Thanks for the fabby article. I am fortunate that the garden centres here who 'banish' plants have open dumpsters. In my trusty rainsuit, gumboots and sunny yellow rubber gloves I am a seasoned dumpsterdiver engaged in honourable rescue missions. That's my story and I'm sticking to it ^_^
After reading this article the first time, I caught your disease. The garden department calls me the crazy plant lady. I've found Monday morning to be a great time; torn bags of soil are half price or less, and they are moving the strays to the sale racks.
