Ros reports that Blackbrooks and High Banks Nurseries are delivering locally. Blackbrooks had compost yesterday (1st April).
High Banks request orders sent in by email: email@example.com
They are taking orders for bedding plants and vegetable plants. Get your orders in before Monday as that is the day they send the orders to the supplier, and delivery will be a week later. Include your telephone number. They will then do their best to work out a delivery route and divide delivery costs. Their web site is undergoing revision. They have no grow bags but do have compost as at 3/4/20.

And a tied spring posy
