I’ve been a bit of a shop-a-holic this week when it comes to plants. Tuesday on the way home from our nature walk we stopped at Walmart to get some potting soil and look what else jumped in my cart…lol Actually I couldn’t believe the wonderful deal they had on these 5″ containers of perennials, only $4.00! Since I adore Hyssop and Penstemon this was a no brainer. As far as the Ice Plant, the salmon color was interesting vs the standard pink.
Then today I decided to go see what Lowe’s & Home Depot had in stock at the moment. It’s been awhile since I looked in the garden centers so why not? Well of course I didn’t leave empty handed from either place because there was stuff I just knew I could find a spot for in the garden. I didn’t buy much at Home Depot, just some Angelonia (which I love), the Daylilly and 2 large tomato cages which are hard to find when I need them. Then I stopped by Lowe’s and that was another matter. All the good plants were at the back still sitting on carts waiting to be put out. I was overjoyed to find the ‘Hummelo’ and who was I to pass up another Penstemon. Needless to say I have a mini plant ghetto on the patio table waiting to be planted. The ones from Walmart found new homes last night in the new garden. Okay no more new plants until fall when I plant bulbs. Was that convincing ? 😉
