Sharing Plants and Cuttings

All of these plants (except 3) were donated to me by a fellow Thrifty Fun member. Last week I posted a question about inexpensive plants, and she contacted me and offered to share hers. All of these were taken directly from her grounds. They are doing great and are a fabulous starting point for me!


Thank you so much Myrna!

They look happy in their new home. Now when they get big enough you can pass on the favor.

I just love how TF people help each other.

Good luck. GG Vi

Hello! The plant look great but I actually had a question about the awning you have on your front porch. My house is set longways and looks like yours is as well. I have been dying to get some kind of awning or to build a porch of some kind just to shelter my front door & windows from the rain. What is it that you have there overhead. It looks almost like a carport? If thats what that is, thats pretty clever! Thanks! :o)

When I was growing up, the women in my family and neighbors would exchange cuttings of plants - which is such a nice idea. Some plants are so easy to germinate from cuttings or slips - like spider plants. A gardener around here pulled a bunch of spider plants and I rescued from the trash to share with friends!

Sharing Plants and Cuttings

Pam, I am so glad that you rescued those plants from the trash. Some people just haven't learned yet about being thrifty and frugal and are still living with the "throw away" attitude. Whenever I dig up all the little plant offspring and I can't find anywhere else to use them in my garden, I place them at the road side with a sign that says free plants and everyone in the neighborhood stops to get some. There is always someone that could use extra garden plants, and it only takes a little effort to pass them onto someone else. (11/01/2006)
