    Didn't spot the cacti yesterday but wouldn't have been able to carry them anyway.

    Picked up the wellies as spares last week, and bee-keeping boots next summer; neoprene is not fun over 25 degrees even if they are great under 5 degrees.

    And was heading to a monthly meeting when I realised that the town hosts a large Wilkos where bulbs have previously been available, unlike my city stores. Grabbed some to go with the others I bought earlier elsewhere in the season. 

    Bulbs all half price though the wellies were £5 instead of £12, which is a clue to quality. But OK for beekeeping.

    I've just been in my local Wilkos, bulbs are half marked price, and seeds are 5p a packet. I don't really know what Rocket is (though I have heard of it) but it looks like I'll be growing some next year.

    I've got the photo on the packet, that'll be enough until it grows up. Just hope I can distinguish between that and all the other weeds that turn up in my vegetable patch. :)

    Rocket- strangely all the stuff in the supermarkets says 'wild!' Cultivated and wild?? 
    Quite small leaves and strong peppery taste- and not cheap..
    Quite distinctive leaf shape mainly

    Wild rocket (diplotaxis) is a short-lived perennial, rocket (eruca) is an annual/biannual if it gets through winter. It'll survive outside in winter with a little protection. Wild rocket had smaller and hotter leaves.

    Both are quite spicy.

    My local Wilko was disappointing, no seeds at all and only a few bulbs left. I did manage to get some already sprouting saffron crocus though, I haven't had any luck finding stock of them anywhere and wanted to give them a try this year so hopefully they'll make it.

    there were still some packets of bulbs yesterday.

    I never saw any cheap seeds at all- I think they would have gone weeks/ months ago as this is a small store and they were filling their shelves with all the 'seasonal' stuff so lack of shelf space often dictates what is reduced.
