Week Two – Site Visit: Morris’s DIY

Last weekend I visited Morris’s DIY, a successful DIY store and recent vendor of plants and gardening equipment/utensils:

From the beginning it was clear that this store was new to the realm of gardening, as their stock was a little limited. This visit also highlighted some of the pitfalls of outdoor gardening without sufficient expertise, such as plants not rooted deep enough, causing them to blow over, as well as unsecured top heavy plants in pots.

This store also didn’t sell anything that would allow for gardening in a confined space, indoors or outdoors. Not to mention, the bags of compost on sale were massive.
