B&Q is doing 20% off plants this weekend if you want to spruce up your garden
B&Q have 20 per cent off outdoor plants from tomorrow, perfect if you fancy a spot of gardening.
And with the weather set to reach the low 20s over the Easter weekend, it's the ideal time to exercise your green fingers.
The sale covers all of B&Q's range of outdoor plants including everything from fruit and vegetable plants to summer bedding and large feature plants.
The retailer says that there will be hundreds of plants on sale in total.
It's running from Thursday, April 18 to Monday, April 22.
Some of the best bargains include:
- Easygrow nine pack of summer bedding plants – was: £3.25, sale price: £2.60 or four for £8
- Patio Roses – was: £7, sale price: £5.60
- Planted Hanging Baskets and containers – was £13, sale price: £10.40 or 2 for £16
The 20 per cent off deal is valid on top of existing money off or multibuy offers – so if you keep your eyes peeled you could nab yourself a double discount.
The only outdoor plant items that aren't included are seeds, turf and bulbs.
B&Q doesn't have any outdoor plants on its website, so you'll need to go to your nearest shop to take advantage of the deal.
There are nearly 300 outlets in the UK and you can find the closest one using the store locator.
Top tips for saving money in the garden
THE best money saving gardening ideas from the Sun Savers community
- IRENE EMERSON, from Grimsby, says: “Buy perennial plants for the garden that bloom year after year instead of spending money on annuals that only bloom once then need replacing.”
- PAUL SHEPHERD, from Nottingham, says: “Instead of throwing your old coffee grounds down the sink or in the bin, put them on your garden as they make excellent compost. Also slugs and snails hate them if you put them around the bottom of plants.”
- MARGARET JELLEY, from Newcastle upon Tyne, says: “When throwing out old footwear hold on to the laces as they make great garden ties.”
- GARY TIDD, from Southend, says: “If you haven’t got many flower pots for your seedlings, just cut the bottom off plastic milk bottles to the required size. Put drainage holes in and away you plant.”
- DELIA MAY, from Barnstaple, Devon, says: “Want to stop cats using your garden as a toilet? I save, then wash, dry and crush eggshells before sprinkling them on the soil. It works a treat.”
- HETTY RIGG, from Middlesbrough, says: “To keep your cut spring tulips looking good for longer, put pennies in the bottom of your water vase.”
