Can anyone help me in my search for somewhere nearby, that's open either late evenings or weekends, where I can get simple basic gardening supplies, please (compost and canes, really. Nothing more fancy than that).
(The nearer to Gt Dover St the better, as if I can't carry it home I'll have to tie it on to the back of my scooter somehow).
It's a lot easier for me if I can get the heavy stuff from nearby. A bag of compost just about straps onto the back of my scooter, but it looks (and feels) a but unstable and so I don't like to chance my arm on longer trips in case I end up having to justify to the police that I'm not dangerously heavily laden. And I can go to B&Q for canes.
Has your rustrider rusted itself to smithereens then? I could pick up some bits and pieces for you in the car from time to time if yo like. For tomatoes I suggest a visit to the farm for manure. I try and avoid peat-based compost as it is unecological and doesn't contain that much nutrient.
Car fine, and looking forward to returning to its natural environment (at the Big Apple). Just don't like to drive it in London, really. It always seems such an effort. Got a nicely sized bag of peat-free compost strapped on the back of the scooter on the way home with the smallest of detours (thanks Jan). Just need to get more canes now, and we're sorted. Will do that tomorrow.
