Water a Flower Day: Frugal Tips and Deals

Water a Flower Day Deals and Tips

National Water A Flower Day is approaching on Monday May 30, and what better way to celebrate than with an array of beautiful flowers in your garden?

Starting a new garden can be difficult and expensive, so we’ve put together a list of ways to get started on your dream backyard that is both easy and affordable.

  1. Seed Swaps: Rather than buying a bunch of brand new seeds, do a seed swap with your neighbors! Seed swapping is not only a good way to save money, but it allows you to learn about different flowers you may not be familiar with or able to find anywhere else.
  2. Edging: Instead of spending money on bricks and fences to edge your garden, use rocks of different sizes and colors that are already in your backyard.
  3. DIY Fertilizer: Fertilizing your plants increase their growth while also conditioning the soil and repelling pests.  Save money on plant fertilizer by using items you already have such as crushed egg shells, coffee grounds, and vinegar.
  4. Self-Watering: Avoid spending money on new seeds by using a self-watering method to extend the life of your flowers. You can create a self-watering system for your plants by simply filling an empty beer or wine bottle with water, and planting the bottle upside down a few inches into the soil. This method ensures that your plants are watered from the roots while receiving a consistent amount of moisture.
  5. Rain Barrels: Save money on your water bill each week by constructing barrels to collect rain in your backyard.

Now that you have an idea of how to create a garden without spending a fortune, here are some deals to help you get started:
