Bluestone Catalog Just Arrived - YIKES !!!
It was bound to happen, sooner or later: when my new BP catalog arrived
today, I quickly glanced at it to see if several perennials I was planning to
order were available. . .
First change: it appears there are no more 3-plants-for-a-single-price. . .
just price savings on multiples of three. . .which might be fine, actually,
because sometimes you only want one plant. . .but, then, start adding up
those 3-or-more-plants at the lower price, and you'll find price increases
of 50% to 75% over their most recent Spring catalog !
Sadly, the party's over - when catalog prices are the same or higher than
local nurseries, the marketplace has spoken.
