Idly perusing paeonies on Kelways site, I chanced upon one being sold for �400. Not sure of the exchange rate but this is serious money whatever the currency. Naturally, my order of a mere �9.20 Catharina Fontgyn (or something like?) made me wonder just how much would you pay for a plant? Being a cheapskate (and penniless gardener), most of my garden has been raised from seeds and cuttings but every so often, the bank cards are stretched somewhat.....but never to the tune of of �400. Owning up to spending rather too much on a bloody acer (which is now gracelessly expiring as I speak), who has had to hide the awful truth from significant others? Wait anxiously for the bank statements? Lie?
Not counting multiple rose orders, do tell of your extravagances - it will undoubtable make many of us all feel a lot better (or envious), hearing of other frivolous spendthrifts in our midstBy the way, whats with the weird symbols instead of pounds or dollars? Is gardenweb being a little mealy mouthed about money as well as dubious swear words?
