Re: shopping

This place I went to is high, $14.99 a flat.  But I go there because she
always gives us a discount.  I think flats of annuals are usually
around$12.99 here, but you can keep your eye out for sales at $9.99.  I
don't buy flats of annuals for myself, so I don't pay close attention.
BTW - I do grow a favorite annual geranium from seed, the AAS winner, Black
Magic Cherry.  I found a real deal on the internet from Harris for 50 seeds
for about the price of 25, so I went for it.  They sent me 25 - it was a
misprint. When I asked, though, they sent me the other 25.  Mind you, I
don't NEED 50, so I put some of the seedlings in my sale for 50c each and
they sold. (I always put stickers on these plants indicating to wait to
plant after 5/15 and to harden them off)
