Small is smarter
When you have a choice, buy little plants (in 4-inch nursery pots); they’re less expensive (usually under $5), easier to handle,
and will catch up to the larger ones with winter rains. Smaller plants are your best bet if you need multiples to fill out
a bed. Gallon-size plants, on the other hand, start around $10 each but can provide instant effects.
