So, after an evening last night of buying and planting with Jon, I have these tips to all of you reluctant gardeners:
-- Be a procrastinator. By this time of June, everything is 50% off, maybe more, and everything is picked over enough that your choices are somewhat limited, which makes your decisions much easier: Less to choose from!
-- Since everything is 50% off, you can stress variety and buy some plants that you think might not make it, and if they croak you'll only be out of 50% of your money.
-- Get to know my son Jon. He has become quite the amateur landscape designer. If you don't have a Jon in your life and you are unmotivated, then you might be staring at empty pots all summer.
-- Your yard will look so much better if you do it.
