Okay, it's a little late getting things going this year (thanks to Calgary's normal late season plus 2 solid weeks of rain... now stopped for a while) and I only started really dealing with annuals today. The pickings were 'no chance' at Costco as they only had a few draggly things left, HD not much better. So I figure I'll go to the garden centre as they probably have more healthy stock than anyone this time of year.
What should I buy that can take off fast and furious to make up for lost time?
BTW I was feeling a little pissy today and decided the 3 dead bushes, 1 dead clematis, and several bulb packages that didn't come up were going back to the stores. So I yanked what I could up and grabbed the empty bulb packs and headed off. I'm so pleased. Costco didn't even blink and gave me all my money back and HD just told me to go pick out some replacements. AT HD I wasn't about to take the same kind again and all they had were the large containers which cost more but I figured I'd pay the difference and the guy just gave me a straight exchange.
So now I have faith restored that I can get the garden going without more big investment (actually 75% of what I planted last year is okay but the lack of the other things making it was making me cringe). So, what should I go buy to fill the spots?
BTW Costco had their trees marked down to $7.99 today. They were pretty little, but if they grow... good deal.
