Those who know me quickly learn that I love a bargain. I get so excited when I find something on sale. It gets even better when I have a coupon for the sale item. Finding a good bargain is in my DNA. I come from a long line of women who love to find great deals.
Well for me, this also extends to the landscape. Now, it may seem a contradiction when I state to my clients that they can save a lot of money by using large plants. We all know that large plants cost a lot of money at the nursery.
I quickly go on to explain to them that I DO NOT recommend buying large-sized plants at the nursery. In fact, I love finding shrubs in the 1-gallon size at the nursery. They are much cheaper, which pleases the bargain hunter in me. What I DO recommend is buying plants in small containers that will grow large fairly quickly.
For example, this 1-gallon Green Cloud Texas Sage cost about $5 dollars at the nursery.
