Why wouldn't you want to buy from a nearby independent nursery or local
grower? Mail-ordered plants are smaller -- you often pay as much for a
seedling not old enough to survive in the garden as you'd pay for a
well-along gallon pot from a garden center. Mail ordered starts are often
straight from the greenhouse to you, not hardened off at all. Geraniums
are apt to be shipped as bare roots. Unless you're looking for specialty
bulbs or anything so different that only distant growers can provide it,
always support your local independent nurseries first & formost -- you'll
get larger more mature plants for the same money or less money.
