Gardening on a Budget
By: Julie Day
Choose Plants Wisely
Consider the type and size of plants to save money when shopping:
- Look for Discards: When I worked at a plant nursery, I couldn’t stand to see a plant go to the compost pile, so I took many of them home. Granted, most of them were discarded for a reason, but those that survived turned out to be beautiful specimens I never would have otherwise chosen. Check with your local garden center to see if they have any scraggly plants destined for the dumpster.
