How can I garden on a budget?

First, start with your soil. It’s always a good idea to add some compost when planting.

And, when you water, give the plants a good soaking rather than a light watering. Follow these tips and your plants will grow healthy roots. You can save money by growing annuls and vegetables from seed. When shopping for shrubs, viburnum, hypericum, ninebark, hibiscus, butterfly bush, crapemyrtle, barberry, dogwood and hydrangeas are all easy to grow plants in your area. Look for the symbols on the First Editions plant tags to help with selecting plants for sun or shade. Getting the right plant in the right place is important too.
