99-cent Perennials at Canadian Tire
I dropped by Canadian Tire to check out the weekly specials and was pleasantly surprised by the selection of 99-cent perennials. I got several plants which are hard to find in my area such as, Lobelia Cardinalis and Helenium. I also picked up various Rudbeckia and Galardia cultivars or hybrids and Campanula (Canterbury Bells).
I had started a bed on the side of my property two summers ago and didn't know what to plant there. I prefer buying smaller, inexpensive plants until I can gauge the growing habits and the way a plant will look in a given space and if I'm not pleased with it I'll get rid of it or move it to that area of my garden which I call "Plant Limbo". If I do like it, I will sometimes invest in a larger specimen of the same plant.
