Gardening with a credit card
Independent lawn and garden centers are getting VERY Internet savvy.
Most of the larger centers have developed websites that include garden advice and a schedule of events.
But some are also listing the plants, shrubs, trees and other items that are on sale, or coupons for discounts.
It is a brave move because these centers are up against the Big Box stores, which use volume to undercut everybody else's prices.
But the advantage of visiting a dedicated garden center is that the employees there are smart about gardening and can answer your questions. That's key when you are making this kind of an investment.
