Getting Potted in the Desert

Would you rescue or throw this plant?
  • Would you rescue or throw this plant?

Are you a Saver or Thrower? – Whether you are a seasoned gardener or just getting started, it is important to know (or discover) if you are someone who will rescue every sick plant and each baby that is born from your labors regardless of how they look. Or, if you will discard weaker plants and start with something fresh. No matter the price of many plants, people fall into one of these categories. I quickly discard any plants that cost less than $50. A landscape plant that is costly will be tended to as long as possible. Potted plants generally will run their course in my garden and then go to the compost heap. Which gardener are you?
