Plant Sales: It's That Time Of Year Again!

I can't believe it's Spring! It seems like time has gone so fast this winter and now we're almost in April. Every time I open the door I'm surprised by how warm it's getting outside. Trips to the park are becoming more frequent and I'm absolutely excited to plant this year. It's slow going, but my gardens are looking better and better each year.


Buying plants at plant sales is one of the simple ways I save money on my garden each year. While I like to purchase baskets and flowers that are annual I have also picked up a few perennials and other plants to enhance the gardens.

Here are a few of the plant sales coming up:
