In addition, they are short-term and will require you to replace more often. Since your pocket is not as heavy, you can carefully select the best lasting plants and flowers that will not only improve the look of your garden, but also last longer. For year round beauty, perennial plants and flowers are the best, so make sure to purchase more of them, as this is the one of the best ways of avoiding a costly budget.

     

    Buy during off-season

     

    Plants and flowers tend to have higher prices when the season begins. Therefore, it is strongly advisable not to buy your plants and flowers during this time of the year. The best season to plan for your purchase is the fall. This is the time you can plant nurseries or get flowers and plants at discounted prices across the market.

    However, you should be careful when buying your plants at this time, as most plants may not survive the harsh weather. Check the roots of the plants at the base of the container and verify that the soil is in good shape. Plants bought when the weather is harsh may look awkward and unhealthy, but the good news is the spring will make them look attractive and better. You will have beautiful and healthy flowers at a fraction of a cost that your neighbours will spend during when the season is up.

     

    Plan your Garden

    Most homeowners make changes to their gardens during the summer, so look around and identify the best plants and flowers that your neighbours may want to do away with as they introduce new flowers.  Replacing flowers may not mean that they cannot be replanted elsewhere, especially if they are perennials.

    If you know of a friend or a neighbour who is considering replacing his or her garden flowers, ask for permission to pick the best seedlings to be transferred to your already prepared garden. You should care for these plants before the springs sets in to ensure they don’t die.
