But setting up a whole shopping cart site just for local sales is a lot of work (I’ve done it), you might be better off just attending local gardening events and holding a plant sale.

Do people get this or would it be worthwhile to include a small bit of copy explaining: "Every plant is unique therefore yours will be different from the one photographed" or something better but to the same effect?

It all depends on your expectation of what a website is or does. If you are looking for the website itself to be the mechanism for making money... yes, it is FAR more complicated and FAR more expensive to put in the time to make it work. If your website is merely a way to post your hours and contact information where it can't be taken down, then it is simple. If you have a business and create the website to make it easier for customers to purchase things or order ahead, it can be more complicated, but still there are many pre-built online stores that you merely fill in your details and stock and you can leave the look and feel default. You mentioned using the website to prove your tax rate. How much money did you save? Many simple websites can be hosted for about $5 a month. If you saved a few hundred a year in taxes... I'd say it was well worth it.
