I know that I will be an easy mark this winter for any online retailer that sends me a "sale" flyer. During the summer I managed to "buy" $400 worth of plants that will arrive this fall for planting, pay when it ships options are dangerous . But every one a bargain and something I wanted, but... I had no idea I had spent that much... Sheepishly here. So how do you RESIST those beautiful colors and interesting foliage when the temps outside prevent you from BEING outside, hot or cold?
Also, does anyone else have a "journal" or book you keep of what you've bought, where it's located, how it does? I know this forum has an electronic journal, but I was thinking of stapling or taping plant tags to cardstock and placing in clear plastic sleeves in a 3-ring binder so I will be reminded next year, come buying time, what did, or did not, work in the garden?
