Healthier plants Trees are often healthier when bought online - always ensure that purchasing from a reputable nursery who are checked for plant disease and overall health. The trees will be kept in optimal growing conditions until purchased and shipped.
Minimal handling Buying directly from a nursery will ensure the plants are handled less. When buying trees from a garden centre, they're lifted, packaged, transported and handled by customers, which can cause unwanted damage. Bare root trees are often kept in the ground at a nursery until purchased.
Often cheaper than a garden centre Buying directly from a grower rather than a retailer is often cheaper. The reason for this is there are fewer costs involved with packaging, storage and other overheads associated with garden centres.
Transport Transporting trees can be a challenging task especially larger, more mature trees. Often garden centres will only offer smaller plants for this reason. Buying online enables you to buy larger trees and have them shipped straight to your door.
Less wasteful packaging Buying trees online allows consumers to reduce wasteful packaging materials and the energy used to produce them.
