As my gardening year usually finishes somewhere around the middle of October, if not earlier, the clearing (sort of) and mulching of the Shady Corner in the front garden gave me a push to add some autumn/winter plants – combined with a Reward Card offer at our posh garden centre.

(The first reward was two free standard hot drinks, but only until 17th November.)

The second reward was 2 x 1 litre pots of helleborus Christmas Carol. (£9.99 from the RHS) for £8.

And then I spotted these heuchera – £4.99 each or three for £12.

I’ve never been to a garden centre in November before –  BUT who knew there were so many plants available to plant now.

I could have (but didn’t) spent a fortune.

Who else has been buying new plants or splitting old ones?

Who’s given up for the duration?
