How much do you spend on your garden per year?

busdriver12(7)May 6, 2008

Well lets see I spend $60 on a wooden wagon, $7 on 7 packs of perennial seeds at Dollar Tree, and yesterday I spend $27 at a greenhouse, $65 for mulch, $10 on 2 bags of potting soil, That's all I remember so far.

I am afraid to even think about it! OK, so far this week it's been a Hosta (Guacamole) for 9.99, 2 bags of Miracle grow potting soil for about 13.00, a pot of Purple Fountain Grass for 3.99, 2 miniature roses for 3.99 each, a little Japanese Maple for 15.00, a new Heuchera for 5.99, a Water Lily for my pond at 6.99, a few more fish and fish food about 12.00, and a bag of bloodmeal for 5.99.

I need to stay away from the garden centers!

Yes...Nice Wagon!

I've never really kept track of it, but do think it might be interesting to see just how much (or how little) I spend on my healthy obsession I call hobby gardening.

This season (so far), it has been one small plant coop (cost-can't remember)
4 bales potting mix-$28 total
30 tomato plants-$5
Pepper plants-$4
2 shrubs...a variegated boxwood, and a new lilac (to add to my collection)...about $12 total

unknown amount on postage seeds trades
unknown amount on postage on plant trades...but so worth it for for what I receive in exchange. Yesterday I spent $12 on plant trade postage. I should figure up just what all I receive in return for that small investment. When trading, the digging, labeling, and packing of the boxes is the biggie...moreso than the actual cost, as it involves so much time to do it with great care and attention to packing them the best possible way.
