    I have always envied you for all the bargains, finds, cheaps you tell about.
    Our nurseries, shops, flower markets don't have this policy. They'd rather just see something die than lower the prices.
    ANYWAY... here's what I found for Valentine's....
    2 pots of Hydrangea, badly wilted, but they were discounted from around 10 USD to 0.5 USD. Each. I was, even if they die, I still have the plastic pots LOL
    This is what they looked like, but after I placed them on trays and gave them water... they perked up.
    Waiting a few days and then I'll post the AFTER pics.
    When it warms up a bit, one will go into the garden and one I will give my roommate to give to his mom.

    Those hydrangeas are going to be fine! That was a great buy and I'm glad you found them.

    That's a great deal. They should definitely be ok within a couple days and will look great in your garden I'm sure. :)

    I really hope you are able to rescue these. I hate seeing a plant die which could otherwise have brightened up a person's day. Keep us updated!

    Potted hydrangeas are thirsty little buggers. I think you'll save them :-D I'd love to have one in my yard but our climate just doesn't compliment a hydrangea :-? I'm jealous of anyone that can grow one :p
