It must have been Select Seed’s promise that I could “buy now, pay later.” Like Michele, I have noticed prices from many of my favorite vendors creeping steadily upward over the past couple years; I’ve never had this much of a tab from Select Seeds. However, is $300 too much to pay for a big helping of summer garden confidence? Not for me. I now know my planters and beds will have $300 worth of action, even if the roofing destruction was worse than I thought.
Add this to a mere $90 at Plant Delights and around $50 (so far) from Bluestone (had to take advantage quickly of the 20% off). Nursery shopping won’t begin for a few months. All the same, I would be bored—though certainly wealthier—if I just sat back and watched the same stuff grow year after year. Does anyone ever reach the point where their garden is full? Where they don’t have to buy any seeds or plants at all? I would be very surprised if any Rant reader could say that. Can you?Posted by Elizabeth Licata on February 8, 2008 at 11:10 am, in the category Taking Your Gardening Dollar.
