Jeez I don’t think I need these that badly. Shipping can’t have gotten that bad has it?
That doesn’t include handling fee of 5:00
4 scions shipped for $33? Lol
try it here http://maplevalleyorchards.com/, i was able to buy the scion there 2 times cheaper
Boy, I guess I’m in the wrong business!
Ordered 17 scions from Maple valley, shipping charge was only 12 dollars.
Ordered 18 scions from 39th Parallel, shipping charge was only 10 dollars.
Ordered 35 two year old bare root plants from Indiana Berry…shipping $34.00
I was ok with that.
If that doesn’t include handling shipping is 38 dollars. Did a billionaire buy cummins trying to get his money back?
Could it be a error on the website? I think this is the first year they have offered scionwood. Maybe they don’t have the small scionwood shipping containers entered in the system correctly.
Interesting math they are doing these days on everything it seems
Mroots idea makes more sense, maybe send em an email
I got a plum tree and it was wrong variety so they gave a credit.
That was an email from them showing my cost
I’d email or call them and see what they say. If not i’d run away.
I would email them to verify. I’ve got an order in to them for 125 rootstocks and the shipping and handling is $27.
First… I love Cummins.
However, the $5 premium for buying a single scion was insulting. I walked away.
I think it is insulting for you to expect one of their employees to cut, prepare, pack and ship a single scion for less than 5 dollars.
In @LTCider’s defense, it’s kind of a play on words and might push someone away but they also might return, but I agree with you, Paul/ribs1. Cummins calls it Handling
I ordered 19 two year old bare root plants and 50 asparagus crowns from Indiana Berry and shipping was 35.01. I ordered 7 bare root plants from Burnt Ridge and shipping was 28.00. My Ison’s order was 2 trees and 1 shrub (bareroot), shipping was 19.95. Gurnery’s was 2 trees and 3 shrubs (bareroot) and shipping was 21.99. Edible landscaping was expensive to me for what it was (4) 2inch pots and (1) 3/4gallon shrubs for 27.69. Not a whole lot you can do about shipping costs if you don’t live near a nursery that sells the plants that you want.
(Edit to say, I didn’t mean to direct this to you @RichardRoundTree I was trying to make a general reply.)
https://39thparallel.com/ has a ton of cheap scion wood. I believe the owner posts on here. I’d recommend them if you’re looking for pears or apples.
