How I Made $3,771.80 in 1 Day Working From Home... and How You Can Too!

In the above snapshot, you can see an overview of my Square account that I use to process credit card sales for my plants. You can
see on May 16, 2015, I sold $3,771.80 worth of plants... on just THAT day. This doesn't include all of the cash and checks I took too!

Would You Like to Get $4.97 for Each Cutting That You Grow?

Dear Friend,

If you’d like to quietly get paid to garden, right in your own backyard, then this will be the most important message you’ll ever read.

Here’s why...

Right now there’s a hidden opportunity that’s in extremely high demand. I’m serious. I get phone calls weekly from people in desperate need. People wanting to hand me $200, $300, even $600!! I mean, they’re begging me!

I have to turn them away. I just can’t keep up with the demand. And, it’s the same all across the country. People are desperate but can’t find what they need.

Hi, my name is Mike McGroarty. In the photo below, you can see me, my wife Pam, our little yellow dog Ally, and our two miniature donkeys Fergus (on the left) and Finnegan (hiding behind us).


I've been capitalizing on this hidden opportunity for more than twenty years now.

And... I’d like to share this secret opportunity with you. BUT... you have to promise not to spread the word. So, SHHHH! Keep this to yourself.

But before I tell you about it, let me make something perfectly clear:

This isn’t one of those “Get Rich Quick” scams that promises you easy money and no work.

Here’s the deal...

I’ve been doing this since 1992. It’s not one of those “here today, gone tomorrow” type of things. This is a REAL opportunity.

More importantly, for the people in need, it’s a REAL problem. A problem you, yourself, can solve.

You can literally...

Get Paid to Garden in Your Own Backyard

The best part is, it’s SUPER easy! AND... it requires very little space.

It doesn’t matter if you live on a 40-acre farm or in a subdivision on a tenth of an acre... YOU CAN DO THIS!

It doesn’t matter if you’re 7 years old or 70 years old... YOU CAN DO THIS!

It doesn’t matter if you’re a “young buck”, full of spit and vinegar, or if you’re in a wheelchair... YOU CAN DO THIS!

Are you catching on?

ANYONE can do this.

Now, you might be wondering, Mike, if it’s so dang easy, why aren’t more people doing it?

Good question.

The truth is, very few people even know this opportunity exists. The opportunity I’m referring to is...

...growing small plants.

The Demand for Small Plants Has Never Been Greater

Take a look at this excerpt from a recent article in the LA Times...

“A gardener of 32 years, whose business is based in La Crescenta (CA), said tracking down the native plants requested by clients can be tricky. ‘These things take time to grow,’ Zuzow said. ‘And nurseries just can't seem to grow them fast enough.’ Many don't carry them at all.”
-LA Times

Here's another recent quote from a large grower in North Carolina...

"If you thought it was difficult to find high quality shrubs and trees this spring, wait until this fall and even worse…2014.  Although the economic difficulties are far from over for everyone, the market for plants is increasing.  However, many nurseries have large gaps in their production due to the Great Recession.  This, coupled with many larger nurseries going out of business means plant shortages will abound everywhere."
-JoCoPlants, North Carolina

And another one from Landscape Architecture Magazine...

"The nursery industry has been battered. Nursery owners had ramped up production in an overheated economy. When the real estate bubble burst, they dumped trees and stopped putting more in the pipeline. Hundreds of nurseries went out of business. Now, growers say, it seems the recession is catching up all over again in a scarcity of plants, especially the most popular shrubs. And the nurseries that have survived are now raising their prices due to the high demand."
-Anne Raver, Landscape Architecture Magazine

Here's one more from the Farwest Trade Show...

"Over the past 25 years, the nursery industry has seen major swings in product supply and demand. According to reports from several growers and sales representatives, the industry is in the midst of another landscape change. “Across the board in the industry there are shortages,” said John Coulter of Fisher Farms LLC in Gaston, Ore. 'Everyone, with the downturn in the economy, cut their production of plants back severely because they weren’t selling. We are going to see shortages in the marketplace for the next one to three years.'"
-The Farwest Trade Show, Portland, OR

That’s just a few examples of the many out there.

Hundreds, if not thousands, of cities all across America are experiencing the exact same problem.

The nurseries just can’t keep up with the demand.

Take a look at the picture below...

Sold out garden center racks are a strong indication of the demand for small plants.
*Photo courtesy of Today's Garden Center.

