    Default Dobby's garden centre..Essex


    Done a solo visit to this garden centre earlier in the summer.not the most exciting of places but I do like old greenhouses as they become overgrown quickly with nature.typical I picked a hot day to go.they get a bit hot.i got into the old shop part too.a few interesting bits.its a small family business,or was.one that has probably been put out of business by bigger rivals and its location.

























































    I like to go where others fear to tread.

    How very strange!!
    I'd never thought of a garden centre explore but there you go and it's quite interesting too. Would hate to have been in there during the scorching Summer we've just had.

    I only know of one disused greenhouse/smallholding but it's not a patch on this one. Thanks for sharing.
    Full of meaty goodness.
