Bargain Spree


It was nice to get plants for under $3 today. I also got some seeds for things I have never grown before.

The seeds are

Dwarf teddy bear sunflower
Chinese Lantern
Columbine Dragonfly Hybrid Mix

Plants are:

Thanks every one. I also got an oleander (Fire red) for my mom yesterday. It was in a 8" pot and the price said $14.99 (which for my mom, I thought was worth it so I didn't mind paying that price). When I got to the counter to pay for it, I only paid $2.75 for it. Gave it to mom and she loves it. So I really scored on this one. :~)

Be careful with Chineses Lantern unless you have an area you don't mind it going nuts in. It was very "happy" at my last house and it took me 2 full years and a lot of digging to get rid of it. It was in my front bed and it completely took over.

Hmmm, Good to know Disney. I will make sure to put them in the back where if it does take over, then it will be ok.

Thanks
