|Gerber Daisy - a favorite of today's finds|
A friend and I made a trip to what she refers to as death row at Lowes and picked up flowers for next to nothing (as cheap as 25 cents for a six pack of impatiens). I know this doesn't quite count as living local, but she got me feeling like I was saving helpless little plants from premature death! Overall, I have done fairly well on supplying my garden locally overall, purchasing topsoil from nearby Shadeland Farms and purchasing plants and seeds from the locally owned G&M Pet and Garden center. Then, of course there are the free plants from nearby friends and family. So, can anyone blame me for saving some non-edible plants from unnecessary early death at the big box store?!?
