Spring is here and many stores are stocking up on beautiful plants and flowers! Even though gardening can be an expensive hobby, there are many ways you can create a budget-friendly garden this season. One easy way is to plant perennials rather than annuals.

You can also start your plants from seeds; however, if you’re like me and you want that spring color right away, you’ll want to check out the options below.
