A Little Reminder for Frugal Shoppers

August 29, 2008


Just a little reminder for you gardeners out there who are pinching pennies: many home improvement stores have slashed their prices on shrubs, trees, and plants right now. This is one of the best times to grab some discounted stuff. I almost always buy all my plants at this time of the year. Even if the plant is old and very sorry-looking, you can still cultivate it, as long as it’s alive and not diseased. I have nabbed plants for as little as $1, and they are thriving in my gardens.

    Great idea … I am getting in the mood to plant fruit trees, and do a (little) garden in the fall.

    Not only are they cheap, this is a good time of year to plant them, too.

    Some of my most beautiful perennials were dollar plants. They really take root and grab hold this time of year.
