(Before It's News)

Start your own garden club at work!

It’s easy.  Just find other people that share your interest in gardening and invite them into your club.  Create a group on Facebook where you can share your interests and ideas.  Trade plants, trade seeds, share landscaping ideas, seed growing tips, cutting growing tips.

Bring your group to Mike’s Plant Farm here in Perry for a “behind the scenes” tour.  We’ll show you everything, how we propagate our plants, our potting system, how we control weeds in our plants and in our gardens around the nursery.

We have no secrets here at Mike’s Plant Farm!  I’ll even tell you how much each of the girls weigh.  Just kidding, just kidding!  I have no idea how much they weigh but if they see this I’ll probably find out.

When you set up your garden club don’t use the name of the company that you work for.  That’s probably not a cool thing to do.  If you promote it at work let your boss know up front what you are doing just to make sure that’s not a problem.

Tell ya what.  If you give your club members membership cards you can negotiate discount for club members at local businesses that are gardening related.  Then you can leverage that and shame other vendors into doing the same.  How about that?

Anyway, start forming your garden club today.

I’ll help you with interesting and timely articles and “how to” information that you can share with your members.  In just a few days I’m going to write an Article about Growing Perennials from Seed that you can share with your members if you like.

Be sure to join our Email list at the top right corner of this page.  We regularly send out really good and timely garden related information that you can share with club members.

Just let me know what you need and I’m here to help.
