Re: garden show

I have to admit, I do research......but I am very guilty of purchasing  
plants on a whim.  Often I go to sales that occur once a year or such,  often there 
are plants that I have never seen before, and am interested  in.  I will 
often purchase these on a whim, and then do research  later.  Unfortunately, more 
times than not, there is very little  information available with these  rare 
plants.  I usually make sure  that the person selling the plant is reputable, 
but even then they will often  tell me that they have no experience at all, nor 
much info.
Loved the picture of the Chinese clivia, by the way.  I think it is  very 
pretty.  Definitely something that I might take a second look at, and  depending 
on the price.....would purchase on a whim.   (smile)
 P. S.  I'm just jumping in on this thread, playing catch  up.  So this might 
not be along the discussion line.  My apologies if  it isn't.

I am  always amazed that people don't do any research before purchasing
plants or  other things for that matter.  It isn't that the information  is
difficult to come by...newspapers, magazines,  TV...duh!!!
