The offer is designed to complement Kmart's already popular garden departments among do-it-yourself gardeners. Qualifying plants at a Kmart lawn and garden center can be identified with a Plants for Life, Guaranteed tag and will automatically come with a lifetime guarantee upon purchase of the plant. For novice or even the most seasoned gardeners, keeping a plant thriving can prove challenging, so if any eligible plant dies, simply return it to a local Kmart store, along with the original receipt, and Kmart will replace it for free.*
