Clearance plants - savings thrill
The past few weeks I have had a lot of luck finding plants on the clearance aisle at Lowes. Whoever the vendors are here, they are very over zealous about what they consider to be a damaged plant. Besides that, no one seems to venture into the clearance section at my local store, it's all the way in the back, yet the deals are amazing.
I found big beautiful Boston Ferns and Hydrangeas for $4. Jackson Perkins roses with multiple canes for $6, pansy *flats* for $3, day liles for $2. OMGosh, the deals. They were rolled around in the wind was the reason for being on clearance (hahahaha). All of these things were snapped up and are doing fine in my garden. The day lilies especially got me, they all had multiple healthy buds on them but were marked as clearance.
I remember the older woman behind me heard the clerk telling me the prices for the different plants and was amazed. She heard $6 for the JP roses and couldn't contain her self. lol
Any other stories about your best deal on plants/garden stuff?
