Tips that will help you select the right plants

When looking for plants online, there are a few things to keep in mind. The first is that you want to make sure that the seller ships to your area. If they don’t, then it’s probably not a good idea to order from them. Another thing you should look out for is whether or not the seller has a good return policy in case something goes wrong with your order. You’ll also want to know if they have any kind of warranty on their plants, so that if they die within a certain amount of time after getting them, they will replace them or refund your money. It’s also important that you know exactly what kind of plant you’re buying before ordering it from an online merchant.

If you’re buying from a nursery or garden center near your home, then it’s probably safe to assume that their stock is healthy and disease-free since they’re selling it locally. However, when dealing with an online merchant who sells across state lines, this may not be the case – especially if the plant has been shipped by mail truck instead of airplane or truck (which means it could take weeks longer than normal).

Getting a good selection of high quality, healthy plants is important to ensure that you can enjoy them for years to come. Whether you are buying plants online or in person, here are some tips that will help you select the right plants.

1.​ ​Look​ ​for​ ​a​ ​reputable​ ​seller

2.​ ​Get​ ​plants​ ​that​ ​are​ ​not​ ​transported​ ​long distances

3.​ ​Choose​ ​plants​ ​that have been grown in a greenhouse or under cover

  1. Choose healthy-looking plants with no insect damage or signs of disease
  2. Check the seller’s return policy before ordering.

Take a look at photos of the actual plants being sold so you can see how they grow in real life as opposed to pictures taken in ideal conditions (elevated lighting, ideal soil). This will give you an idea of what size pot each plant arrives in.

Don’t forget the basics. Before you start shopping, make sure you have all the essentials like potting soil and fertilizer. You can also buy these things in bulk and save money in the long run.

Consider buying from multiple sources. If you find an item that isn’t available on Amazon or Home Depot, check out other sites like Walmart, Target and Lowe’s before making a purchase.

Read reviews before buying anything expensive, like trees or shrubs. Reviews will tell you what customers think about certain plants and whether they live up to expectations or not. This can help you make an informed decision about what to buy.

Ask questions about the care of your plant before buying it online so that you know how much work it will take after purchase (e.g., pruning). To buy outdoor plants for your home, contact us.
