does anybody here go to Wyevale, or a similr centre?

There is a Wyvales close to my mums, and the only thing they are good for is a visit pre-christmas with the kids as it is like santas grotto, and a nice cup of coffee.  They are outrageously over priced.

Don't know about Wyevales as haven't found one yet!  Does anyone know of good garden centres in Bolton/Wigan area because as new lottie owner i've not yet found a good one that doesn't charge ridiculous prices :o

Hi Sparky!

Brilliant one t'other side of Todmorden, on the Rochdale road!! But name escapes me at the mo'!!  ::)

Very reasonable prices and fantastic selection of veggie seedlings, toms, peppers etc , which I found very handy when mine failed to germinate !!  

Might be too far out for you?? .....but I'm almost an hour's drive away...... well worth it!!
