For anyone looking to fill in beds check out Home Depot and local nurseries for great sales. Lowes-no sales.

We are here almost 2 years and still getting used to what grows well in this climate. Now we have somewhat figured it out Home Depot & local nurseries have awesome sales.

This weekend at Home Depot bought perennials $1.99 & local 75% off. We have warmed up again-will keep them in the shade and wait till it cools off again to plant.

I can never find any good perennials on sale at Lowe's or HD in late summer.....I guess the heat here is just too brutal in summer and they just end up losing the ones they don't sell or something. Guess I should try again this year, though!

Our Lowe's has no sale either, because they have absolutely NOTHING to sale.
The remnants at HD are pathetic and not worth getting.

Our local nurseries have good stock at great prices.

We got some great deals at Home Depot $1.98 for bugle weed-and not on it's way out to put me out of misery. At a local garden center a huge azalea-list price $70.00-got it for $13.00. 2 big pots day lilies-$4.00 & change-hostas-gallon pot-$3.00!

I wish you all lived in my neighborhood. I have perennials for FREE. I dug up several Iris clumps, both purple and a peach colored one that is fragrant. The needed separating but now I have no room to put in the leftovers. I also have loads of daylilies. One is an especially pretty burgundy. I have tons of Jacobs Ladder as well. It seems to love the soil here. I started with one and now have at least 10.

Our Lowe's has perennials for 3.33, good sized ones, I bought a nice Foxglove the other day. Menard's closed their garden area several weeks ago.

I watch the paper around here and buy my Hostas that way. I got two the other day for $ 2.00 each, huge plants. They let me take whatever ones I wanted, they were getting rid of them.

Glad to hear about the Jacobs Ladder, I planted some for the first time, now I have a long wait for Spring to see how it comes back.

I wish I lived in your neighborhood, too. LOL I'd probably be happy to take at least one of everything!! It would also be fall planting time, which it certainly isn't here. We still are too hot and now have been too dry to dare do anything yet beside water. The Forest Service has been watching a forest fire near us very carefully because its been so dry. So many trees are looking brown and loosing leaves prematurely in the neighborhood. It seems that many plants and shrubs all look suddenly wilted in the last day or two.

I guess I will have to start looking at the deals at the local HD and Lowe's as well as the nursery centers in the next week or so and hope they are keeping things watered enough if they are already stocked. Luvvarkansas I don't remember too many plants being available until much later than this last year. It may just be too soon for Lowe's and HD to carry plants for southern gardens. I'm hoping to get back to a native plant nursery as soon as the weather improves, too. Last year I was still reworking the garden well into November.

The Jacob's Ladder in my old garden was a wonderful plant to have, I'm glad it's thriving for you, Newdaawn. In the meantime enjoy the bounty and hopefully you'll find a few takers for the plant extras.
