Hi Diane in CT,

The Spring Hill nursery, just off I-75 near Dayton, is fantastic.  However,
I learned, from the staff there, that the nursery and catalog are not
connected.  This doesn't make a lot of sense to me (same name, etc).  Dunno
if it's true or not.  I believe you get what you pay for:  a 1 cent plant
is likely just that, worth 1 cent.  This adds up to my 2 cents worth.