Like I said earlier, I get people calling me every week wanting to place orders and I have to turn them away.

I’m literally turning away hundreds of dollars worth of orders each and every week because I don’t have enough plants to sell.

This problem is two-fold:

  1. Nurseries can’t grow plants fastest enough to supply the box stores and garden centers.
  2. The box stores and garden centers can’t get their hands on enough plants to supply to their retail customers.

So, there’s a definite demand for small plants and a HUGE shortage of suppliers.

But how can YOU get started with this? Is there a system or a guide on how to get started growing and selling plants?

There is, and that’s exactly what this page is all about. You see...

I've Been Teaching People All Over the World How to Do This Since 1996.


In fact, in 2000, Mother Earth News Magazine came out to my house and did a whole piece on my story.

That was really cool!

Over the past 20 years I’ve seen it all. Every mistake that could be made, I’ve made it... or I’ve seen someone else make it.

I’ve tried every method of growing known to man. I know what works and what doesn’t.

Every day I talk with growers all over the country. I hear about their trials and tribulations. I also hear about their biggest successes.

What I’ve done is taken everything I’ve learned over the past 20 years, everything I’ve learned while consulting with some of the most successful backyard growers in the country, and came up with the ideal formula for growing and selling small plants from home.

When I was finished, I was left with a simple, easy-to-follow Quick-Start Guide that incorporated all my best practices. It's called... The Backyard Cash Machine.

Here’s a sampling of what’s covered in this guide...

  • How to turn $33 into $2,733.50 by simply “clipping, stripping, and sticking” (page 6)
  • How to ensure you ALWAYS have a profit margin of 92% or more (page 8)
  • The Fastest Path to the Cash - how to start with nothing and have a sell-able plant in as little as two weeks (page 9)
  • The Amazing Multiplication Effect - how to turn one plant into hundreds, resulting in an endless supply of plants for you to sell and profit from (page 10)
  • How to sell hundreds (or even thousands) of plants to people all across the country - learn how to ship plants from home to anyone, anywhere and avoid face-to-face selling (page 13)
  • The only licenses and permits you need - they’re very basic, easy to get, and inexpensive (page 15)
  • Three simple ways to find the perfect plants to grow that will thrive in your area and will sell like crazy (page 21)
  • How growing patented or trademarked plants could get you fined, sued, and even thrown in jail - learn how to tell if a plant is patented or trademarked (page 17)
  • Two little-known types of plant buyers who are in desperate need and are looking to buy as much as $10,000 worth of plants per year from someone like you - there are hundreds of them in your area (page 28)
  • My secret potting soil recipe that has taken me 20 years to perfect and that plants LOVE!! (page 47)
  • How to use Facebook to sell your plants - gotta love free advertising! (page 54)
  • How to sell thousands of plants WITHOUT your neighbors, family, or friends even knowing about it (page 54)
  • How to get free boxes to use to ship your plants with in the mail (page 54)

...and SOOO much more!

Personally, I wouldn’t attempt this without having a proven, step-by-step guide to follow.

I mean it...

Don’t Grow a SINGLE Plant Until You Read This Guide

I’ve already done all the hard work, made all the mistakes and figured out what works (and what doesn’t). And believe me, I made some mistakes along the way…

…and I do this stuff for a living!!

That’s why I’m so careful to only document WHAT WORKS and include it in a simple, easy-to-follow guide so everyone can duplicate my results in their own backyard.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How much money do I need to get started with this?

A. You can start with nothing. Seriously. If you have plants around your house already that you can take cuttings from (and you know the variety), you’re good to go.

Q. Why are you only charging $7?

A. If you’re thinking “$7 is cheap…what’s the catch?” then here are three reasons that should put your mind at ease:

  1. $7 puts this information within the reach of everyone… (And at $7, you shouldn’t have to skip any meals or get approval from your significant other.)
  2. It weeds out the freebie-seekers. I only want serious folks who will take action, and in my experience charging anything…even if it’s just $1…gets rid of 99% of those knuckleheads.
  3. I also believe that once you experience this Quick-Start Guide, you’ll want more and maybe…just maybe…you’ll come back, buy more and possibly even upgrade to BYG University where you get access to my complete Backyard Grower’s Library.

But that’s it…

No fine print…no “hidden trials”…no smoke and mirrors. Just the information you need and the results you want.

