RE:>>I finally realized in order to compete in life some of these things
I have to buy from the big boys.
Okay, Bob, but I don't start by thinking the big boys have many answers.
I go there ONLY when price IS the primary motivation for buying.
I never expect value equal to what my specialty retailer has to offer.
Would I pay $30.00 bucks at vendor ABC for Hosta 'whatever' if I knew
that very same item was available at Walmart for $10.00? Of course
not. But I know what I'm buying. What about that customer who
buys these plants and the guy forgets to mention that they are shade-tolerant
plants and probably won't do well in the full sun? Should they
have invested the extra 20 bucks and maybe had a more positive experience?
I'm just not that impressed with them 95% of the time... even if they are
"Always the Low Price".
