Buying Plants Online -- All Things Are Not Equal

When browsing and buying from your favorite online plant source, make note that not all 4" pot sizes are the same.

That is quite a difference! Thanks for the information and the visual comparison. I would love to get plants like the one on the right. Like you said, they give us very little information and it is hard to make a decision, I like to share my pictures whenever I can so others will know what to expect. I hope everyone else will do the same.

Thanks for the visual as well as the info. I haven't ordered stuff in pots for several years (too expensive to ship up here) but if I do I will inquire about the pot size in detail. I tip my hat to you.

Boy buying online can be a nightmare, I use to buy from Michigan bulb over and over and always received little sticks for plants. Did I learn anything? Not soon enough boy am I nieve they reassured me that starting with smaller plants was the way to go and would be much healthier in the long run. And did they grow? Most of them I had to ask for replacements and some lived but take a long time to ever get to a size you could call a grown nursery plant and then they complained because I asked for too many replacements after spending hundreds of dollars. So please do not buy from this company or you too will find dissapointment, Thank you for reading my article and hope this prevents a disaster for whom ever. Poobles.
