I rescued this plant from someone who was going to "trash it" after its first blooming. The plant was almost dead when I got it last year. I'm always trying to save things that other people have given up on or abandoned.

After a summer of good care, this is the reward I got this fall. The best garden tip I have for anyone is always hope for the best outcome when planting or trying to save a sad-looking plant or flower.

Often at Lowe's and Walmart, where their garden center is located, there are flowers/plants that have gotten a little worn to where they are dry, brown, and brittle. Often all these little lovelies need is water and nutrients. I often check for clearance plants and flowers.Saving Marked Down Plants


This trip I found some potato vines that needed a home! The employee as Lowe's was going to throw them away.

I asked for and got a tray of them for 80 cents. They were 10 cents each. Because I keep Sta-Green vegetable/flower soil on hand (Lowe's brand), I knew I could bring them more life! The last picture shows how my potato vine has doubled in size after 3 weeks.

I am always on the market for more beautiful plants and flowers. At my local Lowe's home improvement store, they have racks of reduced plants and flowers for only $1, $3, $5!

Photo Description
I purchased (2) sad 2 gallon hybrid tea shrub roses from Lowes for 50% off - originally $24.98 now $12.49 each.

In just 2 weeks, the sad roses bloomed beautifully! All I had to do was give the roses some love. I cleaned the dead leaves off, trimmed some branches and watered every 2-3 days. Unfortunately, I forgotten to take a before picture condition I bought the roses, but look at the roses now - in the end I was able to purchase two rose shrubs for the price of one!
