Wow! That’s all I can say.
We have so many fun and exciting things happening in Our Members Area right now and we are accepting new members, but only for a short time.
Look at this Purple Ghost Japanese Maple. Would you like one? Two or Three?
When I posted these photos a few weeks back people went crazy and wanted to know where to buy one. These things are really rare and really hard to find. Often selling for $200 or more. But right now we have a member that is offering all kinds of really rare, really unique Japanese maples in Our Buy/Sell Area with prices from $8.00 up to about $15.00. That’s it! Can you believe that?
How about this beauty? Yesterday in his ad I saw some Virdis Japanese maples which are exactly like this ‘Waterfall’. Beautiful green leaves all summer, burnt orange in the fall. $15.00 is what he was asking. That’s it!
This member, he tells me that he will be posting more ads for weeks and weeks to come. Then come fall and winter lots and lots of other ads start appearing for Japanese Red Maples, usually around $2.00 to $3.00 each.
Would you like to Try Your Hand at Grafting Japanese Maples? Get this . . .
In Our Members Area not only can you buy Japanese maples that are perfect for grafting root stock, but you can also buy scion wood of unique and interesting varieties. A scion is really just a cutting taken from a rare Japanese maple, then you graft that scion onto a Japanese maple root stock. It’s fun, it’s exciting and it’s a great way to get beautiful Japanese maples and other plants for just a few dollars each.

Hanging out with the grand-kids we stumbled onto this beautiful hydrangea and I have no idea what it is. But I know that Our Members Will Know and more than likely one or more of them will have some for sale.
How much would you be willing to pay for this beautiful plant? Me? I know that once I get this identified I’ll be able to find them for around $2.00 each, maybe $2.50 each. Mike! What if it’s patented?
Here’s the deal with patented plants.
If this beautiful Hydrangea is not patented then I’ll buy 200 of them, pot them up and start taking cuttings from them. If it turns out that it is patented then I’ll buy 200 of them, pay the royalty, buy the required tags and I’ll just pot and sell them but not propagate them. In any case, I’m sure I can get these for less $2.50 each.
That’s The Beauty of Being a Member of our Backyard Growers Business Center. We do not pay retail price for plants. We always buy them wholesale and we have sources all over the country. Including many of our own members.
If You Join Right Now you can attend our Annual Backyard Growers Shindig. It’s coming up in a few weeks and it is a blast! A bunch of us get together to discuss plants, growing plants, propagating plants and selling plants! We have great food, great fun and life long friendships are made. I’m not kidding about that. We have created so many life long friendships among like minded people it’s amazing.
And get this! I have a couple more events planned for this year that I haven’t even told the members about. I’d like to take a bunch of members on a tour of two or more wholesale nursery operations. I have a lot of friends in this industry and I’m going to twist some arms and get them to pull back the covers and show us what they do, how they do it, and why. That’s coming up!
We are also planning an event that likely will be called “Liner Fest 2017”. This is an event where members can get together and stock up on beautiful liners. A rooted cutting is exactly as it sounds, a cutting, pretty much a stick, with some leaves and roots on the bottom. A liner is a rooted cutting that has been grown out for one growing season. It is starting to branch out and has a much heavier root system than a rooted cutting. Liners usually sell for $1.50 to $2.00 each.
This is a great way to pick up plants that you can sell immediately and in Our Members Discussion Area you will discover how our members sell hundreds of dollars worth of plants and thousands of dollars worth of plants.
