I try to avoid taking my partner when I go plant shopping. Mostly because I usually plan on piling plants in the space where he would be sitting in the car -- but also because he gets so confused as I walk past apparently lovely plants without even glancing and then go into hysterics over some strange little spiny thing.
Gardeners are very strange people.
(Also: A big thank you do Dobbies for naming Greensparrow Gardens blog of the week! I'm bursting with pride.)
