Is What You Say You're Selling REALLY What You're Selling?
I bought some grapevine cuttings recently, different varieties, and was thinking "why couldn't I grow grapevines and sell them?" I can of course. But I'm a newbie so,,,
I noticed many gravevine cuttings look exactly the same.
How can I be sure the "concord grapevine" I got was really a "concord"? Is there a way to verify this? Some sort of test? Can I send it somewhere for testing?
My initial thought is "buy from a reputable dealer" but that isn't good enough, they could have gotten the shipping mixed up, it's easy to make mistakes, or they could never have verified the vine.
I would hate to sell a bunch of "concord grapevines" just to find out down the road they weren't really concords at all.
Grapes are just one example. I also recently purchased willow cuttings http://gardengum.com/u/90 and they can get confusing to keep track of the types and, How can i be sure they are the type i think they are?
