Truthfully, I am extremely frugal, if not cheap. I love to make many container arrangements for my home during the growing season. I went to a supermarket one year and bought all of my annuals, they could never compare to D&D quality, ever. D & D uses only the best soil to grow in, they make sure they are not selling leggy or diseased plants, and they are fun to visit each year. You have to hurry, though, their reputation is excellent and they sell out of popular annuals quickly.
