Oh no..garden centres will put their prices up Smile
It's still got to go some to match the tulip mania... according to wiki.....At the peak of tulip mania, in February 1637, some single tulip bulbs sold for more than 10 times the annual income of a skilled craftsperson. It is generally considered the first recorded speculative bubble.

What do you think...250,000 euro? I'm off into the garden to see what I can find...
