Re: OT: K-Mart irises going cheap

From: Bill Shear <BILLS@hsc.edu>

Our local equivalent of K-Mart, Roses and Walmart, are the absolute worst
places to buy plants.  The plants are never cared for at all, and are left
on the shelves long after they have expired.  In summer, bedding plants
(including Impatiens!) are put right out in full sun in the parking lot and
not watered.  Yet people still buy their plants. Go figure.

Prompted by my seeing a lady shell out $15 for an obviously very dead
juniper "bonsai" yesterday at Walmart.
