    6 bucks per regular 6" annual. that included removal of old annual tilling bed, planting new annual, pine fines and initial watering.

    I switched to 6" longtime ago.

    takes just as long to plant a 6" plant as it does a 4.5". the 6" has more plugs and looks better from day one and has better survival. plus you need less of them...so I'm planting fewer plants, but having a better show, IMO

    I might be a lowballer too, because I am charging 25 installed [5 flat min]. I am getting my flats for 7$ though and if removal and prep is needed then that is extra.

    most 18 plant flats are 4 -4.5" pots.

    I've never even consider installing plugs into a landscape...which is what those nursery packs are more or less...
