To help keep your garden looking amazing and stick to a budget, here are 7 easy ways to save money at the garden nursery this spring.
Buy smaller plants than larger ones at the nursery. They are easier to establish and cost much less.
Buy bare root plants where possible. They are easier to establish and cost less.
Split larger perennials that you purchase. Some larger perennials can be split immediately after purchasing so a $20 plant might give you 4 plants at $5 each.
Buy plants from the sale section that may not look amazing. You can buy them at a discount and nurture them back to good health. Avoid plants with pest and disease problems though.
Buy perennials and shrubs at the end of the growing season when nurseries start selling their stock off at 40-60% off in preparation for winter. As long as the ground can be worked, you can plant.
Buy summer annuals that will look good in both late spring, summer and fall so you don’t have to buy more annuals in fall. Choose a color palette that will bring you spring through fall instead of one season only.
Use more native plants in beds as they will thrive and last longer in your climate without assistance from you.
