Sales Pitch....What cha think?

pitterpat_2009April 16, 2010

Sungold/early to ripen/sweet bursts of sunshine/

prolific/natures candy/ easy to call a fruit/


Grown in 4 inch pots,

with composted antibiotic and hormone free sheep manure

sifted on our farm.

$5.00 a 4 inch pot ( I am hoping 10 to 12 inch plants

What ya all think???? I will have 50 of these to sell

this year and am hoping to recover some of the $ I spent on seeds this year (man o man seed prices are making me look into saving my own seed for next year)

Now Pitter patter lets get atter!

Happy gardening to all!

Where are you selling? I sell my 2-3 inch pots for $2.00. I have 20+ varieties and sell a fair number of them. I have close to 500-600 to sell this year. I also sell peppers and hanging baskets of tomatoes.

I sell plants that size for $3 and $5 for gallon pots. I don't have a problem with those prices. Actually that was last years prices. I have found that cherry-sized tomatoes don't sell as well as the larger fruit sized plants.

Otherwise, it looks really good. Are you going to print up a sign stating the above? I would, it will save alot of talking. Sometimes, the customers don't want to talk just wants to get the info and buy.

I printed "sales pitches" like that for my plants last year on the back of index cards. I sold heirloom vegetable plants so I gave a little history and description of each one. It worked well. I did more cherry varieties than bigger sized tomatoes and should have done it the other way around. Also, I stuck to heirlooms and I had a few customers who wanted those hybrids.
