Why pay big bucks for beautiful plants?
We have done a lot of updates around the house and I am finally ready for plants. The problem is, that I don’t appear to be very good at growing plants so therefore I am not wanting to spend a lot of money getting started. I also didn’t want something that would harm the dogs or cats and I am not an expert on what is what.
I am a member of a freecycle group on Facebook and while I am normally the one trying to fulfill people’s wish lists I wondered what would happen if I posted an inquiry asking if anyone had any plants they didn’t want or slips off plants. I explained I was not good at growing plants and it had to be cat and dog safe.
Within hours I received several responses and others joined in offering various slips of plants, others wanting plants, others changing slips of plants for ones they didn’t have and so on. I am getting the chance to get a dozen various plants and so are others at no cost to anyone. It is a fantastic way to get plants for free or a variety of new types.
Place an ad in your local freecycle or even buy and sell sites and get some new plants for your home!
