Great Time of the Year for Bargain Prices on Plants

Plant Sale by jaimekop

This is a great time of the year to get bargain prices on plants. Though the ground in many areas is still able to be dug to enable one to plant, few people seem to realize that one can still plant perennials, bulbs, shrubs and trees. In fact, this is a great time to plant. Besides saving money on plants from nurseries that desperately want to get rid of stock, by planting in the Fall, you are giving your perennials, shrubs, trees and bulbs a head start in root growth. And bulbs need to go in at this time of year so they get that cold snap that produces flowers in the spring.

This GardenLady continues to hear from Russell Gardens Wholesale that many of their plants are 50% off. If you want, check out their site but I am not sure they list the plants on sale.

If you have friends you want to share bulbs with, the wholesaler Van Engelen Inc is having sales on their bulbs.  See here.

Even regular nurseries and stores are having their sales. Last year at this time I bought some fancy hellebores at ridiculous prices. So treat yourself and don’t stop planting until Mother Nature tells you to stop. You will know when that is because “she” will freeze the soil too hard to be dug.
