Verdun- Actuslly a few miles from me, not too far from my nans they have a weekly market on a Wednesday morning, the only trouble is I have college then and wouldn't be ablonto attend. But we do have a farmers market once a month on a Saturday, maybe ill look into that, but it always seems chostall wth stalls. Yeah I do try to learn what the plants I grow need conditions and aspect wise sand flowering period etc, as I'd hate to think I was selli a plant to someone and it was just going to die. having done my own projects, I'm a fairly confident talker, and love chatting to people and helping them, as they always seem so greatful, must be something about us gardeners! :P It's really interesting to know that you made a small business out of it, would you mind sharing what kinda plants you sold and how much you charged etc? Don't worry if not
Dave- I actually think that's really inspirational what you've posted, thankyou very much Due to my age, I'm not quite sure I'm old enough to have a proper business account on ebay, but prehaps just a few listings, I think you're allowed upto 100 a month? I'm thinking of going down to my local nursery to chat to him, but I don't know that he'd wil too willing to help, as I'd be competition potentially ( as he literally has 2 medium sized polytunnels, it's really tiny).
