You can actually bid on fresh-cut flowers right there on eBay. A few examples:
100 Ecuadorian roses for $100 (plus $20 FedEx charges)–that’s the Buy It Now price, but who knows, maybe you could bid and get them for less.
Fresh leis from Hawaii at the Buy It Now price of $10, plus $12 shipping.
Wedding flowers, in this case meaning 220 stems of orchids and calla lilies, for the Buy-It-Now price of $479, also straight from Ecuador.
So this, as always, gets me wondering what else is for sale in eBay’s gardening section.
An entire greenhouse of orchids, over 4000 plants in all, with a starting bid of $19,000.
A complete garden railroad for $2500. It occurs to me that we don’t talk nearly enough about garden railroads here at GardenRant.
A Frank Lloyd Wright style planter for $1350.
55 gallons of Round-Up for $1495.
Actual plants? How about a bonsai for $1350?
Or, for $1250, a little Hoodia cactus?
And finally–1000 daylily bulbs (called tiger lilies here) for $499?
Anyone? Going, going, gone…Posted by Amy Stewart on July 17, 2008 at 5:43 am, in the category Taking Your Gardening Dollar.
