If you're wanting to landscape your property, but not wanting to spend a lot of money doing so, alert your family, friends, fellow church members, co-workers, etc., if they're going to be having any spares of plants, flower bulbs, flower or plant seeds, graftings from trees, etc. to let you know, that you'll be happy to take them off your hands. You might even get a gift card from one of your local nurseries for a birthday, house warming gift, Christmas gift, etc.

A nice thing about gardening is getting plant clippings from friends and relatives. Especially plants that bloom year after year and even long after some family members are no longer living, you'll still have something to remember them by.

This is a wonderful idea. When I got married in 1954 nobody bought plants or flowers. All my neighbors swapped houseplant cuttings and the like. We moved to another town and were living in a town house apartment. Some of the neighbors were living there till they got a down payment on a house.

I allowed the little "helicopters" from maple trees to grow and when folk moved to their new houses they took a little tree for their yard. I also, as a going away gift, cleaned their apartments so they could get their damage deposits back.
