A complete plants package - without a hefty price tag Landscaping supplies can cost you an arm, and a leg as well as your patience. Adding up the price of plants, the time deciding which plants are right for the environment, not to mention the to-ing and fro-ing, loading and off-loading â€“ well, it can leave more than your budget broken. So, we were pleasantly surprised when we discovered thereâ€™s something like flat pack furniture, but for the outdoors. In short, itâ€™s a complete (and affordable) plants package that provides you with what you need to create an entire garden, including plants, shrubbery, flowers and trees. 20-06-2019 more >>
