• My Beef with B&Q

    B&Q Tower garden

    The B&Q garden was a showcase of fine, well-grown plants, so why-oh-why is it that every time I go to a B&Q the plants are either dessicated or drowned – unless I get there immediately after a delivery.  B&Q is known for its good eco-credentials, but putting energy into growing good plants and then failing to care for them properly is extremely wasteful. Maybe they should be giving grants to horticultural students who can then manage their gardening sections.
