10 Questions You Need To Ask When Buying Wholesale Plants

There are many benefits to buying wholesale plants. They can be purchased at a lower cost per unit than smaller plants, and they also last longer because they’re more mature when you buy them. You might not have thought about it, but there is an art to buying wholesome plants for resale. There are certain things you need to ask that will help you avoid getting ripped off by a less-than-honest vendor or supplier. These questions will help you identify which vendors and suppliers are trustworthy and which ones may try to take advantage of you because you don’t know any better. When it comes to buying wholesome plants at a fair price, there is much more involved than merely asking if the price is right and taking their word for it that the quality is good.



What is the name and type of plant you’re buying?

The first thing you need to know is the name and type of plant you’re buying. Then you’re in a better position to know if you’re getting a good deal or if you’re being overcharged because you don’t know what you’re looking for. If you ask for a type and the vendor/supplier doesn’t know what you mean, you’re not in a good position. You don’t know if the type of plant you’re getting is the type you actually want, and you don’t know if you’re getting a good deal or if you’re being overcharged because you don’t know what you’re looking for.


How much is the shipping weight of each plant?

Shipping weight is important because it’s the measurement used to calculate the cost of shipping. Some vendors/suppliers will charge you a flat rate no matter what the shipping weight is, while others will charge you a percentage of the shipping weight, usually 10-40%. You should know the shipping weight of each plant before you commit to buying them so you can figure out what the shipping cost is likely to be. If the vendor/supplier doesn’t know, you can either find out the shipping weight of one plant and multiply it by the number of plants you’re buying or you can ask them to find out for you. Wholesale nursery


Does the vendor offer a warranty?

Whether you’re buying a brand new product or something you’re buying second-hand, you should know if the vendor/supplier offers a warranty. If you buy new, you can often get a warranty that lasts for a year or more, giving you some piece of mind that you can get a replacement plant or a refund if something goes wrong. When buying second-hand, a warranty can help keep you protected. If the plant turns out to be diseased, you can send it back to the vendor and they will either replace it or refund your payment. A warranty doesn’t mean the plant is guaranteed to be healthy, though. It just gives you a way to get a refund or replacement if there’s a problem.


Can you visit the supplier and see where the plants are grown?

You can do this at both the wholesale and retail stages of your operation. If you can visit the supplier of your plants, you can see how they’re growing them. You can also ask about fertilization, irrigation, and other things you can’t see from just looking at the plants. If you’re buying from a retail nursery, you can see how they grow their plants. Some wholesale nurseries don’t allow customers to visit their growing operations. If they do, it’s usually only once a year during growing season. This allows you to see how they operate their business, but it’s not helpful when you need a plant right now.


Do you get to pick which plants you want?

If you’re buying a specific variety, do you get to pick which plants you want or are they just randomly giving you what they have available? The only way to know if you’re getting what you want is if you get to pick what you get. If you don’t get to pick, you don’t know if you’re getting what you want. What if you want a specific plant variety, but all they have available are other varieties? Do they let you pick from what they have available or do they just give you what they have? If they don’t let you pick, you don’t know if you’re getting what you want.


Are there any extra fees for delivery or care?

Are there any extra fees for delivery or care? Some vendors/suppliers will charge you for delivery (delivery fee), care (care fee), or both delivery and care (delivery and care fee). If they do, you need to know what the fee is before you commit to buying the plants. You don’t want to get a bill in the mail after you’ve paid for the plants that catches you off guard and makes you wonder if you’re being overcharged. If they don’t charge for delivery or care, ask if they plan to start charging in the future because they may be trying to get you in while they’re still offering this service for free.


Can you visit the nursery and meet with the people who will be growing your plants?

If you can visit the nursery where the plants are being grown, you can see how they’re taking care of them. This will also let you meet the people who are growing your plants. You can ask questions about their operation and see how they take care of their plants. This can help you feel more confident about the plants you’re buying. You can also see if the nursery is clean and well organized and see how the plants are being grown. If you go to the nursery, you can see if they’re growing the type of plants you want. You can also ask what they’re growing and find out if they have other varieties you can buy.


Is there more than one variety available for purchase? If so, what is included in that price?

Different varieties of plants cost different amounts to grow. Ask if there are different varieties available for purchase and what those prices are. This way, you know that the price you’re being charged is a fair price and is consistent with the price of other varieties. If they don’t offer different varieties or they don’t tell you what other varieties are available for purchase, you don’t know what you’re getting or how much it costs.


Is there anything else you’d like to know before purchasing from this supplier/vendor?

You might feel like you’ve covered everything, but there might be something else that’s important to you. You need to ask any questions you have before you agree to buy from them. You don’t want to find out that there’s something important that you don’t know after you’ve already committed to buying their plants. You need to buy wholesale plants, especially if you’re growing plants indoors. It’s a lot easier to buy a larger quantity of plants at a discounted price than it is to buy smaller quantities at full price. When you’re buying plants in bulk, you need to make sure you’re buying them from a reputable source and getting a good deal. These are the 10 questions you need to ask when buying wholesale plants.
