I shop at Walmart a lot.
In our area, they are the only "low-cost" store around. I do still shop the other stores, but only when something I want is on sale.
Same thing with nursery's. I try to shop around when I'm looking for a plant but (in general) purchasing from a nursery provides you with a much better plant for the money.
Every Spring, Walmart sets aside a section of it's parking lot for plants. With the Spring planting season winding down, now is a good time to start eyeballing the leftovers.
I mentioned this to SM as we stood looking at all the plant offerings at Lowe's Home Improvement yesterday. We had stopped there to check prices on deck materials and I was curious to see if they were offering any discounted plants.
So we swung by Walmart and as we strolled the aisles, I spotted the red "Reduced" stickers on some of the stressed batches of perennials.
50% off is right up my alley. SM wanted to pick up some other plants that weren't on sale but I told him to hold off for now.
"Wait another week. If these don't move soon, they'll reduce those too."
So if you're wondering what $30 can buy you, take a peak.
The most expensive plant was the Peony's for $5 and the least expensive were $1.73 for what SM describes as the "fuzzy daisies."
All in all, a nice batch of flowering plants to add to the front flower beds.
Do you think my supervisors approve?
