Re: Great day... I guess

Sorry, I should have expressed myself better.

I'm just sick that 2 year old, multi-crowned gallons of 'Husker's Red' went
for $2., as did Buddleia 'Dartmoor', and Hellebores. ( Same age).

I've been fighting with the group to at least charge wholesale prices for
years. This is absolutely the last time I bring plants for the sale. Last
year I threatened to take back the 3 gallon fastigiate willows and
Hydrangeas that they wanted to price at $3. This year, I had to work, so
dropped off the plants a day ahead. I though the issue was resolved, or I
never would have brought them to the sale.  I'm so mad I could spit.
