There’s one thing about succulents you may not know. THEY ARE ADDICTIVE! If you follow my blog, you may have noticed I LOVE succulents. Pair that with my love of junk containers and you can see why I use them often. I have planted them in wagons, rusty buckets, and even troll dolls!
I sell my planted containers at The Master Gardeners annual Lawn and Garden show and they are a big hit. Others have found their place at a local garden shop that showcases local goods.
Jacki Cammidge of Drought Smart plants says the addiction to succulents starts out innocently enough.
All of this “succulent love” got me started thinking. I have been wanting to supplement my income and start a part time business, take more plants to the garden show, and to the garden shop. Why not succulents? I haven’t seen any being sold there. Why not offer them in my etsy shop? I had considered this before but I didn’t know how to ship them.
Jacki has all of this answered and more. She’s created an E-course to help you start your own succulent business. All the information you will ever need is included in this course. Growing, shipping plants, ideas to promote your succulent business, are all offered as well as a lot more valuable tips.
Partner with a wedding planner to provide unusual decorations or wedding favors.
Be the “go to person” in your town to learn more about succulents. Speak to garden clubs, write an article for your local newspaper or magazine, or offer your service to plant succulents gardens for the public and local businesses.
There aren’t many businesses you can start for $99.00. The possibilities are endless, and the rewards are great when you are doing something you love. I encourage you to head over to Jacki’s page and get started now.

*Disclaimer: Jacki has graciously given me access to her succulent business course in exchange for this post. I’m planning to pursue my own business and I highly recommend this e-course.
