It's the time of year that gardens look stark and all the leaves have fallen from deciduous trees and bulbs are yet to bloom. Whilst there may not be a lot of inspiration to go into the garden over winter, it is the best time of year to buy and plant whilst the ground is easy to dig and plants can get some roots down before a long hot summer.
So where to go for your new plants? After all if you are planting a large area you're going to want the best quality plants at the cheapest price right?
