While is really tempting to grab those blooming flowers and other plants displayed at your grocery store or other major retailer, the better bet is to head to your local nursery. The benefits you will reap include healthier plants and the one-on-one guidance on how to take care of your new plants and flowers.
The flowers and plants that are sold at major retailers and those national garden centers often are shipped from hundreds, if not thousands, of miles away. The stress that the plants go through takes their toll, and that doesn’t even count what happens to them when inattentive employees neglect to take proper care of them. While you may think you are looking at a robust plant, it may not be as hardy as you think, and just that one final transplant into your landscaping or garden could be too much for it.
The other benefit of shopping at a local nursery for your flowers and plants is the support you receive. A local nursery is owned by and staffed by people who know everything there is to know about gardening. A large garden center’s employees are not nearly as passionate about or as knowledgeable about the flowers and plants being sold. You’ll likely get a blank stare if you ask questions about which fertilizer is best for it or the right way to plant it. A local nursery will also have all the perfect landscaping and garden maintenance supplies you need, all chosen because they are ones they recommend, rather than being chosen for their profit margin, as is the case with larger retailers.
