Gardeners! This is a good time to buy seeds. A lot of the usual places sell them cheaply in early January - and quite often it's fresh stock. I've noticed 50% off and 3 for 2 deals in local shops. Another advantage of buying now is that things you are particularly interested in are less likely to have sold out.
Lidl are not usually so quick off the mark - they put their seeds out in February. Worth looking at as some of their seeds are unusual and none are more than £1 a packet.
