|Clearance plants provide great value!|
I have a loose idea in mind, but nothing specific beyond what works best in sun, partial sun and shade. Sometimes these plants can look quite sad, but usually with a little water they will perk right up. My latest trip I spent just over twenty dollars and was able to plant in three containers and add several things to my walkway.
|Front Porch Urn|
This is an urn on my front porch. I was able to plant the whole urn for 5 dollars. It is pretty full and includes petunia, corkscrew rush and something else that I can't remember!
|Unusual planters can be so much fun!|
This is a bird cage that was purchased at a neighbors garage sale. I must say the only bird I plan on having is this little guy. But I added a coco liner and filled it full of impatiens that were $1 per 4 inch pot.
This is coreposis that I planted along the garden path. They were so pitiful looking that I only bought one at $1, I sure wished I had purchased a few more!
|Hosta for $1!|
This hosta also bought for $1 was added to the walk as well. They only had one and it was the first time I had ever seen a hosta discounted.
|Dianthus the Second Year|
These are dianthus. I bought these last year in the six packs on the clearance and was pleasantly surprised they reappeared this year as they were marked annuals. I am looking for some Sweet William to add between them and the mondo grass that borders the bed.
Patience definitely pays off when it comes to planting! What is your favorite flower to add to your garden? I also always have at least a couple of Boston ferns hanging although with the patio in its current condition I am looking for other areas to put them until the pergola goes up!
