I bought eight rose bushes, a white flowering dogwood, and a yoshino cherry tree from my local Walmart last February. All of the plants are thriving, BUT of the roses only five were what they were labeled to be.
Well, the main thing about Wal-Mart is make sure you buy and plants or bareroots in the bags early. They rot and get all mushy very quickly. As far a chemicals go, that is the cheapest place I can find them (insect spray, fertilizer...). There seeds are terrible though for the price. You get those little packets with about 10 seeds each. I hate that! For seeds go to Cheap Seeds.com, they are great!
