By spending a little extra time looking, I was able to buy packs with as many as 9 plants in them rather than the 4 which are usually in the ones which come from the big box garden centers who get them from huge greenhouse operations. I saved money; I kept the profit to the merchant in our community; and I got very healthy plants that hadn't gone through several days of shipping and stocking.

I also buy the drooping plants that the stores forgot to water or early frost has touched. They look sad, but after a few weeks revive, fill out, and seem stronger for everything they've been through. Best of all, they often sell for fifty cents or less per pack.
