Spring is finally 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. Perennials come back year after year, so they’re not only less work, but also they’re more cost-effective! 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.
