Dumb Question about the Hosta Auction
I'm an auction virgin. I plan to stay that way, at least for now. Why bother with the auction if the hostas are readily available (and even less expensive) than those on the auction list? I just assumed that the auction-list hostas would be rare babies and impossible to find elsewhere. I just bought myself a Rainforest Sunrise for $9.25 through a mail order catalogue. It's on the auction list for $10.99. I don't get it.
