BUYING AND SELLING CUT FLOWERS AND PLANTS

Childe Hassam painting







I was just wondering if any of you ever sell your flowers or plants. I love farmer's markets and I recall seeing quite a few buckets with fresh flowers in them at the stalls the last time I was there. They were mainly selling garden roses, hydrangeas, phlox, salvias and filler type flowers. One girl told me she just sells whatever is in bloom at the time and usually sells in bunches. I would think arrangements would be good for those who are all thumbs at arranging flowers. That would be me. A friend once ask me, after seeing my latest endeavor, how far back I was standing when I threw that one together. LOL I've never sold any but I have bought them, especially Sunflowers and zinnias.

I will buy plants anywhere. My confederate roses were bought at a garage sale!. I have bought at library sales, books and plants, great combination. Sometimes they have them at our local flea market. If you look in the newspaper under plants in the classified, there are usually some there. My local recycle group on the web, offers plants all the time. I'll put a link to the freecycle group at the bottom of the post, in case you are not familiar with it...just type in your town...

I have seen people selling plants and shrubs out of the back of pickup trucks. Plants are getting so expensive. Even bulbs are way up in price. But there are cheaper places to buy if we just keep our eyes open. If you know of other places I haven't thought of, please let us know. Here is a link to a place to get some free plants and do a good deed at the same time. Also the link to the freecycle site...

I love buying plants from people's yard sales and from farmers markets.
Show me a cheap plant and I'll buy it. I give a lot of my bulbs away and I trade and people give me wayward plants all the time because they know I'm into gardening. What fun.

The Markets in Germay were full of flowers and plants! It was a wonderful thing to just stroll the markets to see the beauty!

I've never sold plants but I think it's a good idea. I have seen them in markets and they always look so pretty.

I know next year I will be doing a lot of mine from seed the plants this year were outrageous. I've not seen any individuals selling plants only at nursery's, Lowe's, Home Depot, Walmart. Hmmm...that wouldn't be a bad thing to get into. Thanks for stopping by my blog and good luck with your dh filling that dishwasher I just wish I could teach mine to close the cabinet door after he opens it or put the toilet seat down. Take Care :)

A nearby farmers' Market has two or three vendors who sell cut flowers...One guys flowers looks like he buys and resells them...but the other two are their garden grown cut flowers! Bouquets of wonderful zinnias, cosmos, dills, celosias...so many more. I did treat myself to two bouquets last week! The dill smells delicious still!
