Bulk Purchasing With Members involved 
        What is the point of having a lot of people with similar purchasing needs if bulk purchases benefiting members is ignored?
As a club we should be getting input from members on what we could order in a bulk purchase.

There are pros and cons of a bulk purchase.
If you request it, you should be expected to buy it.
 The plant is being ordered direct from the growing nursery, so quality should be better and less chance of plant illnesses & weeds compared to someone selling out of their back yard.
Cost is typically lower than nursery's since no markup involved.
Orders usually have to be placed 8 to 12 months before delivery, and availability is not guaranteed ( ordering earlier ensures best availability.
Variety's generally more than what in Nursery.
Less chance of incorrect plant variety due to switched tags like in the store.
