Now look at these little beauties... Ok, I'll concede the primulas are past their best for this year, but next spring they'll be gorges once more!
But as free plants go they're not bad..
Free because the council were replanting the municipal beds and these would be thrown away and they were happy for these (and others before them) to go to an alternative final resting place. Definitely a case of being in the right place at the right time.
I've also acquired some "Mind Your Own Business" from my dad's garden - he's happy to see the back of it and I refuse to pay £5.99 for a six inch pot of it, so it's a good deal for both of us! It's a great name for a plant too and provides hours of childish fun when MOH asks what it is.
Anyway, both have now been planted into what is fast becoming a full on flower bed...
