Thanks, both of you, and yeah, Bower, the market for mums this year is ridiculous. They are at every store, it seems. Mine are $5 at market, which is unfortunately low, but that's what it takes to sell as many as I have.

I had one potential customer get talked out of buying by another woman who was with her. As they walked away, I heard one of them say "well they are $3.95 at Wal-Mart." My plants are in bigger pots and have about another month left on the time-release Osmocote that is in the media, which in my mind makes them higher quality, but even that aside, I am happy to be able to come within a dollar of Wal-Mart's price, given that their resources are just a touch greater than my own.
