Selling the plants that you grow is actually quite easy because people love plants. They love to buy them, they love to plant them and they love looking at them.
How do I know this?
1. I am one of those plant buying, plant loving crazy people. I love the plants in my yard.
2. I sell plants to people that love them and they tell me how much they enjoy the plants and how happy they are to be able to buy plants from me.
You can sell plants online, you can sell plants from home, you can sell plants at farmers markets and flea markets. You can sell plants at plant parties.
Right now, as I am writing this blog post I am right in the middle of a Sunday of Selling Plants. Actually this is my “First Ever Plant Sale” at this location. I started this nursery two years and this weekend is the very first time that we’ve sold plants from Mike’s Plant Farm.

Let’s see, how is this plant sale going so far. Friday we sold $2,932.90 worth of plants and yesterday we sold $2,443.05 worth of plants.
So here’s the deal. This is the part that you need to understand. I just sold over $5,000 worth of plants in two days. What do you suppose I am going to do with that money? I am going to buy more plants with a lot of it, I promise you that!
But Mike, you have a nursery, you grow your own plants, why would you buy plants from somebody else? Because that’s what I do. That’s what all growers do. They grow plants, but they also buy a lot of plants. If I buy a plant today for 90 cents and can sell that plant in a year or so for $4.97 or more, why wouldn’t I want to do that?
Sure I grow a lot of plants, but to shorten the cycle for the time of production I do both. I root my own cuttings, tens of thousands of them, and I also buy thousands of dollars worth of plants from others.
With my “Small Plants, Big Profits from Home” system show you how to connect with wholesale buyers who buy plants on a daily basis. Unlike retail customers wholesale buyers spend thousands if not tens of thousands of dollars on plants every year.
