End-of-Season Plant Sales

September 9, 2008 heavenlygardens

This is the second week of September and local nurseries throughout the country are getting ready for their end-of-season plant sales, if they haven’t already begun discounting. Even places like Lowe’s and Home Depot significantly mark down their plants to move them out and make room for their (sigh) Christmas displays. I won’t go into how utterly ridiculous it is to start selling 4 months early.

So, take a look around your garden and make note of where you’d like to add a plant or two or three. Then grab the newspaper and find out which nurseries are ready to give you a great deal this week because autumn is the perfect time to plant. More about that in my next post on Wednesday.

Some nurseries discount their plants by as much as 50 percent this time of year. So check every nursery in your town to get the best deals.

For those gardeners who prefer armchair shopping, grab those seed and garden product catalogs that arrived last month. Some of them may have great end-of-season discounts and sales, too. Some of my favorite gardening catalogs include Burpee, Park Seeds, and Henry Field’s. One of my favorite plant catalogs, because it contains some of the most exoitc plants, I’ve ever seen is K. Van Bourgondien & Sons, Inc..

I just checked the web sites of these 4 companies and Park Seeds is offering Web Specials and a $1.00 seed sale. Henry Fields has an ‘On Sale Today’ link at the top of the home page and Burpee is currently offering a variety of discounts. K. Van Bourgondien has a clearance section on its web site.

Do you have some favorite plant, seed, or gardening catalogs that you’d like to share with us?

To Your Gardening Abundance!
