    Hi there all.

    We are looking for a shop in south wales if poss that have a good selection of Tropical Plants.

    The few stores that are near us all seem to have the same stuff, but we would like to find something a little more interesting.

    Thanks.

    I've heard the MA's in Cardiff are excellent, but I've never been.

    The two MA's in Cardiff are both pretty good - the one off the M4 near Castell Coch is better than the other one in Wenvoe with regards to plants,
    There's a pretty good one (normally) just off the A48 from Culverhouse Cross
    MA in Bridgend is okish
    There's some pretty good ones in Swansea, but I'm not really sure where they are-a Google search might tell you more
    Have you tried looking at the PFK directory on their website? That's supposed to list all the aquatic shops by area-I've always found it quite reliable.

    MA @ llansamlet
    Mill Aquatics in fforestfach (obviously the best because I work there lol)

    Yah I know them 3, i'm in Mill & Fish & Things quit offen.

    ( Joecoral ) i'm in Burry Port.

    I would say plant wise of the 3 Shops that you said in the Swansea air, Fish & Things is best as they have a little more to offer an the prices are like £1.25 but thats per plant NOT pot. But will say that they are well rughted.

    I'm just looking for something a little diffrent, Not sure what but when I see it i'll know :lol:

    Thanks

    Stick to one shop and get on good terms with the manager and staff. Most Maidenheads, and other shops, will be willing to order specific plants etc, and are much more obliging to loyal customers!
