Living in the country side makes shopping for my garden difficult. The closest local nursery is an hour and a half drive. A long way to go especially if you don’t find what you are looking for. I don’t like “settling” for something else. Lowe’s is about a 40 minute drive. The stock goes quickly and doesn’t have a wide variety and the quality of the stock is low. I have started shopping on the internet. Have been pleasantly surprised at the quality of the plants, the packaging and speedy delivery. Quite the change from a few years ago. I find I put more planning and research into my purchases with more successful results.

Do not buy any plants that have been treated with Neonicotinoids.
