correct you are, i visited my local flea mkt this wkend and picked up 2 gorgeous minature hollyhocks..the guy raises them in his greenhouses, the ones i bought are gallon sz and the plants are 2 ft high for $10 each...lucky me!!!! what a deal
Most of the Flea Markets around here don't sell plants, and the Farmers Markets sell mostly veggies and herbs as far as plants go.
I have found another great resource for garden art and funky pots though - Goodwill! There's always a plethora of wooden objects available at our local Goodwill, some of which make excellent short term pots or garden art. Any good sized secondhand store may have interesting things to offer. Not nearly as good as Palmbob's Flea Market though - what a treasure trove for the garden.
Both great ideas. I'm in Orange County, CA and have access to lots of flea markets, including the Rose Bowl when I go to Pasadena. I've found them to be a great resourse also. But I did not think of the Goodwill, which is now on my list. Another resource I have found is construction salvage sites. They occasionally have interesting architectural items for pots or wall art. Thanks for the info.
