RE: Mail Order Nurseries

Have to agree Kitty, although up till now I have avoided mail order.

Most places all sell the same plants around here. There were a few that
had specialty plants, but this year they closed up. I am really gonna be
stuck come next spring :(

Even tho Chicago is not far from me... I have driven to many nurseries
and garden centers to see what was available. Sorry to report, same
things that are here locally. Must be supply and demand, as you look
around the neighborhood, everyone is happy with the common
stuff....(both in annuals and perennials)

What's a gardener to do....
