I've been in several times this week. I guess they just ordered to much stuff. The clearance shelves on the patio area are continually being refilled. I bought some Johnny Jump Ups, Snapdragons, I think it's lantana, a Gerber Daisy. All for 5.00. Going back today to check on the African Violets. They have some that have looked terrible for a week at least but have not marked them down yet.

i borrowed my mom's car yesterday and ventured out to our lowe's. they are just starting to fill in the outdoor stuff. as nice to wander around. but, i am always on the lookout for houseplants. and i got 2 bromeliads reduced to 3.00 each. i know they are on their way out because they have flowers, but they also produce babies before they die and after the flowers so... i'm happy. wish i could get there more often. but then again maybe it's a good thing i can't lol.

Great find. I went yesterday but left with just a 6 pack of purple johnny jump ups. I did find some nice vessels for my new houseplants.Glad you found your money tree.

i have to say that lowe's is falling dow on the houseplant job. some of the african violets look so bad now that even at 1.00 they may be overpriced and they still have not marked them down. going to check back tonight.

that is the worst Vicci! i don't like seeing dying plants just sitting there. i like to rescue. it's the same way here at the local walmart. they just let them die, they don't bother marking them down so that maybe someone will come along and buy them. sad really.
