Many of you may already know this but for those who don’t, Lowe’s guarantees their plants and flowers for one year, providing you have the original receipt. One year! You have to bring in the dead plants along with your receipt and you will receive credit toward the purchase of additional plants.
My girlfriend (who is also a neighbor) does this all the time. But she has a green thumb so when something in her yard dies, it’s legit. With someone like me it could become an expensive proposition even for a big box store. I have not yet put the guarantee to the test myself but when I purchased new plants this past week I asked the cashier if, indeed, I could return them should they die (it just seems too good to be true) and sure enough he said “yes, for up to a year”! Just remember, you have to take in the dead plants and your receipt.
Here are a few examples of the pretty, and affordable, selection they carry. Hopefully I won’t be putting their guarantee to the test personally any time soon.
