Free Backyard Growing System

Last updated : 4 September 2012

I am giving away three copies of my Brand New Backyard Growing System!

Here’s the deal.  Right now my Backyard Growing System is not available, I’ve taken it off the market.  Because . . . Duston and I have been working on a completely new and revised edition of the Backyard Growing System and the new version will not be available until early September.

So while we are all waiting for the new products to be completed I’ve decided to give away the first three copies that we produce.  The winners (three winners!) will be randomly selected from the comments made to this post.  So if you’d like to be considered for this give away, post a comment below.

Quick and Easy Way to Make Money at Home Growing Plants

The new system will be called “Small Plants, Big Profits from Home”.  This will be a combination of physical and digital products.  The physical products are a brand new book that I wrote this summer, “Small Plants, Big Profits from Home” and a two DVD set that includes my Backyard Nursery DVD as well as a new  DVD called “Plant Propagation Madness”.

The book and new DVD are brand spanking new, never been sold before.

Also included will be an “Advanced Online Training Course”, the “Secret Directory of Wholesale Suppliers” and the digital report “The Inside Secrets of the Rooting Cutting Business”.

All good stuff!

So while Duston (my son) and I tie up the lose ends of getting this product ready and wait for the first shipment of books from the publisher, jump in here and post a comment!

    So far I have found much of the information useful.

    My wife and I are just getting started in the plant business for some extra retirement income.

    The website listed isn’t mine, it is one I frequent. The page wouldn’t let me proceed without entering a valid URL.


  2. Anna Draper says

    Can’t wait to see the new version! I’m moving to a place with 5 acres from an apartment with a tiny backyard. Looking forward to get going on my own backyard nursery.

  3. Dana S. says

    I’d love to win the set! My husband is disabled but I think he’d be able to do this if he could get himself mentally prepared. Thanks for all you do!


  4. Judy S says

    I would love to be considered for your drawing. I have been receiving your posts for a couple of years and hope to one day be able to start my own small plant business. Thanks!

  5. karen clark says

    Am just starting gardening as full time gardener. I need all the help I can get. Love this website and email news. Pls keep ’em coming.

  6. Greg Rathman says

    I planted 100 bare root black cherry trees. The deer seem to like the leaves very well. Can I use the leaves in a salad before the deer get to the rest?

  7. Glynnda Johnson says

    I’ve found a rehab center that doesn’t have a garden…horticulture therapy is my field and I’d love to get them started on a program. (Hands raised and emphatic !!/ Pick me ! Pick me !!

      I have really enjoyed your videos and have tinkered with your propagation ideas. I have always wanted to order your program, but my income has markedly dwindled. I would love a copy of your new program as I am falling in love with gardening. Thanks Mike for your ongoing inspiration!

    • LM says

      I would love a copy. My husband has serious heart trouble and no pension. My 85 year old mom, with dementia and health issues is now living with us so I can care for her as well. I work a full time job on top of all. I need a way to stay home but also support my family.

    • Shirley says

      I will be utilizing your Backyard Growing System as soon as I move from Galveston, Texas to Hot Springs, Arkansas. I will be buying some nice 1/2 acre lots with fantastic soil and super clean air & lakes. It will be ideal for growing Japanese Maples, Dogwoods, Cherry trees, Magnolias,Bamboo, grapes and so much more. I look forward to working with you in the near future.
      My move is scheduled for the 1st week of November 2012 Best of Luck to everyone!!

    • says

      I love your emails and videos. Like you, I get a giant thrill out of taking cuttings and watching them turn into new plants. It is exciting to know you are giving away 3 of your newbies, and so thanks a lot, even if I’m not one of the lucky winners.

    • Doug Koss says

      Thanks for the opportunity Mike. I am disabled and am mot taking any money from the outside at all. I am trying to increase all my growing for my needs and to give to others that need food during these tuff times.

    • Don Sutherland says

      Thanks Mike

    • Barbara S. Rives says

      Please consider me as a recipient of one of the three copies. After retiring from teaching I middle school, college mathematics, and writing grants for teacher I service programs, I fell “in love” with cacti and other succulents and have 100s of plants from different families, genera and species. Now, I propagate succulents from “around the world.”. I enjoy your column and have saved every one received.

      Congratulations on your new book and DVDs. I look forward to reading it and watching the DVDs when they are released.

      Thank you for considering me for one set of the materials.

