Catalog in the mail - is the cost worth it?
I just got another plant catalog in the mail...gorgeous pics! Am I correct in thinking that the more beautiful the catalog is...the higher the cost of a plant or flower would be? I am thinking that that there may be less expensive places to purchase or even trades for the same plant...and that the pics don't reflect the plant quality, just the care given before the photographer arrived. I can't possibly afford their prices. If I find a plant with the same "name" cheaper somewhere else...it has a chance to look like the pic someday..right? Yes, I'm new at this. I've got 1 year as a trial and error gardener...mother nature was not kind last year. Thanks for any comments! LC Grace
