A Slice of the Good Life

I can't resist a bargain, this pretty buttercup yellow Kalanchoe houseplant was reduced from £4 to 40p in our local shop - now that's what I call a bargain.  A few other 'sale' items I have picked up just recently


Two large hanging baskets for this years Tumbling Toms reduced to £7
A metre long Grow Cover reduced from £30 to £10
A mesh cloche for £5 reduced from £15
and a propagator for £5 from £15

You just have to be in the right place at the right time, and if you are lucky you find a new pair of wellies for £4.



I also picked up a great book in the sale at our local garden centre

which is full of really useful information from growing to cooking, preserving to making your own products.  So although I have had a little spending spree the total cost didn't actually amount to very much and I am delighted with all my purchases.

  3. Get those bargains girl! You did good. LOL!
    I love your yellow Kalanchoe. I have 3 that are 2 years old and they have never rebloomed. How do you get yours to rebloom? Do they need to spend time in the dark for a while?

  4. I love a bargain too. I don't know why, but it's always a lot more satisfying when you get a good deal. I do like that Kalanchoe, by the way.

  5. Excellent bargains there. But those Wellies are just to 'die for'. LOL. Love them.

    Hope your winter is going quickly and we can get back to gardening soon.

  6. Lucky you Elaine, nothing beats a bargain, well actually thats not quite true is it cause had it been free it would have been even better but heh it is so wonderful to get a real bargain and I have to say the wellies and book were! BTW I do hope when the wellies are full of mud and god knows what else that you won't show them off from your draining board?

  15. I like bargains, too. And I am so drawn to blooms at this time of year I have to be careful. I have often regretted my purchases afterwards. Your sunny kalanchoe is very beautiful!
