I stopped in Lowe’s tonight to get 2 ferns for my porch (on sale for $7.50 each this week). And check on Valspar paint since they were offering a $5 rebate AND I had a $5 coupon from the FREE Valspar sample I got in the mail. :)
On a whim, I walked to the back of the garden center where they put discount plants and was surprised to find a HUGE table FULL of markdown plants!
Here is what I got:
These 4” Begonia plants were marked $0.50. BUT there was a huge sign on the table stating that everything with a yellow tag was 75% OFF the ticketed price! What??? $0.12 for these plants!! I looked around to make sure there wasn’t a mob about to attack and began filling my buggy! :)
They looked like they had been bitten by the frost we had a week or so ago, but when you cleaned off the few brown leaves, the plants looked very healthy! I got 10 pink plants.
They also had 6 ct. packages for $0.75 so $0.19 after discount!
I got two white 6 ct. packages and two red 6 ct. packages.
Then they had these beautiful white flowers, not even sure why they were on the markdown table? But they were! And were $0.50 so $0.12 after 75% off discount!
I got 10 of these as well!
I plan on “babying” them with some extra water and fertilizer for the next week or so before I plant them. Just to get them looking good as new! Looks like I have a great head start on my Spring gardening! :)
Have you ever bought discounted plants? Did they stay living for you?
And what “Frugal Find” did you find this week? I would love to read about it in the comments!
