Bargains...














Veronica Speedwells
These little beauties were rescued from Homebase last month where their destiny was hanging in the balance. They were in the Reduced section for 30p each and were looking very sorry for themselves. Despite their straggly appearance and browning stems they still had the strength to yell "Buy Us" as I walked by and being the sucker for a 'plant sob story' that I am, I decided to give them a chance.
Well I'm glad I did, I chopped them back and ...Ta-Da ...result.
I've planted them in a sunny spot in our slate path. They're only about 6 inches tall at the moment so you need to be sunbathing or have had a fall in the garden to truly appreciate them but if you can get down that low they are stunning.

You sound a lot like me, I cannot pass up a good deal or a sad-looking plant with a grim future in a garden center! You get a great job! I am so glad I found your blog, I really like it! Look forward to following in the future! Happy Gardening! Mindy

Well done! I too am a bargain hunter. My most recent bargain was a Cactus reduced to 25cent in Tesco.