Q. Is there a guarantee?

A. Yep…you have a 60-day, no-questions-asked money-back guarantee.

In other words, if you aren’t happy for any reason, just let me know and I’ll give you your money back. I obviously don’t think it’ll come to that, but if you’re even the least bit worried if this will work for you, then I’ll put your mind at ease. You either get the results you want or you get your money back. It’s as simple as that!

Q. How long will it take to get access to this guide?

A. Immediate.

Instructions on how to download the digital eBook will be sent to the email address you provide.

Q. Do you have any examples or case studies of other people who have used your guide to get good results?

A. Here are just a few…

“Yesterday I sold 5, 3-gallon Purple Sandcherries for $15.00 each. I paid $0.25 each for them (close out/end of season sale at Lowe’s). I invested $1.25 and sold them for $75.00. This is insane! In a good way! Not as good as growing a cutting from "nothing" and selling for $4.97, but OMG is this awesome or what??? Friday, one customer bought $175.00 worth of plants that cost me less than $5.00 to produce. It's so funny because my "friends" tell me that if I add up all the hours and hard work I put into this, the monetary reward comes out to very little per hour. I just smile and nod my head. I love working with plants. And BTW how much are they making watching soaps and Jerry Springer? Oh and don't forget they have to pay to go to the gym. Who's the fool now? LOL! I haven't even started my ads yet and I've already sold over $500.00 worth of plants. I don't officially open for a few more weeks! Thanks again Mike!”
-Laura, from Port Jervis, NY


“Wow! Great three day sale. We advertised for 3 days this week and in that 3 days made $4,500.00! That is without most of our regular customers coming by yet. It is unbelievable how many plants went out of here this week. People coming with the ad in hand with things circled . Amazing how many people didn't know we were here and also how far they came to get here!!! Again, Thank You MikeÖyou are still my HERO!!!”
-Ron and Bonnie, from Conneaut Lake, PA


“I live in the heart of nurseryland here in Oregon and I have four very close personal friends who are in the quote, unquote Big-Boy-Nursery-Business here. When I talked to them about starting my own backyard nursery they all told me it was too much work and there was no money in it. But growing is my passion and I knew it was something I wanted to do and could do. I was getting pretty frustrated with my friends so I started searching online and came across your program and... oh my gosh, what a difference it has made in my life. I figured out why these Big Boys told me it wasn’t something I should do and that I wouldn’t make money... because they didn’t want to share the wealth. My belief is there’s enough for everyone so, shame on them. On a personal note, I lost my 28-year-old daughter a year ago. Your program is what got me out of bed almost every morning for a whole year. I actually had something to get up for in the morning when there were mornings where there was no other reason at all for me to get out of bed. So, it pretty much saved my life as far as I’m concerned. Truly I speak from my heart when I say that. It’s brought so much joy into my life and I’m happy that I could share my story!”
-Gretchen, from Boring, OR


“All my life I wanted a small nursery. I even went to college and took Greenhouse Operation and Management. Every single person, including my professors and greenhouse owners, told me it would be impossible to get started for under $60,000 to $100,000. They convinced me to give up my hope. Then, along comes Mike, and tells you and SHOWS you how to have your own little nursery that can be started on ANY budget level from buying a pack of seeds, to starting out on your front porch, back porch, under a tree in your yard, even on a tiny card table. Then you grow that little beginning to whatever size you want. Yes, it takes work but you’re pursuing your dreams, not letting it wither away in the back of your mind. Mike teaches you what no one else will. How to keep it simple, easy, and cheap. There’s not another business I can think of that you can start this cheap. I can’t thank Mike enough for bringing my dream of a backyard nursery to a reality when everyone else had dashed my hopes to smithereens. Thank you Mike!”
-Phyllis, from Hot Springs, AR


“We did $3,935 in two days. I had about 2100 plants on hand ready to sell. 95% of these plants were $4.97. That is what brought people to the sale. I figure I made $3000 off of those plants by themselves. You want the bulk of your sales to be things you grew and are able to sell for $4.97. That’s where the profit margin is.”
-Jeremy, from Morganton, NC


“Amazing! Did almost $600.00 in the pouring rain (3" in 6 hours) on a Friday. Total for that week was almost $4,000. We also had a two day sale last Friday and Saturday with only people invited from our email list. We sold over $4,000 and most of the plants had no flowers and are still dormant! We had another sale this week and were just shy of $7,500.00 in sales. My fourth sale of the spring. I'm not bragging. We work very hard and advertise using Mike’s ad.”
-Tom, from Lititz, PA


