I love this thread - keep watching it for great deals - like I need more great deals, LOL. Joyce, how are you doing? I planted some EE bulbs - do they take a while to come up? Only two more MG classes to go - woohooooo! I'm loving it! Cynthia
I know a little ditty about buying mulch and bagged stuff from the box stores this time of year. People will puch holes in the bags to get a sample then pick up another bag that is not leaking. There are some bags also that are just plain damaged. About 2 years ago we walked into Lowes and they had piled up all these broken bags. So we ask what they wanted for them and we got a whole ranger full of that stuff for about $25. So watch when your there for something like that.
I have been buying a lot of the bagged mushroom compost this year. It beats the top soil they have hands down and is worth $2 a bag. Have not seen it on sale though
Plant Bargain Time
I checked out Sadalia's Lowes - a 10 cent per container rack for a mongo pine, mostly annuals but a 12 pack of marigolds is my kind of a deal. Some are ragged but I'll give them a chance to bloom.
Most of Manard's plants are 50% off.
My favorite thread, lol! Happgarden, you should see the elephant ears I have planted - coming up all over the place, woohoooo! Even have some planted at my garden in Iowa - can't wait to see how big they get! Cynthia
I think Lowes will sell dead stuff for dirt cheap, but its dead! lol
They can be pretty shady I think..lol
I don't know if they'd do that dead stuff yet tho. They may have legitimately cheap stuff for sell now! : )
That Winter Lowes was selling the dead stuff for a quarter. I couldn't believe it, so I took my camera up there, it looked like RoseMarie (mostly) they let just die in the cold, see the photo below..lol.
The Home Depot did have potted trees half off (except Japanese Maple 'Bloodgood', and all bulbs were half price I think $3.99, 3 something anyway, I was just there today. I didn't catch the dates.
Hi all, its prolly pretty typical of box stores this time of year, but I know The Home Depot has potted plants 1/3rd off the sticker price. My friend's Sister came back with about 20 potted plants yesterday! I asked her, "you mean 1/3 off the price on the plant?"
She said yes. She had 9 Hostas, and it was quite an assortment. I noticed a 'Krossa Regal' Hosta was one of them, I remember thinking that was pretty good for a box store.
I saw her big Butterfly Bush, a Ligustrum,and several big Coral Bells (Heuchera, purple and green) is 3 more I remember seeing.
This was the Independence, MO. store, altho I'm guessing they all are the same.
Sorry, she didn't know any dates.
Shortleaf--- Krossa Regal is a commong hosta and most of the time is worth about 4 bucks. Hosta prices are goverend mostly by their rareity more than anything. I remember a few years ago a woman in the hosta forum paying $400 for a single eye of a rare hosta. Its a lot of hog wash as far as I am concerned.
The Coral Bells your sister had was Purple Palace. Those do well in this area, but is not nuts about full sun. They are about one of the most common of the Heuchera(coral bells). If she did not buy that one( I know they had) called Southern Comfort she missed it. That is one of the new breed that was developed in France a few years ago. It is from the Villosa strain of Heuchera and is highly heat and sun resistant. There are not to many available in that are bred from this strain yet. I think we have 4 or 5 types. Southern comfort, Lemon lime. Carmel,Moucha, and Beaujolluis. Trouble with a lot of heuchera is that they were developed from plants and crossed with plants that grow high in the mountain and other places not favorable to our climate. They may look lovely for a year or so then all of a sudden you have a hot humid day and they are dead within a hour. It is hard to tell what ones will do mwell arounfd here you just have to invest in one and see what happens. Just google heuchera villosa on your computer and you will get plenty to read about.
Hi Oz, the Heuchera she got is called 'Plum pudding'. She only got 1 purple Heuchera, the other 2 are green. I'm fairly sure it's getting planted in a real shady spot, it might get a little dappled sun, not much.
Wow, $400 for an eye of Hosta! The most I've ever paid for a single plant is $35, I'm glad I did because 6+ years later it is stunning, I wouldn't take $200 for it now! It is a big Eastern White Pine 'Nana', in the biggest decorative cheap plastic pot that Lowes sells! lol
We need a new thread titled, "Whats your most expensive, best plant (or plants) that you have?!" lol
Walmart in Blue Springs has all of their plants on sale except for houseplants. Majority of them are only a dollar and some are 3 and 5 dollars. They are in gallon or bigger pots. Hanging baskets and combos are a bit more and some of the quart or smaller pots are $.50. I don't know if all of the big Walmarts are doing big sales or not but I got some great plants at great prices.
Pentsemon- Prarie Dusk
Monarda- Pink Supreme A neon pink color. They have a darker pink one too that I almost grabbed.
Coreoptsis- Red Shift
I need another climbing rose. I might go to Ace on Monday or Home Depot and see what they have. Gotta be heavily scented and been easily seen from road. LOL. And it's not my fault that I'm going. A former coworker of mine said my Golden Showers wasn't a good choice for me and to get a different one. Happy too!! LOL!!
Hi lineace Marilyn! The last time I saw you was at Pepper's Grandma's house at the Fall RU in 08'! Lowes DOES have some good deals at times, then other times its like they're unconscious. For ex., like the time I bought the waterpond liner, I wouldn't have been able to afford the right price, but they said since it was on the shelf incorrectly priced that it was mine if I wanted it. I told the girl at the counter, "thank gosh for sleeping workers", she got a laugh out of that! Wow, 5 BB Bushes for $5, that is a terrific buy. If I went to Sedalia tho, I'd be outta gas and outta money! : )

Lowes is 75% off right now on all trees and shrubs, it's probably all Lowes. I went to one in East Independence, MO. and 2 plants I got were $2.44 ea. after tax, normally $8 something. She said today and for 13 more days, then it's time for Christmas trees she said, they have to make room. This customer there was telling me that The Home Depot sends stuff back to the vendors whereas Lowes doesn't yet. He was carrying some plants, I thought he was an employee so I asked him a question, he was real nice though, haha, he was a customer! She said they didn't put signs out that say 75% off because they didn't want people to wait until Nov. to buy plants but I'm afraid that's what I'll be doing now! The selection is probably below half of what it is in Aug. or Sept. so wait until Nov. at your own risk!
Santarosagardens.com is having their 2.99 plant summer sale. Shipping is only 7.99. Plants come as good as my local greenhouses in 4 inch pots and great packaging. Use code hort512e if you want to get an extra 20% off too!
Yay! I've been looking for a sale thread since I've been on here!! In the St. Louis area, Orlando's Produce in St. Peters has HUGE hibiscus bushes and trees, mandevillas, gardenias, hanging baskets, etc on sale for $5 - 10 each. I got a braided trunk gardenia tree for $5 on Saturday. They even had a huge table of annuals that were free since they were going to throw them away that night.
I am always on the look out for good deals, I'll be back to update more as I find them. :)
