My Backyard Nursery Is Growing

Every day I try to do something to grow my business. Up until now I've been ordering stock plants from fellow growers from which I can make more plants in the future. These plants are babies that need to be potted up or planted in the ground. Mine go into pots to be nurtured to selling size. I should be able to start some of my own babies before they're sold to perpetuate the supply. So far I have amassed over 400 pots of plants.

I wish I had an outlet too. I have so much in my garden that can be multiplied into hundreds of saleable plants. But here there are no takers. Happy for you that you will know your plants will be sold. I see great progress from the image you have uploaded. Good Luck with your efforts.

How will you start babies from them? Will you take cuttings? Good luck with the business.

Yes. I take lots of cuttings. Some make it, some don't. I also grow from seed and do divisions.

Yes, I do. I've followed his newsletter for years. He got me started with making babies from plants I've grown. Now I'm actually going to make it my retirement business.

That's great. So many people with gardens and a nice nursery is a great idea. I wouldn't mind those nurseries that are in the movies. I hope your nursery plants continue to prosper.
