Candytuft

dian57(M-H Valley NY-5)May 13, 2005

I had a landscaper come in and tidy up some neglected spots in my yard. In the process, he enlarged a section of a bed against a fence that I had planted fully with clematis, hyperion daylily and candytuft as a groundcover.

Needing more candytuft to fill in the area, I visited Devitt's yesterday. $10 for each 6" pot. Wow. For $10 each plant, I wanted to know exactly how many I'd need so I went home to look over the area again.

On the way home, I passed The Landscape Shop on 17K and pulled in to check things out. Same size pots of candytuft--$3.99.

That's some difference. I bought a bunch and will be back today for more.

dian57 - is there only one Devitts? I was planning on going there tomorrow. Is the Landscae shop far from there?

Thanks for posting this info!

Devitts is in New Windsor on route 32. They changed things from years ago when I brought my boys to see Eggbert at Christmas time. Now there are two separate buildings--one for bulk landscaping supplies (mulch, stone, soil) and the retail building. They have a terrific selection and a great guarantee policy on live plants.

If you follow 32 toward Newburgh and make a left at the light on Broadway, you'll come to The Landscape Shop on your right. Broadway turns into 17K along the way. It's a good drive. You'll pass Stewart Airport on your left. The entrance is near exit 6 of route 84.

I like looking at their selection of statuary and garden accoutrements as much as their plant selection. It's worth the trip to see both places, have fun.
