I truly understand both perspectives.  I have bought very little this year
since I'm unemployed.  I have marked a number of plants in my "wish list" to
purchase when I am re-employed and I'm guilty of looking for plant
"bargains" where ever I can find them because of the budget.

afford to do so--annuals or perennials.  There will always be economies of
scale for the larger box stores and chains, but that will mean limited
selections, too.  It is a difficult thing to balance, isn't it?

We, the hobbiest, are partly to blame by not supporting them totally. We
might buy some plants, but others are bought from the big box
stores/ebay/etc at reduced rates or just at sale times.. cuts that profit
margin down for them and stretches the ends even further.

Now being honest, where did you buy plants at this season? The high priced
smaller nurseries or .....

who only bought from two places so far this year...
one mail order and a smaller local nursery (who had a nice discount coupon,
so I am no better than most of
