Re: New Lowe's

Hi, Gene. Well, I want to know who grew it as a matter of assigning responsibility. There are growers whose plants I would never buy again because of bad experience. It's like catalog buying at the local nursery. And I want to know where it was grown so I can decide if it needs a grace period in the lathhouse before facing my part of the Florida blast furnace. There are many big growers who are farther south than I am--I don't worry about their plants. But growers of some plants--citrus, for example--are mostly a zone or more north of me, so I worry about those plants a lot.

Hello Jim,
Eventually all nurseries must carry that information for each plant they sell... who and where from. We all should be doing it now, I think. Not sure on the details. May I ask why that information is of importance to you? Think I know... like to hear your comments.

Didn't take long to figure out what I don't like about Lowe's. Their plants are cavalierly tagged [aforementioned "Rudbeckia sp" for example] and, even more irksome to me, the grower is not identified. At least at HD, one can tell who grew the plant and usually where.
