I plan on making some money with my SFG

Post  Josh on 9/9/2012, 1:49 pm

I have been using a 3 x 6 SFG for rooting cuttings, the Mel's Mix that I made is great for the cuttings to root in. I have been taking cuttings and divisions from my SFG herb garden, and from the flowers.

I've potted some of them up. In Feb. I will take them to the local herb and garden show and sell them. I may have a booth at the local Oct. Fest and sell some there also.

i could have had a booth at the Farmers Market, but I was busy on the days they had it, maybe next year.

I plan on borrowing my Mom's little green house to put the plants in till Feb. get's here, and I think I'll start some plants from seeds to sell also.

The herbs should sell easy at the herb and garden show, I made small herb hanging baskets, each has 3 herbs in it.

All the plants cost me nothing since I divided them or rooted them from cuttings. Some of the pots I have collected from people who save them for me.

Brilliant!!! and Lookin' good!


40 years a gardener and going strong with SFG.

There are certain pursuits which, if not wholly poetic and true, do at least suggest a nobler and finer relation to nature than we know. The keeping of bees, for instance. ~ Henry David Thoreau


Outlander is outstanding!
