Gardening centre reduces huge planters to just £1 – but there’s a really mad catch

BUYERS were divided after a woman snagged an unusual bargain she spotted at Trago Mills.

The garden center and home goods store has everything you could ever need to dress up your space, even toilet bowls.

But Ali, who spotted the toilet bowls at her local shop, had other plants for them.

Post in the Facebook group Extreme Couponing and Bargains UKShe said: “Toilet pans, ideal as planters, currently £1 each at Trago Mills, Newton Abbot.”

The shopping fan shared a snap of one of the bargain toilet bowls on display with flowers inside.

However, it is not clear if Ali placed them there if they were already part of the exhibition.

There is a sign next to the display with the toilets confirming that they are shared at just £1 each.

Other shoppers were confused by the bargain loo, others found it quite funny.

One said: “Don’t you just love Trago lol?”

And a second quipped: “Is the stock ready to go? Lol.”

Meanwhile, other Facebook users started tagging their friends to let them know about the bargain purchase.

Oddly enough, however, it’s not the first time people have used unusual items as planters in their gardens.

One woman previously made her own giant planters from leftovers, which ended up looking rather expensive.

She explained how she made them on Instagram and amazed other DIY fans with her stunning creation.
