How To Score Affordable Plants


Did you know that most nurseries and big box hardware stores have clearance racks for plants that are a bit disheveled? It would take a miracle (or a whole lotta Miracle Grow) for some of the clearance rack plants to survive, but often you can find diamonds in the rough, like this large geranium that was marked down from $22.99 to $11 because the hanger attached to it was broken, and it was kind of smushed on one side.
I didn’t care about the state of the pot since I was planning to transplant it anyway.
It was perfect for the urn on our front path.
Geraniums are great for continuous blooming throughout the summer.
Add bedragled clearance rack plants to your containers with other thriving plantings, give them some love and in no time they will be strong and healthy.

Great tip. My favorite Japanese Maple was a sad reject on clearance at the end of one season. It is so pretty now.

The clearance rack at Lowe's is always the first place I look! Wish Home Depot did that too. Your urn looks beautiful!
