Learn more about selling plants

  • Plants can help liven up spaces and they are decorative element that never goes out of style. If you want to sell plants online you should first decide if you want to grow your plants or buy them wholesale. Second, as plants can grow or wilt over time, high-quality, accurate product photos and descriptions to show the customers what to expect are imporant. Shopify templates give you the freedom to create an online store to showcase your plants in no time.

  • You can create your online store using Shopify and sell a wide variety of plants. In fact, merchants can use Shopify as their ecommerce platform and integrate the products they already have uploaded into other platforms. By integrating with third-party stores or social networks, Shopify merchants can save time and effort when selling their plants to a larger audience.

  • Yes, you can. You only need a plant nursery and a Shopify plan to get started. Shopify provides you with templates to easily design your store website, SEO tools, and integrated payment gateways. Also, a Shopify store helps you drive visitors and customers to your brick-and-mortar store if you have one, enabling merchants to create omnichannel experiences.

  • If you have a rare collection of plants, especially species in high demand like orchids and tulips, you can make a solid profit. Also, keep in mind that some kinds of plants such as succulents and cacti are getting popular on social media, which increases people’s interest in certain species of plants and thus ups their value.

  • The price of each plant depends on how unusual each species is. To price your plants correctly, you need to consider that the price changes according to the phase of growth of the plant, the meaning each plant might have for people of different cultures, its fragrance, the supply chain costs, and your plant’s functional value. For example, fruit trees won’t cost the same as a daisy, and your pricing strategy needs to reflect those differences. Also, taking a look at several stores that would be close competitors to your business in your region helps establish a benchmark for what you can charge.

  • The most profitable and easy to grow plants, even for small growers, are specialty crops. Plants such as lavender, gourmet mushrooms, indoor bonsai plants, garlic, bamboo, landscaping trees, and herbs have increased in value because people use them for culinary and medicinal purposes. On the other hand, we have succulents and house plants, which are booming in popularity as well.
