Stock Plants and Growing in Containers

(Before It's News)

Stock plants, rooted cuttings, cuttings, that’s my business.

Up against the donkey fence, I have planted several stock plants to take cuttings from. They are my gold mine. I have Anabelle Hydrangea and Gold Flame Spirea among many others. The Gold Flame Spirea is just a phenomenal plant. It is easy to propagate and it sells like crazy. You can grow it in a bed or in containers.

You can see the difference in profit between growing several hundred plants in a bed or a thousand plants in containers in basically the same amount of space.  Like I said, it is easier to sell 10 plants at $5.97 than one at $39.00 or more.

Of all the plants I have, I am running very low on Gold Mound Spirea.  The members in the Backyard Growers Business Center sold out of every Gold Mound Spirea plant and I couldn’t buy any more.  Good for them!

Watch this movie me and Duston made explaining the math of growing plants.
