Re: Daylilies


I'm sure you're right Jim.  Ads are expensive and what keeps the papers in
business.  Also, here gardening is much more seasonal, so not a lot of that
type of ad revenue year round.

However, just as stores have loss-leaders - bananas at 25c/lb, milk
$1.59/gal - to draw people in who will also pick up other items, papers
should run articles of interest to draw more readers who then will view
carpet ads on those pages.
