Re: Re: Holiday Shopping/ Rex Begonia

I realize you need to be careful about selection of material for your
nursery.  It could easily get out of hand.  I don't know how much direct
retail you do compared to your mailorder business but if you do a fair
amount I think little surprises like the Begonias just one year and
something else another year would be added incentive for regulars to return,
wondering "what's Gene going to surprise us with this year?"
