A quick stop at our local Amish Store and Nursery yielded me a lovely flat of bedding plants for just $4.
I’ve found that by waiting till June 1st, all of their bedding plants are marked way down. It’s a great way to get some beautiful, large plants for a great deal.
In this flat I was able to purchase: 18 dianthus plants, 6 petunia, 3 wave petunia, 6 pansy, 6 carpet of snow, and 6 small pretty blue flowers But I can’t remember their name!)
That’s 46 plants for just $4.
I was able to fill 6 planters and even used a few to fill in around my perennials in a flower bed.
The best part is, in another week or so I’ll stop back in. If they have any left, they just give them away.
Patience can be a very Thrifty Virtue!
