Big box stores like Lowe’s and Home Depot discount distressed greenery quickly. Often you can pick up a three-gallon shrub for $5.00. Don’t be afraid to ask them to mark it down more, the worst thing that will happen is they will say no. Take the tree, plant or shrub home and get it in the ground right away. Feed it and watch it bloom back to life. Save money and worry, these stores guarantee their live items for one year. Keep your receipt that way if your greenery doesn’t survive you can dig it up and return it for a full refund.
