Ooh, got to check that out to see if my Lowe's has them! It's been too long since I checked to see what every body has, even If I don't buy anything. I've found that if you go on a regular basis, you can sometimes find something very special that way. That's how I found my favorite rose, the name of which I've forgotten! When I bought it as a bare root at Lowe's, they were putting them out as I got there, and they only had two of that cultivar. I snatched up one, and not regretted my impulsive purchase.

I am signed up for a trial period of, well, I have to say it out loud, YOGA at a Yoga Pod right next door to Lowes. I need to regain some flexibility in my joints after years of pounding the pavement as a distance runner. I got 30 days unlimited for $30 to see if I like it and want to continue...so I may be over at Lowes quite a bit LOL

Gina, funny you should mention yoga. A trainer at Planet fitness told me I needed more flexibility, which blew me away. I was a ballet dancer as a child, a gymnast in my school years, and could always do things like the splits, back bends, walkovers and back hand springs with ease, but now I can't even sit with my legs stretched out and bend forward to touch my toes all the way, so I guess he's right. Having issues in my shoulder joints. I'll bet you'll like it so much you will keep doing it, and then you get to go to Lowe's every day!

Well, it good up to a point LOL. But at this stage I agree with you, I have a lot of pain when I do try to run now, and no pain when I don;t. Except usual old lady stiff pain

For anyone looking for plants close to palatka i highly reccomend the ace there. They had salvia, agastache, magic fountain delphiniums, different types of gaillardia, and my biggest shock was they had holkyhocks. I did not think they would grow in zone 9a but there they were. I was tempted for the hollyhock, but i came home with a red and orange agastache.

I went to Lowe's in the rain the other day, so I didn't stay long. They have some shrubs, assorted evergreens and bare root roses. I was thinking about buying another rose but I sure won't be buying one from them. No good selection, and expensive! $11.98 for #1 grade. I'm looking for a specific variety, so I guess it will be ordering online if I get a rose this year.

Since I don't know what Wal Mart and Lowe's will get, and they probably won't get what I want anyway, I'm ordering online this year, mostly from Gilbert Wild and Almost Eden.

Lowes had their shipment today. I saw bouganvillas, they have alot of roses, hydrangeas, most of the salvia splendens were gone. Saw same salvias from last time. Nothing was in clearance. Only thing that caught my eye were large flowered shasta daisies.

Wal-Mart had some hibiscus and I purchased an interesting looking April night salvia. They had a bunch of those mini plants like marigolds for sale. Other than that nothing too interesting.

Nothing great here yet, either. Some really ratty bare root roses, a very poor selection of varieties. The usual shrubs and evergreens. The really neat annuals and perennials haven't arrived yet.

My local ace must be reading my mind. I wanted another celosia intenz classic and there it was today. Saw magic fountain delphinium, gallardias, and verbena.

Magic Fountain Delphinium are stunning, but only an annual here.

I think delphinium is an annual here, too. I remember many years ago when I first started gardening, I wanted an English style garden. Off to Lowe's I went, and bought foxgloves, delphinium, stock, etc. these don't do well in our heat. A lot of money spent to throw away plants. I have since learned to imitate the look with plants more suited to my climate. This is my main gripe against Lowe's; selling plants to unknowing gardeners that aren't suited to their particular climate.

They are annuals here. I can't bring myself to waste money every year on annuals

I actually think the delphiniums are worth the five bucks they cost here even if they only last four months. I have a giant nw delphinium t hat i will be exper imenting in the summer to see if i can make it survive through the summer.

I do buy some annuals I can't raise from seed, such as lantana and callibrochoa. I also buy dill, basil and fennel plants because I have a hard time raising them from seed.of course, dill and fennel are biennials, but they seldom live to the second year because the Black Swallowtail babies eat them up.
