3. Shop with a List

“Bring a list, particularly for hard goods, such as soil and tools. It’s easy to get distracted by all the choices and as a result, come home having forgotten to pick up all that other stuff.”

4. Inspect your Plants

“Always choose potted plants that are weed-, insect- and disease-free. If I see a perennial that has liverwort or moss growing on the soil surface, it’s an instant signal that the plant has been neglected.”

5. Bring Photographs

Shop with pictures of your garden, patio or balcony. They’re great for reference and can be very helpful when asking for advice. I also recommend shopping on an overcast or rainy day as it won’t be as busy. This results in more dedicated attention from the staff, who are usually being pulled in three directions at once.”
