Re: New Lowe's


In addition to what I said last message, I have to toally agree with you on
that Jim.  This is why I buy more via mailorder - very little locally.  The
kind of things I would buy at L's or HD would be annuals or something simple
like Hosta.  I would rarely - most likely never - buy anything that just
said Rudbeckia sp. on it.  I want to know the species so I can investigate
what the plant needs - I don't trust label suggestions.  I bought a couple
of houseplants a few years ago at Lowe's.  The labels did have the growers
name on them, but they were completely misnamed.  The photo on the tag was
the plant in my hand, but the name was for an entirely different plant.  I
emailed the Canadian grower who said they'd fix it next time around - yeah,
right.
