Choosing plants for your garden

My mom and I had a day of what we call nursery hopping last week. It was really my first time out shopping for plants, although that wasn’t the impetus for the trip to Toledo and back.

I wanted a bent willow chair and one of my Facebook readers told me a certain garden center there had a lot of them. They did and I purchased one.

Well, you can’t go to a garden center and not look at the plants. And few die-hard gardeners have enough will power to walk out of such a place without at least one or ten of them. I may or may not have been on the high end of the plant count.
