I find it interesting that you think you know what
the best long term business strategy is for Winterberry Farms. You hardly know
their business and yet you seem pretty comfortable telling them what their best
business practices should be. You are basically harassing Jim for selling a
legal product to willing buyers because you think it is going to cut into your
As far as your poll asking retail vendors if
wholesale price list should be available to anyone interested.............It
doesn't take a MBA to know what their answers would be.
Are you upset that Q and Z and Shady Oaks sells to
anyone interested that meet their minimum quantity requirements
I have ordered from all three of these companies
and have never sold a single hosta in my life. I'm guessing you believe they
should not sell to me either. Who do you think buys six packs of TC liners?
What's your reasoning behind your statement
that you don't think hosta prices should be discussed on this listserve? Why
should they NOT be discussed here...if that's what people want to talk about?
Like you said......It's a free
country.........well......it happens to be a free listserve too......
I feel we are very fortunate to have people here
who have a commercial interest in hostas. I would like to see more links to web
pages and sales list posted here, it makes it a more exciting place to hang
If your hosta business is going to suffer
because people know more about the inside of the hosta business then your
business plan has serious flaws in my opinion.
