Consider writing a "take scions" clause into the sale agreement.  When  
I was shopping for houses one of the ones I looked at had a clause to  
allow the seller to take small selections of her (extensive) hosta  
collection at whatever time of year it's best to divide hostas.  I  
didn't buy the house, but the clause was not a problem for me, and my  
guess is that it wasn't a problem for other potential buyer.