I look forward to all the hints tips and tricks, but I really feel like we are neighbors, I always feel like I am getting a personal e-mail, I always pass my e-mail onto my sister, who works full time and doesn’t have much gardening time because she too shares my enthusiasm about the e-mails. She’s Pam, with a husband named Mike!!Anyway, I’ll keep my fingers and toes crossed in the mean time! Here in ALABAMA

    • Milt M. says

      Respectfully, Dianne

    • Kathy says

      HI MIke,

      I have been following your emails and posts for a couple years now and would appreciate putting my hat in the ring for the backyard growing system.

      Thanks very much!

    • RIch Minton says

      I’ve just retired and now may have both the time and having just moved recently, may have the space to do your system! And having just retired I’m definitely in need of some replacement income. By the way, the instructions for downloading your free book (right click mouse and select Save) does not work with Firefox browser. Given all the problems with Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 9, lots of us are not using IE any more, although when it didn’t work on Firefox, I used IE to download the book. Thanks again for all your great help.

    • Bruce Ames says

      As I transition form my business to staying home I look forward to these products. I have a large garden (grew up on a farm) but have never done propagation. Thank you for your weekly tips.

    • Julie says

      I would sooo love to start a new career. I love your emails and website and look forward to this new product. Looks like you had a great Shindig!

    • Della says

      I am so excited! My husband just retired and now we will have time to start our “Backyard Garden”. I would love to get your new information, as I have been following you for a while now, and really have learned a lot. Thanks

    • M Scandore says

      Thanks Mike for all your great ideas. I am just starting my backyard nursery. Hoping to help others with the profits I make.
      All my profits are going to be donated to a few people in need and if I have anything left I’d like to take my grandkids on a Disney Cruise. I’m setting our goals high.

    • Jan says

      Mike, I would love to have one, but can’t afford one just yet…unemployed with no compensation. I never win anything, but it is sure worth trying. Thanks for all the info you so kindly pass along for free. I love your story. You have my respect for keeping your eye on the ball. People like you deserve success.

    • Sunny Smith says

      Wow! I want to throw my scarf into the ring! You are my Guru of the Garden. I really, really need to win something that will keep all these Sons, Grandsons, and Nephews busy working.
      With all 6 of them over 6’3″ and a couple at 6’7″ and still growing, I need all the help I can get! Granny Sun Smith

    • Jim V says

      One day on the web I came across a gardener named Mike
      He was showing people how to make money doing what they like

      He knows all about plants and flowers
      And gives you help that empowers

      Because he is giving away his gardening system for free
      I hope he likes this poem and makes me one of the lucky three

    • Norman L. Chandler says

      Thanks Mike for the wonderful e-mails and videos. I have learned a lot about gardening from you. Therefor I am throwing my hat in the ring.

    • Judy Haddock says

      Mike, I have used your suggestion to produce rose bushes from limbs. It worked even for me. It is really a fool-proof method of growing what you love from the rose bushes most loved. Thank you. Please let me know the cost of the new book. I just know it is filled with many many more tips that will make me a better gardener and landscaper. I want my large yard to be a remarkable exercise in beautiful plants and bushes.
      Thanks Mike for your advise.

      Thoroughly enjoy your website and articles. Have tried to pass them along to my brothers as well. Keep up the great work! How much will you be selling the new system for?

    • Chadi Chenekdji says

      Your articles and videos are always easy to follow. I always wanted to discover the art of starting small plants but always had trouble. I would like to see your product and what you have to offer.

    • April says

      I would like to be considered in the drawing for the free backyard growing system. I read each of your e-mails and try to follow them. Not much time to do the nursery stuff and work, but the information that I have received has been very valuable.


    • Karen Mulcahy says

      I’ve enjoyed following your emails for sometime and have thought of raising native plants. My hat is in!

    • says

      I have been learning gardening for a few years after becoming disabled and no longer able to work. It keeps me active and productive from my wheelchair. I happened upon your YouTube site and subscribed ASAP. I have been trying to clone an olive tree now all summer and could really use a book like yours. Living on S.S.I. since I did not work my entire life I get the minimum in funds each month. A book like this would bring food to our table as well as productivity from my end. Wish me luck!

    • Cheri says

      It just so happens that August 19th, when you gave us all a chance to be a part of your drawing, was my birthday:) I have a very slowwwww dial-up connection so I didn’t have time to come out of my garden to catch up on my emails until now. Thx for giving us all a chance to be in your drawing; please count me in. (hope the drawing isn’t over)

    • dexter tracy says

      Hi Mike ,I was really inspired by your newsletter when i started a small landscaping business about 7 years ago.I never truly used your tips and techniques regarding propagation as family needs demanded my full involvement. Im back! I love your open examples of home gardening possibilities and i have the time,materials,and desire to give a small production go of it. Please consider me in your valued offer of a complimentary gift of your new system. Thank You, Dexter Tracy
