Hi -

I want to take a plant for my hostess on a Memorial Day cookout.

They have an outdoor pool and some hanging baskets...I know she basically waters everything with a garden hose and there is pretty good sun in parts of the yard. She's in Houston so it's hot and humid out most of the time.

Any suggestions for a pretty plant under $10? I probably will do a hanging basket. Blooms would be nice...

you are not going to find anything decent either hanging or otherwise for under $10.00 . if she is a gardener try gloves, a bag of fertilizer, a pruner or something like that. Otherwise pony up $15 to get a nice patio planter full of annuals.

That would be a great gift, but gonna be hard to do under $10.00.

sometimes book stores have those big coffee table books really marked down. I recently got a container garden book for $9. Maybe something like that would be appropriate.

I purchased herbs from my Farmer's Market for about $2-3 a pop. You could get a small pot and some mint or thyme or oregano to give as a hostess gift.

What a nice idea!
