Does your garden tend to make it to mid-season and then fall flat? You may be setting yourself up for failure by buying the wrong plants! Here are a few tips to help you make sure you get full value for your garden budget:

  • Don’t buy plants that are dried out, spindly, or yellowing.
  • Choose plants that have not yet begun to bloom.
  • Inspect for signs of insect or disease damage.
  • Check the tags to be sure you choose plants appropriate for the sun and shade conditions and soil pH in your yard.
