How to save on flowers

Ok… I have such an intelligent way to save on flowers for your garden. We have a pool in our backyard and I have some big pots to decorate the backyard and that really adds up fast.

However, it gets so expensive to fill them up with annuals every Summer. I tried to do perennials one year and they didn’t come back, so that was a waste of money.

And you know I do not like to waste money. So, I was in search for new ideas to have a pretty yard but not spend a ton and blow my budget.

I have accepted the fact that I need to fill them with annuals every year but I’m not willing to spend HUNDREDS of dollar each year to do it.

  1. Wow! A true, Aha moment for me. I am SO going to do this! Thank you for the great idea as well as, saving me time AND $!

  2. I use same day with geraniums. I find buying single potted geraniums aren’t that big and not cheap either these days. So I buy a big potted type where there are usually 3-4 large, healthy geraniums. I split them as singles and pot each one in individual containers along with hanging ivy etc They look amazing. I calculated cost and it is actually not more expensive. Singles are going for $2.99 ( Canadian) whi,e large potted were less than $10 at Costco.
    I went to visit my friend in the country. Her property was crawling with periwinkle. Brought that home “ free” for great groundcover…very hardy, easy to care for those of us who may not have a green thumb or forgetful in watering…. and comes back every year.

  3. Great idea, thanks for sharing your idea. I pinch off trailing ground cover and transplant it to my pots for fillers.

  4. Love these ideas. I’m going to try them. I’ve got to purchase some more plants and this is what I’m going to try. Thanks so much.

  5. Love this idea!!

    I don’t know if you have an also near by, but they have beautiful hanging baskets for 6.99! I bought a few from there. 😊
