I have been thinking about asking the local grocer if he would be interested in purchasing some house plants from me.  I see that he sells plants seasonally.  I even seen that he had locally grown produce.  Which I thought was amazing for him to do.  I know the man.  I have done business with him before.  I actually worked for him at one time.  The thought of asking him if he would be interested in my plants just scares me.  Only because I don't want to hear "No".  One thing for sure is I won't hear yes if I don't ask.   

So do it like this...

When you are casually talking to him ask if he ever buys plants from local people?  See what he says.  If he says he does you could say you have some and maybe how long you have had them and what they are.  If he says not really or no then just don't mention what you have.

How would you ever know if you don't ask? Just ask.

How fun it will be if he says yes. Not so bad if he says no. You're a big boy now so put on your big boy pants and ask. You'll live.

Besides, you can always come back to the forum postings and get some support if you are told no. It's not really a rejection of you by your friend if he declines your offer. And your FC friends will lift you back up. You know? :highfive:

Thank you.  That is so true.

It never hurts to ask.  Now if I could practice what I preach...

I fear rejection so I surely understand. But I do like some other suggestions here such as Farmers Market, yard sale.

Yeah this is a problem for me a lot.  I wish I didn't care so much.
