Just as you buy vegetables, meat or even clothes, you always have to scrutinize the product. That is why even if you are just going to buy trees you have to look for the best. We have to look at the important characteristics carefully and it doesn’t matter if it takes time, rushing never did any good to anybody. Decisions should be thought about carefully, not just the amount to be spent but the quality that you’ll be getting.
First off to remember before buying is to ask yourself how much you can afford? Set the price you want, so that when the time comes if there is a chance that you can haggles with the seller then you can tell him/her what you want. Don’t buy when it’s greater than your budget. You also have to distinguish whether you’re buying for profit or for its uses. If it’s for profit you need to be sure that the amount you spend will return back to you in a certain amount of time. If it’s for your personal use than regardless just be sure that what you spend will be worth it.
Secondly, get opinions from people you know who have also thought of buying Cinnamon trees or its seeds. Ask what types would be best and what to look for. Usually good Cinnamon plants have a spicy smell and thick reddish brown bark. You can also ask some of the sellers especially those who have been selling for many years.
Third, get yourself ready for a shopping spree. The internet also provides lots of websites where you can buy online, but it’s harder to know the quality of the trees or seeds. You also have to be aware of scams. They can sell you pest ridden products. Fumigated Cinnamon trees are also not a good choice; naturally grown cinnamon trees are better.
Buying cinnamon trees or seeds are like buying dogs. They have life and you have to take care of it. If they die than what you spent would have been a waste. After purchasing the product, you will have to take care of it. You are now responsible with the decision you made.
