OK Chick,
        Where were we? Oh, I remember! You were claiming that you were offering 53 new plants that weren't offered before this year and that Tony is offering another 37, right? Your point would be that a lot more than the less-than-10% figure I gave go into TC every year. Maybe 30%? Nah, I don't buy that. Not even close. How many of those plants are really new on the market? I'm saying that the more varieties there are that are not in TC, the more you'll still see the old-fashioned natural-division $100 and up market continue to work. That's where supply and demand come into play. If you have five divisions of your new hosta and a hundred people want it, then you are going to set the price pretty high, right? If you have a hundred and only five people want it, that price will drop fast. As I said in my bad sentence, that applies to a single plant, not in a general way to all the plants in that price class...............................hold on a minute.......................Uh-oh, this just came in from the First Look HQ.....................better sit down, this is going to be bad. We just received another ransom demand from the evil folks who kidnapped poor Lily. Here it is:

           I really don't like the looks of this, Chick. Wait a minute......Chick, Chicky, Chickydoodle!? Where have I heard that before? This seems strangely familiar. Like a voice from the past. Hmmmmmmm......I have to think about this.