“Had our first sale of year today, Saturday. Invitation only sale for people on our mailing list. Did $5,060 in just over six hours.”
-Tom and Patty, from Bend, OR


“I had a hubby who was scoffing at me for starting my business. My kids, too, were skeptical. All that ended after my first sale when I made over $2,000. Now they take me seriously. Every year gets better. I have expanded my table area (I don't grow in the ground due to the difficulty of me or hubby digging up huge plants) and still I need more room. I think I have about 1/12th of an acre of usage. Grow it, and they will come... and buy!”
-Jeanne, from Egg Harbor Township, NJ


“Oh Yeah!!!! I am excited. Total sales in 6 hours is $902.00. $853.00 from craigslist and $49.00 from "plant sign". Everyone was amazed at how good my plants looked from the photos posted. Talk about being stoked. Gotta love it!!! Sold quite a few cactus and succulents. Also Crape Myrtles and Pomegranate trees did very well. I couldn't believe that I could have this much fun and not get in trouble!!!”
-Tom, from Tucson, AZ


“Hi I'm Van Atkins of V @ B Nursery, the B is my Grandson Bobby he has been a big help for the past several years. He is 14 now and doing just about everything, my back has been giving me trouble for several years and it came to the point where I had to get it fixed, so I had surgery this past Wednesday. So now I'm not able to do anything for a spell. Bobby has been doing the shipping of the Mexican Petunias and I'm proud of him he has done all the work. I was wondering what was the condition of the plants when they were received? Please reply. He Had a plant sale here at the yard this past Fri. and Sat. and made $ 600.00, he did great! I will check back later I can only sit here for a few minutes.”
-Van, from Charleston, SC


“I had my first small plant sale and made $500.00 with one sale. I had over 100 huckleberry plants in 4-inch salvaged pots that I had started around the first of May along with some other things. I came in too late for this seasons big sale time, so I did what I could. I planted things I thought would sell quick and took hundreds of cuttings for next year. I ran one little free ad (using Mike’s suggested source) on July 6th and sold exactly 100 plants. A woman, from a nursery not far from me, called and asked how many of the huckleberries I had. She offered to buy 100 of them then asked me the price. I said $4.98. She said, SOLD! She came later and picked them up. It really is that simple! Thank you very much Mike!”
-Brian, from Tampa, FL


“Just concluded a two day sale... gross sales were $2,300.00. Excluding my labor, about 75 percent profit. Lots of good comments regarding the quality of the plants and, of course, the customers loved the prices! Good growing to all!”
-Jim, from Newport, TN


“Had our first driveway/yard sale on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday afternoon. We did about $2,400. We're pleased. Small town, 12,000 people. Closest large city is 85 miles away. Special thanks to Mike for everything! I'm happy!”
-Bob, from Southern KY


“My name is James from Athens, AL. I’m a newbie, myself and I know a lot of you may have concern or doubt that this won’t work. First, let me say this... IT WORKS!!!! I started out with very little cash. I’m unemployed and I take care of my cancer-sick wife. I have been real busy with my wife's illness and haven’t had a sale yet. Two days ago I decided to have my first $4.97 sale. I had 2 different size pots to offer. The smaller pots (1/2 gal.), I sold for $4.97 and the larger pots (1gal.) I sold for $6.97. It didn’t matter what the plant was in the pots. I had a total of 120 small pots and 70 larger pots. I used the ad that Mike came up added my plants to it. The results were AWESOME!!!!!! I only had about 15 customers for a total sales of $537.00. I only had one guy that didn’t buy anything because he was looking for some large Japanese Maples (which i didn’t have) I had one guy buy all 30 of my small Japanese Maples and most of the other people spent at least $20.00. I have enough plants for 2 more sales. So all I want to say is that Mike's system really works!!!!! Just do what he does and you will make money doing it. And, I want to give a very big THANK YOU to Mike for all of his hard work developing this system. Thanks Mike!”
-James, from Athens, AL


“Two farmer’s market sales and one flea market sale and I have over $1200 to put in the bank. Fruit trees, tomato, pepper, eggplant, a few herbs, a few shrubs, and lots of my hupertuffa. Did real good!!”
