When selling plants online, there are a few key things you should keep in mind. Although any plant type can be sold, certain ones lend themselves more readily to homegrown cultivation than others.

Launch your business with just some seeds or cuttings – start small and build it around what matters to you and who needs the service.

Cost-effectiveness

To maximize the return on your marketing investment, it is critical that you have an in-depth knowledge of both what and who you’re selling to. A great way to do this is through creating an organized record system of records covering product, service and price aspects of your business as well as customer base information like where they buy from and their average spending per purchase – using these data points can allow for effective customer segmentation strategies that maximize returns while simultaneously keeping tabs on your bottom line in both good times and bad.

Variety

When purchasing seedlings, there are various places from which you can source them. Nurseries, home improvement stores and farmer’s markets all make great places for purchasing plants that will suit your growing conditions and produce abundant harvests for you.

Big-box stores should be avoided when searching for seedlings. Their seeds may not have been specifically developed to grow in your location, which could result in poorer results or plants without strong root systems or that haven’t produced fruit yet.

Seed companies that specialize in hard-to-find varieties are ideal for purchasing seeds. Their mission is to conserve heirloom varieties so they won’t become extinct from the market; some even provide special sale events and discounts for loyal customers.

Farm and garden centers can also be excellent resources for seed, offering an impressive selection of vegetables, flowers and herbs at reasonable prices that you can buy for the purpose of planting in your own backyard. In addition, these centers can provide invaluable advice and tips about their care as well as growing tips.

Assure the seed you purchase is named correctly to prevent any misrepresentations or confusion with home gardeners, or misrepresented through advertising and labeling. Awfully-labeled seed can pose many difficulties; an inexperienced home gardener might purchase it, while misrepresenting itself through advertising or labeling practices could misrepresent itself further still.

If you have questions regarding whether a particular seed name is suitable, contact either the Seed Regulatory and Testing Branch in USDA’s Livestock and Seed Program or the Seed and Brand Protection Division within Trademark Division of U.S. Patent Office for advice.

If you’re purchasing seed for a mixture or blend of multiple kinds, a rule allows the label to display percentages for each varietal component; however, the blend must still be clearly identified as such and shouldn’t give the impression that it is an individual variety. This rule applies to 36 kinds of agricultural and vegetable seed.
