Free Plants – From The Funeral Home

free flowersHold on and gain your breath. Before you discount this idea from the beginning simply from the title, bear with me on this one and know that this does work. Most people have to step out of their comfort zone and even those of you who consider yourselves outgoing, might feel a bit odd about using a funeral home as free plant source (one of the reasons I left it out of 10 Ways To Get Plants For Free).

    Hi, This is Karen. This is the very first time I have ever even blogged or searched sites for financial support and positive feedback. My husband basically forced me to share on a blog as he calls me the queen of thrift. I am a friend who manages a nursing home. The local funeral homes beg her to take the plants that are left after funerals. She uses them at times but generally calls me and I get them. I dry them and make floral art, potpourri, wreaths etc… which I then give as gifts or sell I also use the dried seeds for planting flowers or filling in my
    wild flower field. One day when I was at walmart returning a palm tree plant that died I asked the clerk at the service desk if I could please have all the dead, dried pieces. I think she wanted to call the local looney bin. Yet I used those dried plant parts and designed a wreath for my home that gets so many compliments. Smell a flower today.
