No idea because I have not been over on Camposol since March.

The garden centre on the Bolnuevo roundabout is a lot better, they have a brilliant selection of very reasonably priced plants & shrubs.

There again I don't know what their stock is like at the  moment.

Not very helpful..........sorry

We have been to the 4 local ones we know of in the past 2 weeks.

Camposol B - good for basic plants, pots etc. Good stock 2 weeks ago. Plus solar light couple selling on Thursday mornings.

Country club approach - better selection of statues, figures etc, good stock of plants, also sells variety of timber.

Pto de Mazarron - good selection of plants, less so the statues.

Bolnuevo - our favourite as they do a loyalty card. Good all round stock.

We made it a round trip and did all 4 in the morning, think some close at 2 just now.

In my experience with Garden Centres here, -  don't expect too much variety in choice of plants. They all can only obtain a limited range,mostly imported from Holland.with a limited season of availability just as in UK.. You won't be able to obtain many favourites you had in UK. though. Some plants do very well here : Roses of all descriiptions, Petunias/Surfinias (even in hanging baskets)Grey foliage plants to set off your bedding plants, long lasting and well worth the money. Summer and Winter Pansies/Violas, -  but plenty of small plants are just not viable for long.The sun will dry out and kill them quickly, as will over watering. You need to ask the owners about frequency of feeding ,watering etc. as they know best.Happy gardening !
