What is Wally World? That sounds like a joke store?

Well it is - WallMart. Some do think of it as a joke store when it comes to live plant material. The joke may be on you, the pruchaser.

Most of the time the plants are tagged wrong,as in my case of the water lily!
But I went to buy something,and they didn't have it,and I hate walking oput without buying something,these were right beside the cashier,so I bought one.
Each year I kept potting it up ,saying to myself,well maybe next year it will bloom,and this was the year,but it is not what I was to have!!!
Wonder if I can take it back,and charge them 3 yrs worth of growing fertilizing and potting????
They say they guarantee everything!!!!!

I bought one of my first lily's there and it bloomed it's head off right away and the right color and everything. I still have it in the "way too small" container (going into the second year now and it is already blooming very well in my temporary swimming pool pond. It cost like $4.00 at my Wall-Mart.

There is one Walmart that really has a nice and clean greenhouse,just 5 miles to my south in Derby,Ks,they really take good care of there plants,the rest in town are just so so.
But we always tend to go the the one closest to us,which in my case,is one of the so so's!
But I see that to with Lowes and Home Depot.
