Save money at Spring Plant Sales.
Many public gardens and garden clubs hold plant sales each spring to raise funds for their organizations. Some organizations sell excess plants and some have the plants grown specifically for the sale. These plants are generally of a much better quality than the plants you find at your big box plant seller and often at very reasonable prices. Bring bags or a box to transport your purchases as they may not have any or run out. Also bring cash in small bills and arrive early as everything will get picked over and sell out.
