Impulse Pulses

How do you choose which plants to buy for your plot? 

On winter evenings do you study gardening books and plan the whole year ahead on a neatly drawn chart? 

Or perhaps you slavishly obey Monty's whispered suggestions.

Me? After running screaming from the toxic desert of Halfords I dive into the next door B&Q and impulsively buy the cheapest, most fragile sweet pea plants.  Together we escape the soul sucking maw of the out of town shopping development. Then my new friends take a relaxing soak in the sink, while I have a contemplative cup of tea.

Where am I going to put them?
