SHARING/GARDENING - I Sold Heaps Of Sunflowers To A Superb Buyer Yesterday
As you can see, I always picked the best for my buyers - all the good ones will go first and sometimes I left with nothing for myself and had to start all over again ! Nevertheless, I am happy especially buyers are happy and appreciative for my efforts and time taken to germinate and take care of their babies before they left. 😊 One buyer even willing to pay for a kaffir lime plant that the caterpillar happily eating away the leaves (see pic#2 - of cos I tidy up before I mailed). That was my best & last tallest ones. It is now safely in buyer's home. Thanks for not being fussy, Buyer S ! 😊 So, if you are interested in any plant and I don't have them instock, you will need to have patience to wait till they grow up and ready for delivery. As I have limited time, space and efforts - so there will be a queuing system. First come first serve. All pre-orders will need to have deposit or full payment, regardless if you are a repeat buyer or new. I do not work with moving target anymore as I don't know when you are going to bill on me as I have limited time & space to work on order queues, hence I need to use them more effectively. I will definitely delivered what I promised to you unless I bite the dust and left the world for good. If I am hit with "technical" issues, I will get back to you to discuss. As for any ready plants, I will pick the best for you - first come first serve also. I DO NOT provide any more pics any more (as I have met a few potential buyers and asked for a lot of pics, I had to spend time hunting in my garden for the best plants for them and they didn't even reply or thank me - yeah you ..yes you ...you just spoiled the market for the rest of potential buyers 😡). If you can't trust me to give you my best, let's not waste time. I charged average $2/month (without pot or MOG) from seeds germination and all the ways to the time I delivered the seedlings or plants to you. This covers the time taken, efforts and materials used, etc. This fee may be subjected to changes as the water bills, other levies, material prices changes etc. Hence, the price of my seedlings or plants will depend on when you want me to handover the plants. The longer you wait, the more expensive they get. There will also be a small token added for efforts if the seeds need some pre-work before germination. I have to admit I may not be able to compete with some potted plants, which are massive commercially produced, selling elsewhere. However, I can assure you that all edibles are organic grown as I am a purist in organic gardening - no usages of "funny" additives and there is no need to do a lot of washing before consuming. That is to say, they may need a while to grow since they are all organically grown. In any case, some of my buyers still think my charges are very reasonable and is low/average in pricing relatively compared to others (if not, how to close those deals ?) As a Seller, I am very grateful for your thought and this has spur me on. 😊 (FYI - Fast Food chains pay at least $8.50/hour of work on weekdays and I only charged $2/month include water bills and everything else, I reckon I am not expensive as well ?). Like I mentioned before, always think long-term on how much you would save rather than how much you pay now for the seedlings/plants. In fact, the cheapest option is to grow your own. 😊 Thanks for reading & happy gardening !
