Lowe's can always move products from their garden center indoors, except for live plants. There are ways around the order.
Seeds should be available for people wanting to start a garden. There are predictions of future food shortages.

ALL of this is unconstitutional! The coronavirus was issued by President Trump and continues grossly exaggerated for politics and marketing. No one in our country has any right to tell citizens they cannot live and operate by their own beliefs. I have learned how this functions from my work in 20 countries, but cannot believe it is allowed here.
I also have a lot of personal experience. I used to get the flu each year when I was vaccinated. After I stopped the vaccination I NEVER got the flu in 50 years! So if I happend to get the virus, I will NOT see any doctors, just take herbs (and avoid sugar and dairy products) that worked 100% of my experience.
