Re: New Lowe's

Makes sense to me. Younger ones do seem to adapt faster, and probably in a year's time, you can't tell the difference between a 1-gallon plant and a 3- or 5-gallon plant. Unless, of course, there is some other age-dependent factor, such as flowering or fruiting age, that trumps size and cost.

Speaking of size of plants/containers, I suppose I'm weird, but one
of the reasons I buy mail order is that I usually WANT smaller
plants. I find that smaller ones sometimes make the transition to my
garden quicker and they are easier to fit into an awkward space (like
between tree roots or next to a drainage pipe - where I can't dig a
big hole, but once planted, the roots can make their own space.
