Walmart Garden Center / complete waste of money!

1 United States Review updated:

At the walmart store located in trinidad, colordado, there is very poor care regarding the garden center. There is a greenhouse set up at walmart with hundreds of plants in it. On the week of April 6th, 2007, we had freezing drizzle and temperatures fell below freezing. I noted that a portion of the greenhouse siding was down and the plants exposed to the cold. Of course, no one was in the garden center to report this to. A few days later when i returned, hundreds of these plants were frozen. These plants are not salvageable at this point. Also noted some of the plants that are part of the garden center connected to the walmart store also suffered frost damage.

What a waste of money, and totally disgusting to let all of these plants just freeze. I would like to know who is responsible for this or does anyone in management care. It's probably just a tax write off so it's not a big deal, however, i think it shows very poor management and lack of responsibility, plus such a waste.

    Why should Walmart care about killing all their live garden center stock? They (along with Lowe's, Home Depot, K-Mart and most other big box stores) get their plants in on consignment. If they kill them, the grower is the one who takes a loss, not the store. If they let them freeze, it doesn't cost them anything. If they don't water them and they die, oh well. In fact, most of the growers have merchandisers who go to the stores and work the plants instead of the store itself doing any work with the plants.
