How do you garden when you run out of potting compost and other essential supplies and all the garden centres are closed? Online, of course. Alan Titchmarsh has been urging us to support the many small nurseries which will otherwise go out of business but although they may have wonderful plants, they tend not to sell what are called ‘sundries’. I did quite a lot of browsing the other day and it’s very complicated. Some companies are sending seed but not plants and vice versa. In the end I went for companies I’ve used before and there’s at least two weeks’ wait on all orders. Good for them for keeping going at all.
