I know there are some odd things for sale, but this one is one of the strangest things I've seen on ebay!

I'd buy it - just a shame it's in NSW and I have no backyard :D !!!!! Plus I'd probably end up killing them all

Actually TheE, after going through the photos there's some pretty good material among those we can see. When you take in to account the cost of the pots etc, it's not too bad a deal. I don't agree with 'Experience not necessary, tuition can be arranged' though. Someone without any experience would most likely end up with a lot of empty pots and a rather large pile of firewood - unless the 'tuition' was spread over a fair amount of time. The asking price is reasonable, and if someone interested in starting a collection had the money it would give them an 'instant' collection of trees. Be interesting to see if someone ends up buying it.
