Marianne and I often take a look at the rescue shelf at local home improvement stores and nurseries in search of a good deal. Rescues are plants that, for various reasons, have such a poor appearance that they are just one step removed from being tossed out by the store. Because the merchants are often willing to take what they can get at this point, you can really rack up some savings. Last night, for example, we bought a Lantana plant that normally sells for $10 at Lowe's for a clearance price of only $1. With a little some time and effort, it will make a great addition to the front yard for hardly any money at all.
