Save Money With These Gardening Tips

ID-100270280Starting your garden by planting seeds? Head on over or call your local library first. Libraries are implementing a program for seed rental. You rent a package of seeds, plant them and when the plant has matured, pay it forward to the library by bringing back seeds from that plant. If you library does not offer this program, why not ask them to and be the first to donate seeds.

For plants that are already established from little to big. Many garden enthusiasts may be redesigning or thinning out their garden and have an over flow of plants they want to give away. Check out Craigslist.org and put free plants in the search box for your area. You may see some plants for sale from local farmers that are at a good price and free plants. Also Freecycle.org allows you to search in your area and even post a wanted ad for free plants, mulch etc. Speaking of mulch, look for a local tree trimmer who may not mind driving by your house and giving you mulch for your garden.

Howdy Neighbor

Talk to your neighbors about plant cuttings and plants they many not want. A neighbor of a friend of mine knew my friend loves plants and gardening. Last weekend the neighbor came over with a small Banana plant she did not want anymore and dug up from her yard.

Yes, you can have a plant Guarantee

Your local garden centers like Lowes and Home Depot offer a one year guarantee on perennial plants. If the plant does not make it the entire year, take it back with your receipt and get a replacement.

If you garden you need tools

You can make your gathering of garden plants and all the extra’s all in one place or you can check out your local dollar stores for things like, gloves, tomato cages, shovels, hoses, planters and even potting soil that may be cheaper.
