Hubby will attest to the fact that I don't mind paying a bit more for quality. Actually he often remarks on it, and I often give him reason to remark. However, I draw the line at paying $40.00 for a single peony ring. Oh, and I don't need just one, I need five. Even I acknowledge that $200 for plant support is out of line.

After five years of use my last peony ring resembles the after-affects of a coathanger mating with a blender, but unless the Lee Valley one plans on weeding my entire garden in it's spare time, I'll stick to the $5/pop variety. I really don't like them as I often wait too long to reign my flowerbeds in and the rings aren't really built to open around the bushes. In a perfect world I wouldn't spend the 1st weekend in June cursing while taming my backyard jungle, but I'm willing to admit Martha and I travel in different gardening circles.

Really, doing the math I'll get 40 years of well supported peonies with the occassional trip to Canadian Tire. Hubby would be so proud!
