What You Should Know About Ordering Berry Plants Online

Don't Order Berry Plants Online Till You Read This

The ability to order berry plants online is a welcome change for many berry lovers. After all, local nurseries don't always carry the berry plants we'd like to grow. However, online berry plant ordering isn't always everything it's cracked up to be. Before you jump in, there are some things you need to keep in mind...

Not All Nurseries Are Created Equal

It's important to understand that when it comes to ordering berry plants online, the quality of the plants you get will impacted by the quality of the nursery you're buying from. Just because someone puts up a website and promises to send you the best berry plants in the world doesn't mean it's so.

Before ordering from any online nursery, make sure the website you're ordering from is reputable. If a website will send you any berry plant you want during any month of the year, they don't have quality in mind. If a website charges $5 for a plant that should cost $15, something isn't adding up.

Just Because You Pay For It Now...

So now you know that a good nursery won't ship all plants at all times. However, there are many reputable online nurseries that will sell berry plants year round but won't ship them till the time is right. If you don't pay attention to the product details, you might pay for a plant now and not get it for three or four months. It won't be the nurseries fault you didn't pay attention -- it'll be yours.

My advice is to always check the shipping schedule when ordering berry plants online. Don't assume it'll ship now if you pay for it now. Read the entire product description on the product page and go over the companies shipping policies. That way you won't be in for any unpleasant surprises.

And remember, the Internet is a place for great deals -- but it's also the seed of quite a few headaches. By keeping the above tips in mind you can avoid some of the headaches that can pop up when ordering berry plants online.
