The best time to start planting is during spring and fall.
So, it is also a good time to buy some plants for your garden.
A visit to a nearby nursery can be fruitful if you have the right knowledge.
Otherwise, you will end up with a garden filled with dying plants.
Here are 10 buying tips for new plants from Houzz to make your garden more captivating.
- Plan Before Buying (exposure, space & soil)
- Avoid Impulse Buys
- Read the Label
- Know the Signs of Unhealthy Plants
