I know my biggest problem is I am cheap.
I refuse to order a lot of plants because the shipping is so high and the plants are so little. I go to my local nursery that is only a block away and their annuals are 1.59 for a six pack. Then I hit Lowes go to their markdown rack and get the rest of the annuals for 1.00. I combine the tropical plants that I have stored over the winter from year to year with whatever cheap annuals I have found.
