But not everyone is happy about this new discovery. One woman shopping at a Wyvales in Dorking yesterday said: “It’s amazing. My husband has never shown any interest in gardening before, but now he’s out there night and day fussing over his heathers. Frankly, I preferred it when he left the garden to me and wasn’t so frisky.”
She’s from Dorking?
