Yes, they can be dangerous to the wallet. That's nice that he takes the time to take photos for you. I'm thinking he probably doesn't do that for everyone.Pictures and measurements speak a thousand words
also sells high end plants. Either they are buying wholesale, many semi select plants, a few highly select plants or they are friends. You would have to ask others I don't know. I tend to buy highly select plants.So if OZ is not a retail opperation, how is it so many of our "select" members are buying from him on a regular basis? Are you buying as wholesalers?
I think that is up to Terry. He decides what is doable in his business. He also decides what to sell and to who. I don't know if he has strict guidelines or not. I'd say at least 1k is a good number to start with but after that sometimes more other orders less. I actually understand perfectly why he does this. He must work super hard breeding and caring for his plants. He has huge greenhouses. It is not profitable to worry about a plant here and a plant there. His overhead is too high for that. Also time is at a premium I am sure and customer service/ shipping would be an overwhelming chore if he had zillions of small buying customers.Thanks for answering and what you spend is of course, your business. Many folks are simply interested in ordering from him and knowing what's required to do so. I think many people couldn't afford what you're buying, though. Since he's only 2 1/2 hrs. from me I need to see his operation someday. But, I don't need the temptation right now with a 2nd g.h. under construction.
I think he's got respect as a grower and hybridizer. I do think some are question breeding lines and trends, though. But controversy can be a good thing since it opens up discussion.
