Rare and Exceptional Plants for the
Discriminating Gardener and Collector
Home : Ordering : Wholesale Sampler
For those of y’all that can’t write or think as fast as I can talk and have asked me to spell out the Sampler Deal, here 'tis.......
As you may or may not know, we wholesale virtually all of the plants that we grow for $1,950.00 per thousand in 2" tree bandpots, 50 to a 10 X 20 Lattice Flat. Included at no extra cost is a detailed care tag with a color picture of the plant. Those plants too new to have a color tag are provided with a 4 line, 3/4" computer printed tag. These heavy, reusable, open bottom tree bands offer many benefits. Besides air pruning the roots as they reach the bottom of the pot, they have root guides inside the pot that prevent that gnarly mess that happens when roots grow in a round pot or plug. Since the walls of the pot are straight with virtually no taper, they fit snug up against each other in the flat, there is no wasted space, and the soil volume is about 300% more than a 50 plug cell.
Anyway, like I said with very few exceptions, most plants are $1.95 each. The only exceptions that come to mind are our Hybrid Hellebores, which, if you are buying by the thousand, can also be purchased for $1.95. The hardy Cyclamen are a 2-year crop and we sell these flowering size plants for $2.75. The Hexastylis splendens (left) is a really neat Asian Hardy Ginger with huge, striking, silvery mottled leaves and scary looking silver dollar sized flowers.
White Flower Farm sold out at $22.95, we sell them for $3.50. Hosta laevigata is a rare species that if and when you can find it, costs at least $40.00, we sell it for $3.50 and a few of the newer plants out of Tissue Culture are in the $2.50 range as we have to recover exploration and establishment costs. Eventually our goal is to bring the prices down on everything.
Soooo, when you buy a sampler, what you will get is 100 plants. 5 each of 20 different plants including the more expensive ones, ALL at the $1.95 price. Yes, you heard that right folks, ALL at the $1.95 price. We do this to make it easy for you to get started with some of these rare and unusual, but still virtually idiot proof for the average home gardener, plants. And......... There is NO CHARGE for boxing or shipping!!!
There will be one tag per row of five plants since we hope that you will use these plants in a display bed and not resell them. This is a great way to start a little border of unusual stuff so that your customers can see that rare doesn't mean difficult. After you see the plants, I'm sure that you will want more for resale. And you won't need to worry about committing to large quantities since we're happy to mix flats for you, 5 of this, 10 of that, at no extra charge ever.
Just fill out the New Wholesale Customer Form and we'll get the out to you ASAP and fax you an invoice when they ship. Two days later you’ll call us up with glee in your voice and lavish us with praise which I need almost as much as the dinero. I look forward to sharing these garden gems with you.
