I work for Lowes in Pennsylvania. I have to say that if you aren't finding quality products, some manager if failing! I know ours are first quality, or like someone else mentioned nearly free. I took this job because of dealing with them. I also like that I do not have to guarantee the plant personally! Try and return a plant to lowes, they don't care if you killed it and brought it back, and you just get money back on a store card to buy whatever you want. If you guys aren't buying huge quantities, give it a shot. Try speaking with the specialist and dept manager out there, ours are great people with a lot of knowledge.
