    Personally, I would rather pay now with the EUR/USD exchange rates the way they are.
    AUD/USD (Austrailia) was better last year though. Better if you were paying with dollars that is.

    Of course, no one can predict the future. But I wouldn't be surprised if EUR/USD has a correction in the coming months after all of this Greece mess clears up. Then again, perhaps it is just the tip of the iceberg. Who knows... not me.

    and if the euro to dollar changes in the next few months , after you place an order, do they charge the new rate, or the rate from when you placed the order??
    could it end up costing more than first advertised.

    if you use credit card its the rate at the time the card is actually billed, if you use paypal then its when you complete the paypal transaction

    if you want todays rate use paypal... but if your order has to be cancelled due to lack of stock, you will be refunded via paypal at a future date and future exchange rate (been there and done that with AW) so you can actually lose a little money and not have the plant

    caveat, ordering now does not hold the plant for you

    Jimmy,

    youre stressing yourself out mate, do it and be done with it
    first time is the hardest, when you have that new hamata in your hand you will have that warm and fuzzy feelin inside

    Av, What do you mean by, "ordering now does not hold the plant for you"?

    You order a plant during the off season that shows in stock.... but when it comes spring and shipments to North America resume, it may no longer be in stock.
    So you end up with a refund.

    Not a biggie really and totally understandable if you think about it, but just a fact of life to be aware of when ordering off season.

    First and second hand experience talking

    Jimmy,

    Even if your current order falls through, just remember to keep your eyes open.

    There should be plenty of opportunities to purchase hamatas this season. I bought 2 last season and was very close to buying a 3rd. I am really kicking myself for not getting the seedgrown hamata AV and others are showing off. I really hope there are more available this year.
