Inexpensive queen alert
Went yesterday to a nursery I like for my annuals. Great selection at $8.99 for a flat of 48. Not bad at all me thinks. Anyway, noticed out front some very large queens. Price tag said $19.95. Thought it might be a mistake, but no, others nearby quoted the same amount. Chose 3 flats of flowers and took a walk over to their tropical greenhouse. Dozens of these large queen palms, all I'd say somewhere between 8 to 10 ft. in height and very healthy looking for 20 bucks. Now, I got a smaller queen from this nursery last year, so I didn't grab 1, but...rethinking it now. I will probably go back for a flat of coleus, so, I think I'll be adding to the collection. Truoble is, the plant won't fit into my car without opening a window. Funny thing...much smaller majesties all over too for $16.95. Go figure... Anyone in the area who's interested might want to check them out. North side of Rt. 34 in Holmdel across the road from another much larger nursery, also with a huge selection of tropicals.
