Prefer to buy cuttings or trees online?
Today I purchased the last Panache from a very reputable online nursery. Total including shipping was $ 35.00. The shipping was $ 15.00 of that. Each additional tree would have only cost an extra $ 3.00 to ship. Unfortunately all the other varieties I was interested in were sold out.
Having said all that. I have seen many varieties sell on eBay for 2-4 times the cost of having a tree delivered from a reputable nursery.
My personal preference is something that already has roots. Be it a tree or a rooted cutting. I'm just not good enough at rooting cuttings to pay very much for them.
So I just have to ask this question because I don't understand this phenomenon.
Do you prefer to buy cuttings or trees online? If you have a strong preference please state it. How much more are you willing to pay for cuttings than you are willing to pay for a tree?
