    Have you wondered what happens to the plants nurseries don't sell? I was surprised to learn that they're destroyed. What a waste!

    Well, "Free Trees and Plants" rescues unsold plants. Then they're offered to you for free -- you only pay postage and handling.

    The company employs disabled workers to prepare the plants for shipping. So you're helping people who sometimes have difficulties finding employment.

    There's a wide selection available, so you might have a hard time choosing what you want. The selection varies depending on what's available, so be sure to check back.

    Also, keep in mind that the plants are dormant. This basically means that they're hibernating. So they will look a bit sparse until they're planted and become active again.

    (S&H is $6.95 but that is really cheap because I paid upwards of $20.00 for each bush I bought this year!)

    You can even buy a gift certificate and use it for Christmas or birthday presents!

    I just checked that out. It's neat. I am considering placing an order--but there's too much to choose from. I'll check back more maybe after the holidays.

    Thanks for sharing!

    That is neat! Thanks for sharing. I would love to order lots of plants, but we are trying to keep our yard simple because neither one of us can do much yard work. We have a neighbor who owns a landscape design company and his front yard is so beautiful.

    Thanks again. I can just see some of those trees and shrubs in my yard.

    I checked the perennial flowers, specifically the columbines. We plan on buying a number of them to start here in the spring. But at $6.95 for each two for shipping, that is actually quite pricey for perennial flowers! For shrubs and trees and stuff, it makes sense to buy from there, but for simple perennials, I think the six-packs or four inch pots from the nurseries, especially during sales, are much more economical.

    What a wet rag I am!

    Just checked the trees. I would strongly advise against buying any evergreen as a bare root plant. Deciduous trees, fine. But bare root evergreens rarely make it to the best of my knowledge...

    I am buying some shrubs. The price is good and I will receive them at just the right time to plant them in my area...

    I will just order one, to begin with, to see if it 'takes off'.
