I’m sure this is local, but it wouldn’t hurt to check: We went to Lowes to buy plants and they had a couple of racks of clearance plants.
They had an entire rack of tomato plants for $.50 each.
I even bought one that has a nice, green tomato on it!! They look pretty healthy to me.
FYI: we are fixing up our house to sell and got about $100 worth of plants for $20 at the clearance section.
I didn’t see anything wrong with them, either!! They still have a 1-yr warranty too! Ashley in TN who has to get her hands dirty today!

WTG! I picked up two cherry trees this time last year for $25 each from the clearance section for my dh for father’s day.
They flowered beautifully this spring and I am starting to see cherries.

Hmm…I may have to visit Lowe’s this weekend…
You’re selling *another* house? I still need to clear all the bushes in my backyard and plant a garden.

Lowe’s does that here too, California.
I’m having a ball, their clearance racks in the nursery dept are sometimes up front but almost always toward the back.
I found that the clerks aren’t able to go below $1 when the person in charge of mark downs is not there but I have found several things for only a dime when she has done it.
I bought two large hanging baskets of strawberries for ten cents each.
They were pretty rough looking but I thought I could use the baskets, after I got them home I was thrilled to find under all the brown leaves were little green leaves still pushing up and struggling to make it.
I pulled them apart and planted them.
I’ve gotten grapes, berries, squash, gerbena daisies, foxglove, guara, african violets, another bright sunflower looking perenial and yesterday bought really nice azaleas for $1 a piece.
Also found two huge bags of Miracle Grow potting mix with a very slight hole in the bag, very little if any had
spilled and I got them for half price.
I also always walk through the succulent area, another favorite of mine.
I DO NOT ever break anything off any plant anywhere but if I see a little leaf on the floor I will take it home and they will grow from almost nothing.

No, this is the first house I personally have sold.
I’ve helped my dad sell his and asked for a lot of advice.
Plus I had to fix my broken house (that I’m selling) 2 years ago.
We went back to Lowe’s and the Mater Plants were all marked down to $.25 each.
Even though we had the bikes, I picked up 4 more!! I guess it’s a good thing we didn’t have a car, I probably would have more tomato plants than I ever need!
