What a waste!!!

What a loss of beautiful plants!!!!

My close neighbors aren't plant people so can't put them there! The two neighbors who do enjoy plants don't want to winter over plants for me 'cause they have problems with aphids and I don't, so they don't want my plants to get infected. They do spray but aren't able to control the little pests I guess. Or it's a good excuse for me not to place things there I'm not sure!!!! LOL

My sun perennial sale has now gone to free and I still don't a have a lot of takers!!! I have quite a few plants left and hope someone takes then so they don't get distroyed. I have moves just about everything I can to other places in my garden so don't have room for anything else!

I'm even doing all the work of moving plants to my sister in law's and replanting for her to get rid of some more. My brother just had surgery and can't help and she has bad knees so can't do much.

I think that most people around my area don't know that September is a great month to transplant.

Such is life I guess!!!

Call your local Habitat for Humanity office. They have plenty of new home owners that would be thrilled to get new plants. And if you donate directly to the office you can have a tax deduction!

If they won't take them try some local garden clubs.

Thanks for the information Teresa! I have a call in the HFH local number and will hopefully hear from them soon.

Ameriprise - the company I work for - builds a house for a Habitat family every year. I didn't work on the house this year but at the dedication I brought six pots of pink coneflowers. The family is from Ethiopia. They were thrilled to get them for the side of the house.

You might also try churches, schools, and your local park.
Good Luck!
