Flowers Whether Picked or Planted Offer Income Potential

How do you pick the perfect cut flower to sell at the farmers market or roadside stand? Here are some things to consider:

  • Grow flowers that are easy to grow like sunflowers, zinnas, daisies.
  • Grow flowers that have stems so that you can bunch them for sale.
  • Offer a variety of colors.
  • Bunch flowers with mixed colors to reflect holidays like Fourth of July.
In Louisiana, only licensed florists are allowed to arrange flowers for sale. So be careful to bunch your flowers and place them in a vessel containing water to keep them fresh.
