Love them or hate them, gift cards are the perfect gift for shopping and buying what you want. You can purchase exactly what you need and know that you won’t have to return the item(s). I was among the few that ventured into a nearby garden store and the only one in the outside garden area. I had to question why I was buying plants on the coldest day of the year as I walked the plants deciding which would be good for hanging planters. I picked up a hibiscus plant that will have bright red flowers, alyssum, lantana camara, commonly known as Landmark Gold in gold and purple. These plants will attract butterflies and colorful moths in the springtime. I was hoping to find ivy geranium to use as a trailing plant down the outside of the pot, but couldn’t find any. That just means a trip back for all the plants I didn’t get.
Have you started thinking about what will be in your garden this spring?
