Many of us are not aware that we are already spending huge amount of money for our beautiful gardens. However, if we are sum up our expenses related to our garden we might be shocked of how much we have spent already. Therefore, to help you get started in saving money from your garden, a few tips are listed below.
Buying in small quantities is a great way to start. Buying like half an ounce of seeds for your tomato plant is obviously not ideal.
The variety of plant seeds offered by a mail-order catalog can be great however, if you will buy more from them, there might be a possibility that you will be paying too much for shipping. Settling on a few form mail-order sources is a good move.
For your heavy stuff like organic fertilizer, bone meals, green sands and so on, it is advisable for you to have it bought from your local retail sources. These items can be cheap to buy but are costly when shipped.
Sourcing out alternative sources for your garden materials is a great way of saving money. Yes, you can have your good mulch from a retail store near you but this is priced according. If you were to buy a bale of straw or mulch from a farm store, this can only be priced as livestock bedding.
Keeping on the lookout for a free garden material is another effective trick to save money from gardening. Many of the utility company and sanitation departments are giving away mulch and comports made from leaves and organic wastes.
Buying off-season is very helpful if you want to save a lot from your garden plants. There might be a tendency for you to find a shrub at $14.50 if you buy it in October, which is much cheaper than buying it in May at $25.
