Tip no.6: Sell Seeds for Cash
If you grow any unique or different types of flowers, fruits, or vegetables, consider selling the seeds. Many people feel bound by what commercial ‘home garden’ seed companies provide, but there is so much more available.
This has seen an increase in recent times with the worry about crops grown using genetically modified or GM seeds. Heirloom seeds, or those which are passed down or ‘natural seeds’ have seen a sharp increase in sales.
Whether it is an enormous pumpkin variety or a dainty flower, keen gardeners are always on the look-out for something new. Remember to get a photo of it when it’s looking its best, as it will sell much easier. You could advertise your seeds on eBay or its equivalent in your country.
Include instructions for planting in the packaging: When to plant, where to plant, the type of soil the plant prefers, etc. You should have all the information that you would normally see on the back of a seed packet. Type it up, print it out, and send a copy along with the seeds. This will ensure the customer is happy, and a happy customer will buy from you again. Plus they are also your best advertisement. If you exceed their expectations, they will leave a glowing review for you which will boost your business.
We use ebay and amazon to sell and that works well.
