B&M shoppers are scrambling to the shop after woman bags massive plant haul for a quid | The Sun
A SAVVY bargain hunter has shown how she takes full advantage of B&M allegedly never watering their plants.
The discount store always has stacks of plants at the front of the store.
But they often look as though they have just been left, with people noting in the past that it seems like they are never watered.
And one woman has explained how she uses the situation to her advantage, as she shared a picture of the masses of plants she'd manage to get from B&M for just £1.
"B &M don’t bother watering the plants they sell, then they shrivel up and they reduce their price a lot," she wrote alongside the snap on the Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK group on Facebook.
"If you buy perennials you can clip off the dead leaves and rehydrate them!!
