Gardening Laidback Gardener Tip of the Day

For the Best Plants, Shop Thursday or Friday

When you shop just as plants are being put on display, you’ll have the best choice.

Nurseries and garden centers like to look their best on weekends and therefore generally have new plant shipments delivered on Thursdays and Fridays. So if you want to have the first pick of plants or grab yours while they’re fresh from the supplier, before they’ll have had time to suffer from any inattention, Thursdays and Fridays – or very early Saturday morning – are the best days to go plant shopping!
