    In the nursery industry there is a saying, "The only good plant is a dead plant" by that they mean they hope you kill it because you will only go out and buy more.

    Sarraceniaobsessed: i have worked for a local nursery that has just the oposite attitude that u described. infact my boss got quite upset witha woman that purchased several hundred dollars worth of plants to make her back yard look great for her sons Graduation party. she planted stuff where it looked nice with no regard of weither or not it would actually grow. my boss almost refused to sell her plants when she came in a week later to actually do her spring planting even though she was going to spend several hundred more. same thing happens every year, ppl plant tomatoes and such from him to early, they get killed by frost just like he told them they would and he just sits and shakes his head(extreamly annoyed) when they come bback to get more after the others were killed by frost. anyways to make a long story short not everyone is in it just for the money.

    Quote: "The only good plant is a dead plant". Yeah, and they get a tax wright-off to boot. There is a nursery here that I go to occasionally, and some of the folks that work act like you you are asking them for their wallet if you ask them for a discount, yet they don't mind letting plants die away. Pitiful isn't it.
