Members of the Trade Never Pay Retail Prices for Plants, Wholesale Rooted Cuttings or Liners.
What most people don’t realize is that as a member of the trade, nurseryman, landscaper, garden center, or Backyard Grower, you are entitled to buy plants on the wholesale market. And the prices are remarkably lower, for a lot of reasons. Crazy low really.
How Not to Be Intimidated or Shunned by Wholesale Growers.
Shunned? Are you serious Mike?
Yeah, I am. It’s actually pretty difficult to buy from many wholesale nurseries because, and as I explain this I want you to think about why they act the way they do. (incomplete sentence I know. Sorry.) Wholesale growers are used to picking up the phone, pen in hand, prepared to start writing down the plants that the customer wants to order. On the wholesale market ordering plants is a lot like ordering a pizza for you and I except, the dollar amounts are staggering!
When wholesale buyers order plants they almost always place orders for one thousand dollars or more, sometimes many thousands of dollars. So when you and I call up and want to spend, maybe, a few hundred dollars. They almost can’t be bothered. Years ago one nursery told me that if I couldn’t spend at least $50,000 per year with them they really didn’t want my business. They just weren’t really looking for small customers like me.
The One and Only Place Where You Can Get Deeply Discounted, Wholesale Prices and are Not Expected to Spend Thousands of Dollars at One Time.
For those that have my Backyard Growing System, or have even read The Sales Page for My Backyard Growing System you know that I mention This Secret Place Where Backyard Growers Can Buy and Sell Plants at Wholesale Prices.
It’s true, there is such a place and it really is highly secret, very few people know about it, but the plant prices inside are crazy low! I’ll give you some examples. But before I do, you should know that many of the Backyard Growers that routinely sell plants in there have sold tens of thousands of dollars worth without leaving home and without having to deal with any customers face to face. They just box up the plants and mail them to the customers. Yes, mail. Most of the plants are shipped by priority mail. Very, very simple business to be in.

Can You Buy these Plants at these Prices?
You can, but this is a resource that I only share with those who have purchased my Backyard Growing System. My System comes with a wholesale directory of all the places that I buy plants from, but the beauty of this Secret Place is that it was designed and built around really small growers like you and I. In most cases you only have to buy 5 or 10 of each plant to get these crazy low prices. Interested? Become a Backyard Grower.
You Cannot Order these Plants from Me. They are Not My Plants.
Many of my customers buy plants like these, pot them up and sell them for a lot more than they paid for them. Then they do it again, and again and again. But as they do, they also take cuttings from the plants so they never have to buy them again, they can grow all they want from the cuttings that they took.
