This is the part that people don’t understand about growing and selling small plants from home.
If a stay at home mom who home schools her children can do this successfully then just about anybody can do it.
Nurseries buy more small plants than anybody. They have to, they can’t possibly “make” all of the plants that they need to keep up with the demand for small plants.
And lately, I’m having more and more difficulty finding the plants that I need for my nursery because, no matter what anybody tells you, the market is improving dramatically and the demand for plants is getting very intense.
A lot of plants are in short supply.

I need plants! I have a lot of plants in my nursery, but I need more! I have an open space and it needs to be filled. So I went on the hunt for plants.
And the first place that I always look for plants is from my customers, people that have bought my system and now have plants to sell. I buy a lot from my customers!
Thousands and thousands of dollars worth of plants I’ve purchased from my customers.
Tracy M. from Pennsylvania had exactly what I was looking for, so I placed an order with her online.
And almost immediately I got this message back from her . . .
I am so very honored to see the order that you placed on my ad! I noticed it right before we were heading off to church this morning and said to my husband “Oh My Gosh! Listen to this! Mike McGroarty placed an order with me for plants!!!” LOL
I put this ad up 5 days ago and the plants have gone so fast that I am not completely sure that I have left what you requested in your order. At this point, I need to go out and make a few more precise “counts”. Fifteen orders are going out tomorrow morning– if I can get them all done– along with handling the kids and the puppies and the peeps… and everything else around here.
Puppies, Peeps, Kids, and Plants! She’s a busy lady.
I so appreciate the opportunity, through your Small Plants, Big Profits from Home Program, to make extra money working with plants while still being able to be a stay-at-home mom. As well as a homeschooling, mom. My plate is full, and I love it!!!
Thank-you! Thank-you! Thank-you!
So… about the plant order. Let me do some figuring and I will get back to you ASAP to confirm.
When I first read this message from Tracy I wasn’t disappointed that she might not be able to fill my order, I was excited for her! 15 orders to ship in one day, from her house in Pennsylvania!
I absolutely love that because I know what I do is making a difference in her life. It might not be a big difference, but very few of these orders are less than $25.00 and many of them go into the hundreds of dollars.
That’s why I do what I do. I love to know that people are bringing in money because of what I’ve taught them.
This business is not difficult, it’s not complicated, it’s pretty simple. Grow small plants, shake them out bare root, put them in a Priority Mail Box that you get free from the post office, and ship them to your eager customers who are delighted to receive them!
If you’ve Read My Story you know that plants have been an extremely important part of my life and they still are today.

Mike, you may have done this before and I missed it. Would you explain the best procedure to ship bare root plants? That is, how you package them, approximate cost of shipping, etc.

Hi Mike, I am really broke right now and i cynically scrolled to the bottom or your sales page only to find to my delight that your product is only $7! looking forward to implementing it right away and sharing my results. Thank you!
I am from Central PA. If couild email me I would like to find out what is all necessary to start selling from home. I would like to know what I need from the State, if anything.
All of your questions are answered in detail in my system. I give away a ton of information online, but the one thing that I can’t give away is the one product that I sell that helps to compensate for the tens of thousands of hours I devote to these websites. http://freeplants.com/wanted.htm

I wish, our authorities would be more relaxed like yours, as I can not sell plants from my home, unless I have a registered business in a designated location. It is against the law, to run a business in a residential area.

I love it when parents home school and I want to congratulate her for what she
is doing both for her kids and her busiiness. I think she is teaching her kids
to be ndependent and showing them the value of a good work ethic.
One suggestion though, it is people who not people that. Other than that she
gets an A plus.
I agree, Tracy deserves congratulations. They typo stuff? Ahhhh. That’s just me.
I have been trying to buy your Small plants for big profit,with no luck…
Every time I try to use my Visa-PrePayed credit card your system regects my card details.
Mike could you please try to find out where the problems is,as I am very happy to buy your system,
but every time I try I am regected.As it is a prepayed credit card, there is allways plenty of money on the card.
Desperetly wating for your replay
