Garage Sales/Flea Markets/Craigslist are great places to find used tools and plants, especially estate sales where an older couple used to live. Also check your local FreeCycle, especially if you enjoy bulbs/rhizomes. You won't know their exact name, but a rose by any other name is still pretty.

Some favorite tools have come to my home in this manner. A sharp narrow bladed shovel, a turning fork, a kneeling/sitting bench and a garden wagon are a few that come to mind. The price was right and I find them to be valuable treasures.

Bad thing is... too much other stuff keeps following me home. lol
Be content moving inch by inch because, by days end, the inches, will add up to feet and yards.

Fulfilling ambitious objectives is usually done one step at a time.

My best finds were a wood/metal baker's rack, which I use for a potting bench & storage of small pots, a 2-wheel pot mover for big heavy containers and a 6 foot trellis.
Great tip! Smiling
