I hadn’t planned to use this blog for selling my wares but have had a few emails asking about some of my plant starts. I have quite a few Echeveria Snow White starts in 4″ pots available. These starts will have pups by this summer so if you have patience you can have a whole grove of these to sell by this late summer and every year after. I am selling sell these starts here for $5 plus shipping . The 6″, some with pups already are $10 plus shipping.
I started with one of these years ago and now sell 60 to 75 a year for $3.50 and $7.00 at the market. These Echeveria get beautiful yellow flowers on 6″ stems several times in the summer and into the fall. These plants are frost tolerant but I recommend to my customers that they take them indoors for the winter.
Below are the Sedun Ogon. Same pricing. with these 4 inch you will be able to start around 25 plants this year. You simply break off a few short branches and stick them on top of some 4″ pots and let them go. When they get leggy you cut them back to the pot and plant up all of your cuttings. Very easy plant. The color of the foliage is covered with tiny yellow flowers in the late spring summer and fall. This Sedum is hardy to zone 7. Even when it freezes to the ground it comes back in zones 7, 8 and 9.Another really easy seller. Great rock garden plant or used in a Sedum combo bowl. I drop a couple of branches of this into my Zonal Geranium patio planters. By summer they are trailing a few inches.
The 6″ pots here were shifted up from 4″ pots in September. They are very compact right now due to the cold greenhouse they are in. When they start to take off over the sides you will have about a dozen starts for 4″ pots. It’s a vicious cycle and just continues to pay off.
Like I said I hadn’t planned to sell anything here but if you want some of these I can take paypal. Who knows, if these sell maybe I will sell some plain greenhouse pots like I use. I’m pretty sure I can sell them for about half of what some of the greenhouse supply places sell them for and still make a little profit. thanks Steve.
