Ditto for me on #10 - that is too funny. This season, I promised not to buy new plants ... now I have to sneak them into the garden. My hubby thinks I'm obsessed - he's right.

I'm with you, I have been BANNED from ANYWHERE that seels anything to do with gardening. I'm not allowed to go without "adult supervision!!!

What is it about plants! I can be pretty frugal or just plain cheap about somethings. For some reason though plants are different. I bought a Betula Pendula'Trosts Dwarf' yesterday. I was doing so well until the nursery that was carrying them had one left. I panicked and just had to have it. There is no more room in the garden but I thought it would look lovely in a container. Just what I need, another container to keep watered this summer!

My other half thinks I have an incredible green thumb since these plants just seem to appear from nowhere. All evidence of pre-started plants such as receipts from Walmart,Canadian Tire of Art Knapp nursuries and empty pots will not be spotted in or around the house.

So, I'm not the only one that has a plant obsession. I've also been told not to get any more plants, but so many new and different plants keep showing up that I have to get them. Luckily I have a half acre sneak them in.
