Clint I find the same thing. What percentage of sales do you think the smaller more expensive plants are? I'm curious, we are growing much more rare and unusual stuff and producing them into tall square quarts, starting to sell alot more but it seems like the specialty plants people went online to the specialty places way back, then the big box lowered the perceived value, now it may be back there is demand but less supply so I think you are on to something, I hope I am too but the majority of sales is normal stuff but we do much higher % of unusual than the average place but we also have built a 40 year reputation doing that and catering to PHS and the local plant societies and arboretum members, I think it would be tougher for somebody new but hopefully not, and hopefully that changes!
