I have 30 bushes, carpet roses and clematis to plant still. Those darn sales. I just could not walk away from 1.00 and 5.00 for plants that were $25-$30 early in the season. I am trying to decide if they will be planted in the garden or in pots for the patio.

I work at a nursery and we get the regular Prickely Pear, but we also sell a friendly thornless one. I love the "tunas" (fruits) from the regular one, but am not willing to endure the "jumping thorns". I've done more than enough of surgery with tape and tweezers, thank you very much! Anybody have the thornless one?
Heal em in somewhere or just plop the container in the ground and think about it over winter.
Last year on November 5, I spent ~ 50 $ at Earl May buying 10 shrubs at 5 $ each. Some of those had retail prices of 60 + $. Total retail value of > 400 $. I was Soooooo proud of myself.
I had cleaned out a tomato bed so I just dug long troughs and buried them container and all and over winter laid out where I would plant them.
