Can You Make Money Flower Farming – Income Year 1

I get real with you guys on what I spent this year flower farming and what I made or the income I brought in. Keep in mind income is different from sales. Flower farming for profit is totally doable. It is all about how you start out and what your business goals are. This is not a get rich process but with patience and consistency a full time income is possible. So in short, YES, you can make money flower farming.

    Will you need to purchase seeds and bulbs again? Or were you able to collect seeds for the next year?

    Im not suprised you made 0, we did as well in our first year, lol. My wife has her finger on the pulse of what people want though, so I think we will be able to sell lots of flowers next year.

    Did you feel like the Floret workshop was worth the $2000 in hindsight?

    This might be a dumb question and I apologize, but curious to know –
    Let’s say I start a flower farm outside and it’s thriving and it’s beautiful. Word is getting out about my beautiful flowers. (In my last business of 15 years word of mouth is how my business grew and how I got so much business.) My worry and maybe it’s dumb but theft?
    I’d be worried someone would come and take all my flowers and take all my hard work and potential profit. Being in an open space would be a concern to me. Have you ever wondered that yourself or heard of that happening?
    I only ask because where I live I constantly am hearing reports of people taking others flowers right out of their flowerbeds in front of their house!! A lady down the road from me grows irises every year and someone came and cut ALL OF THEM!
    Our property is fenced and secure however there isn’t really anything to steal in our open fields. I was thinking of doing a flower garden closer to my house, but do I really want to show off a huge yard of flowers?
    Just something I thought I’d ask and the chances of that happening I’m sure would be slim, I would probably lose it if I woke up and saw all my hard work gone!!

    I thought your comment about tracking time was really insightful.

    My first video & I def subscribed! Im a homeschool mom too. This is my 9th year. I am planning a cut garden now.

    O.k., Dahlias…..I’d say the #1 thing I have learned about growing Dahlias for several years is: The plants are 90% water (I have been told anyway), which means that they need WATER, WATER, WATER! During the Summer I have been watering with a hose 2 times a week, which takes me an hour and a half (1-2 minutes of deep watering each Dahlia)! Even that is barely enough with our PA heat. I hope to run Drip to them next year, as I think they would do better, and I would be glad for the extra time to do other things!
    We have a busy family with 6 boys ages 13 to 13 months. The older ones love to help with planting, and the younger ones love to hold the flowers as I gather them. We live on a farm, but are renting the house and yards and gardens–so I am limited to space, and being able plant as many perennials as I would like (since we will likely move in the next few years). Though I did put in 15 Peonies this Fall–I wanted to get them started awhile since it takes 3-4 years till you start getting a nice amount of blooms. 😉
    YAY for trying Lisianthus next year! I LOVE Lizzies!
    Well, I need to get back to my Saturday cleaning! Happy Flower Farming! 🙂 –Sarah

    How much of the $8000 was your labour?

  14. Stauffer 2005 on April 24, 2021 at 12:45 am

    Just found your channel…YAY! I’m REALLY enjoying the content!! I grow Dahlias (90+ varieties), Lisianthus, Sunflowers, Zinnias, Calendula, etc. I sell to a local Amish Lady who makes bouquets, and I make some bouquets for the small grocery store that we own. I am planning to majorly expand this next year with 600+ Tulips (hope to sell to our local florists too), and a whole seed tin of various kinds of mostly direct sow flowers (no greenhouse here 🙁 ). Thank you for being so real and honest about the REALITY of growing flowers to sell! I subscribed, and am so excited for more great tips! THANKS, Elizabeth!–Sarah from PA
