It seems as though yesterday was National Gardening Day…well while I may be a day late with my post, you won’t be a dollar short with this tip!
Last year when I was getting my plants for the yard at Lowe’s I stumbled upon a clearance rack of plants. Some were even marked 75% off! I couldn’t believe it. They were exactly the type of flowers I was going to purchase for $2/6-pack and were on this wonderful rack for only $0.50/6-pack. So what makes them clearance? Well they’re not as “pretty” as the full-price plants. Some have flowers missing and others are smaller than normal, but with a little TLC they grow up to be just as nice as the others. I mean we still have the entire season for them to become “pretty” 😉
This year, now that I knew what a great deal I could grab, I was sure to look for the clearance rack at Lowe’s. It was loaded! There were perrenials, annuals, shrubs, decorative grass, hanging planters…everything! It wasn’t 75% off, but hey, 50% off is still a good deal in my book! And they even had the impatiens I needed for my shady front yard!
I ended up getting…
6 – 6pk Impatiens
1 – 6pk Petunias
2 – Perrenial Shrubs
1 – Perrenial Flower
2 – Martha Washington Geraniums
All for only $18.25! 🙂
