Plants: Kens Nursery - Up to 70% off select plants

-3 Deal Score
3,706 Views
Kens Nursery has a seven pages of some of their "landscape plants" with up to 70% off. Shipping starts at $15 with mild increase with each additional plant.

Link [kensnursery.com]

The pictures that they show are the fully grown version. My first shipment from them was a surprise because they send you the "starter" version (ie not fully grown).

A really good deal is the 4 Sansevieria package. At Lowes/Walmart/Home Depot, one (established and grown) snake plant runs ~$15+. This is one of NASA's studied indoor air purifiers with some other interesting characteristics. It's also really easy to take care of indoors.

Same prices pretty much as all the "sale" sites, ie Brecks, American Meadows, etc unfortunately.

For Hosta maybe, but those sites don't have the exotic species that Kens has.

Home Depot is not charging $15 for that small of a snake plant. 1" wide and 5" deep pot. You can separate snake plants too so it's not a problem to buy a large one and split it up.

I think I got a 5" round pot for $7 on sale earlier this year. That was a special buy though.

I don't mean to thread dump - I didn't down-vote the post and I'm writing this as advice for the OP as much anything else - but I've been an avid indoor gardener for years, and have bought truly exotic plants by mail from many sources. (And frankly I can't imagine where in the US any but the most unusual forms of Sanseveria are really "exotic" or "unusual"?) These are really not good prices at all, and even worse when you add the shipping, which is far from low. I don't often recommend Ebay these days (for almost anything really), but for plants, it's actually a pretty good source if you avoid sellers like this and the ones dtpnu mentioned. If you stick with hobby-growers-turned-Ebay-sellers or established brick & mortar nurseries (real nurseries, I mean), you pay attention to the descriptions (and preferably only buy when there are photos of the "actual plant", or at least the general group of plants, being sold), make sure the seller's feedback is decent, and last but far from least, comparison-shop before you plunk down your $$, you can get some very nice, "really" exotic plants for decent prices. Retailers like this one are basically the low-end "puppy mills" of the plant world and are best avoided except in rare cases, like needing hundreds of bulbs for naturalizing large areas with fairly run-of-the-mill "bedding" flowers like daffodils and crocus, where the impact of the plantings depends less on individual flower quality than the overall "mass effect", and the size/quality of the starting bulbs is much less important than sheer price. And even then, only when the final prices as shipped really are significantly lower than alternate sources (and often they're not)...
