I restrained myself at the National Garden Centre today and was only buying two plants - Darmera peltata (it appears I am eminently suggestible as this plant has had a lot of press on this site recently) and a Libertia (label is outside).
On the way out I passed through the bedding plant area. I hadn't looked there - I seldom do. Something caught my eye. No, it couldn't be! Yes, it was! There was a small lotus plant in full, glorious flower. A lotus plant has been on my 'wanted list' for a good while. And the price tag? €2.95!!!
Suffice it to say that the plant is sitting in my greenhouse tonight!
