Buyer Beware - Can O' Worms

Dear all;
	I didn't really mean to open up a replay of 'horror shows', 
but to relate a recent example.
	New growers especially need to be aware of unscrupulous 
business practices of many mass marketers. Buy bulbs from dedicated 
specialty growers. Observe your plants at bloom to verify their ID. 
Don't be taken in by claims.

	Most important don't let low prices equal bargains. You buy 
what you pay for. I especially hate the color enhancements in 
catalogs on bulb packages.

			Best	Jim W.
