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...
