Contrary to popular habit, fall is the time to plant, so now's your chance to save $$ if you need trees/shrubs or a maybe a few polar pansies.
I recommend going first to Home Depot, so you can get 50% off, then check Lowe's for anything else you need.
Be sure to check Mayo's Garden Center or other similar stores for savings.
P.S. Don't bother looking for Dogwood trees at Lowes/Home Depots at Knoxville Center or Clinton Highway... we bought the last one!
