Chick, sometimes people seek the cheapest source because it is all they can 
afford.  Sometimes it is all they want to afford.  

I am thinking that name brands are something that you can depend on. For 
instance if I buy a plant from Mary I know it will be a good one because she 
has done all the growing and observing to make sure that she is putting 
something out there that people will not be disappointed in.

The person that I buy most of my hostas from does not sell things that he 
finds to not be hardy.  If I buy a plant from him that is not a hardy grower 
he informs me so I will know what I am getting.  I appreciate his honesty and 
his concern for my money.  Sometimes he just gives me a plant that I am 
interested in that has been a known failure.  Usually they die for me too, 
sad to say.  But I love a challenge.

Chick, I think you would be a good person for the job, if we should ever 
reach that point.  N.
