Reviving Cheap Plants
Don't you just love buying cheap plants on offer and reviving them. I have just bought some Astilbes from Home Bargains for 25p that looked dead. On getting them home I chopped off all the dead leaves and underneath is a healthy looking plant. I look forward to see them grow next year. The grocers just down the road were selling the same plant £4.99, they looked lovely but I have the satisfaction that mine will look like that(fingers crossed) next year for a fraction of the price.
I did similar with some geraniums/a choisia and some hebes. I might end up with a random garden but it makes me happy inside.
