    Default Tomato Growbags

    Bought the last 4 Levington tomorite growbags in Poole Homebase on Sunday marked at £1.93 but went through at £1.43 each.
    Went to Homebase opposite Castlepoint Bournemouth today & they had a large pile of these without a price tag.
    Got an assistant to check the price & they were £1.43 so I bought another 5.
    They are twice the size of a normal growbag with added fertilizer so that seems pretty cheap.
    Might be worth checking your local Homebase.(there are at least 10 left at Castlepoint)

    Just googled these tomatorite growbags & found them on crocus & they are £55 for 8 (incl p&p) so I think I got a bargain.

    Isn't that over £9 a growbag Trish?

    Edit: Sorry, misunderstood. Just got it! You really did net a bargain!

    Just to be fair to Crocus I put 6 bags when it should have been 8 so have now edited my original post but it`s still £7 a bag.

    Netto have growbags in @ 3 for £3. Not sure if they are good enough for Toms but should be ok to seive & use in pots.

    That's also a good buy, suppose you could add to them to make them more nutritious. When I priced it up last year, it was more economical to buy bags of compost than growbags though.
