There are a ton of different kinds of plants. Some grow in pots and some grow in the ground. There are tons of places that you can purchase plants. There are only specific places that are good to go when you are first starting out with your houseplants and some places that are great for a bargain. Let’s take a look at some of the best places to purchase houseplants.
If you are starting out and have never bought a houseplant before, go to a nursery. You might pay a little more at first, but you will get to have someone help you who really knows about gardening. You can ask them all sorts of questions like how much should I water the plant? Where is the best place for me to put the plant? How much sunlight does the plant need? Is this plant poisonous? How large does this plant get? Is this plant tough? A lot of time larger stores that sell everything from groceries to bikes won’t really know a lot about plants. They will just know the basics. When you start out, you need to know exactly what you are getting into. You need to know what to expect and what is really a good place to start with a plant.
There are great times for using large supercenter garden centers. When you have had houseplants for a long time and you know what plants you work well with, which ones are poisonous and that you need to stay away from, then it is a great time to go there. They offer lower prices, generally, and you can get a new plant while you wait for your prescription to be filled.
Other stores, like Home Depot and Lowes are great for buying things like soil, pots, and fertilizer. Many plant stores will charge a huge amount for pots. You can buy them cheaper at a supercenter or at a home improvement store. You will have to make sure and buy the smaller pots for your indoor plants, but it is a great place to find all different sizes, even huge pots if you want them.
Nurseries are still the best place to buy plants. The people there are so smart when it comes to plants and they usually have a huge selection. You can find almost anything you are looking for. They also do have sales and so if you are looking for a lower price, just buy a plant on sale or when it is going out for the season.
There are many great places to find houseplants. Nurseries are great for the variety and service, while supercenters and home improvement stores are great for their convenience and prices. When you choose a plant, remember to think about sunlight, watering, if it is poisonous or not (it could really harm your children and make them end up in the emergency room), and if you really like it or not.
