I have been numerous types of ornamental grasses for years, all hardy
to zone 5. I would like to find out how to sell them. If anyone has any
thoughts please let me know. I could sell in many forms from small to
specimen size.I'm getting overgrown here in southern Indiana. Any info
would be helpful. I have tried to grow in containers, but this is too
much work for my older body.
Many folks seem to be able to sell plants through Ebay. Possibly craigslist.
If you cannot or do not want to ship, you specify local pickup only. Of
course, that would drastically limit your customer base.
If you want to trade for other ornamentals, you might join
www.davesgarden.com . They have a trading system.
One of my neighbours has a table of plants for sale by her front gate,
all year round.
You could also ask local gardencentres and places that sell plants,
if they want to buy some of yours. I grew a whole load of perennial
plants last autumn and spring, for sale this summer, and sold hundreds
of pounds worth in two days. All I did was paint a "plants for sale"
sign and put it where it could be seen from the gate; and for my own
convenience I priced all the plants at a single price regardless of
type or size.

are rarely sold in 4" pots. I build benches and divide the grasses
now, pot them up and let them sit in an unheated greenhouse over
winter. Come spring, they start to grow and I bring them to the
