Was in Home Depot, they had plants marked down over watered and root bound, I got pink & purple primroses and purple mums, have repotted them all and they are doing wonderful. Has anyone else rescued plants at all.
Shoot, I pull over and get "dead" plants out of people's trash piles all the time. QUOTE]
You are a woman after my own heart. I do that all the time. I've done it so much here in our park that from time to time I find plants on my door step. A few years ago I came home and found two boxes of irises! Last spring a lady stopped by and said she just knew her irises would be happy in my yard. Turns out when they moved she had asked her husband to dig up the irises she had tagged. She said he doesn't hear well so he dug them all up.
I recycle anything and everything I can. My neighbors know it so during the spring I find flower pots in my carport all the time. The ones I can't use I take to the conservation society.
Our Wal-Mart, HD, Lowe’s here won’t give away anything, they’d rather toss them. Usually at the very, very end of the season they will reduce the price of plants drastically but by then there isn’t much to pick from and if you don’t get there fast enough they are all gone.
