Lowes fruit trees 75% off
« on: September 13, 2012, 08:19:17 AM »
Passed by my local  Lowes last night and saw 92 fruit trees, different varieties of apples, pears and  plums mostly, for 75% off which made them $5 per tree.   Apparently they got a new load of trees and these had to go.  They were still in good shape and about 5 or 6 feet tall.  Bought  them all for $495 and will plant them at the "farm" in the next few weeks. This will supplement my first orchard of 60 trees I planted 4 years ago.  I am posting this to alert you to the fact that you can stumble across good deals sometimes.

Nice score!

There's no one set date for clearance stuff at Lowe's and Home Depot stores, I asked. I picked up 75% off clearance trees and plants all summer. Whenever I get a chance I stop by. I picked up fruit trees, blueberries, strawberries, loganberries, raspberries, veggies and herbs and good deals on lumber to build my new beds (just bought my place and starting over)

I often find good deals on clearance stuff there such as cull lumber. Check the stores around you to find out when they do their inventories, all their clearance gets marked down to nothing so they don't have to try to inventory it.

Kinda curious.  How many of these trees survived and how are they doing after several years.  Do you have much to harvest at this point?
