I heard today that you cant get grow bags in france, or bird seed and now have read a thread that you cant get cream....
I think I will open an Ex-pats shop.My phone has more Processing power than the Computers NASA used to fake the Moon Landings

You most certainly can get cream here Nog, I didnt get to this size just with the help of beer and red wine (although they have contributed).
Bird seed I have definitely seen as well, although will confess to never having tried to buy grow bags, so cant comment.

Life's disappointments are so much harder to take if you don't know any swear words.

i've never ever found real cream here ...only the soured stuff or UHT liquidy stuff.........can buy bird seed no problem but have never ever seen a grow bag.....(but who needs them?).there was an ex pat shop (van) down here i've been told but it went out of business.
The only thing i really miss is Assam Tea ...i can buy ceylon or earl grey but not assam , so the suitcase gets filled with that whenever we come back from engerland

Only 3 weeks till we go, hopefully one day will be spent terrorising Bobspongle and seeing his local garden centre.
We have never seen grow bags over there but you can buy cream and indeed bird seed.

You can't get Marmite or suet in Crete.The river Trent is lovely, I know because I have walked on it for 18 years.

We can certainly get bird food here but not peanuts for birds. I am with Jardiniere - never found real cream here. There is indeed thin UHT stuff and creme fraiche but none of the double extra thick cream you get in UK. A couple of friends and I are going to try and clot cream so I will let you know how we get on.
There are many things though that I would miss if we ever had to go back to UK to live. I guess what I'm trying to say is "Vive la diference"A garden is a lovesome thing, God wot! (Thomas Edward Brown)
