Changes coming to your box store garden center

More interesting news concerning Home Depot and Hines Nursery. According to Les, "Hines has given all their reps notice that at the end of January they will be let go. Home Depot is going to a program where the merchandising company will manage the ordering at the store level. This is the same merchandising company that regularly confuses agapanthus with hemerocallis or phormium with dietes. At Lowe’s they are going to a computer program for product replenishment and sales reps will no longer be welcome in their stores, much like WalMart did two years ago. How the plant selection at your local WalMart?" Read the whole comment by Les here.  It will be interesting to watch how this all plays out. It seems the only constant these days is change.
