A members request:- I used to have many flower pots, but since my garden has become so full I

have learnt not to buy new plants I have had no need of pots. But now I have no pots to put

new finds in the garden, or cuttings etc. etc. in for the annual plant sale.

Has anyone a glut they want rid of? Tina
