National Herb CentreWell with a name like that how could I resist. I mean a Herb centre but National ! Who could possibly imagine the delights that lay ahead in a National herb centre.

Well I could not believe my eyes as I walked through the magnificent front entrance. The scankiest excuse for garden centre on the face of the planet. Bucking current trends of great facilities, huge ranges of garden paraphenalia large stocks of plant, there was practically nothing. A poor excuse for a shop, plants that were dead and dying ravaged by insects, I know its close to winter but hey. A childs play area for those children with the attention span of a goldfish.

Its only saving grace was the coffee was really nice in the coffee house, even if it does take 15 minutes from point of order to arrive.

But despite this the car park was full (everyone was in the coffe house though).
