You right, oversea's orders can be complicated. The only uncertainity though, comes from the costs of shipping to Canada cause it depends on how many people order and how much is ordered. For me it worth the time doing/organizing it for the variety and price of the plants. Esp that you can't get certain ones from the Canadian suppliers or their oversea's suppliers. I'm personally looking a N. villosa and the price of the highland N. truncata ($24CAD vs $70 at HB), among others too. Bottom line, I'd be doing an order for myself anyways so I just opened it up
I think with last years Wistuba order, you could expect the extra costs to be around the same as your plants. For those that did that order, how much more was the shipping compared to the plants?
Prmills, the overseas shipping wasn't too bad on the Wistuba order. Because there were eleven of us in on it, it came out to $15.00 CAD, apiece. I am guessing that your shipping from CZ, depending upon the size of the order of course, will be between 45 and 55 Euro. But that is if it is a big order. For a smaller order, between 35 and 45 Euro. Not too bad if it is divided up amongst a few people.
For those thinking budget like me, here's a possible look at it (guessing of course). If an order size of 300EUR (plants only) goes in, there would be about 100EUR on top of that to get them to Canada, plus another $15CAD (guessing) for shipping from me. More plants = cheaper over all. There's about 150EUR worth of plants on the order list so far.
