Oh well jealous :lol: Some nice plants there and those aeoniums are fantastic icon_thumleft

I can't wait for the weather to improve, nothing beats a good trawl around a G/centre or better still a nursery.

Did you purchase anything Rob?

Hi Rob

Yes its great at Braithwell nurseries isn't, I go there quite a lot from spring onwards.
He has loads of great stuff.
He can keep you there chatting quite a while though if he considers your gardening knowledge worthy enough to talk to or not.

Its the only place in the area I know of that has a great exotic selection, but then again he hates bog standard cottage garden plants.

He has a good knollage of plants and design, they are always good quality plants and would recommend anyone to visit :D.
I buy a lot of my stuff from him and he always has plants that are not the run of the mill. :D

I agree.
Whenever I go and ask have got one of these or have you ever seen this. He always seems to be able to pull one out from somewhere on the nursery.
He's even dug plants straight out the ground for me.

Defo recommend anyone living in Rotherham to go have a look.

I'm definitely going to have to go looking at some of that suff - something nice to do during February half term I think.
Do you have any other local recommendations anyone?
