GARDEN TIPS - Saving Money On Plants

I realize that it's far from spring time and thoughts of spring planting. However, this is actually the best time to start planning your landscape designs. You can ponder your ideas all Winter. And here shortly it will be time for prepping the soil for the spring garden.

Moving ahead to early spring, a lot of us will head to the nursery and garden centers like kids to the candy store.

Here's a little tip that can save you lots of money when that time comes:

Plants come in containers of 2, 4, 6 inch, 1 gallon, 5 gallon, etc. sizes. Plant price increases proportionately with the size of pot.

What most people don't know is that the plants in the small containers will reach almost, if not the same size as the plants in the 1's and even some 5 gallon containers by mid season.

With this in mind, you can save looooots of money at the nursery and still have a beautiful landscape or garden by Summer.
