Step 1: Shop Shop end of season sales at your local garden store. If you are lucky, you can find perennials big enough to divide. Step 2: Purchase by flat Purchasing plants by the flat can sometimes save you 20 percent. Share the cost with a friend if you don't need all the plants. Step 3: Purchase smaller size Purchase smaller perennials, evergreens, and flowering shrubs. Eventually they will grow to full size. Step 4: Purchase seeds Grow plants and vegetables from seeds. Lettuce, tomatoes, peppers, and string beans are easy plants to grow. Tip Choose plants that grow vertically such as beans, tomatoes, and cucumbers if space is limited. Step 5: Go to special events Go to garden clubs, botanical gardens, and special fund-raising events to save money and find unusual specimens. Step 6: Divide perennials Double or triple your plant supply by dividing. Good perennials to divide include hostas, coral-bells, daylilies, and geraniums. Did You Know? Perennials should be divided in the fall or early summer to avoid stress on the plant.
