-====== ​Propagating Native Plants ​ ====== +======Seed ​Store====== 
-  * Amy Hereford +  ​- There are two stores: ebay and etsy. The ebay store is stronger since I've been selling there for a while and have almost 500 positive reviewsEtsy is easier ​to sell and I get a few pennies more per sale. 
-  * St. Louis Community College +  - You can run the sales from your phone or from the webIt might be easier ​to start with the web - I was able to do video tutorials of the two stores ​see below. 
-  * June 2017 +  - To mailyou put 30+ seeds in a pack I usually put 35-40, more of the climbing milkweed because the seeds aren't the greatest. Then put in a little piece of bubble wrap cut up old bubble wrap that I get in packages. Stick them in an envelope with one stamp and ship them off
-===== Overview ===== +
-Why Native Plants? +
-  * Propagation by Seed +
-  * – Identifying,​ Collecting, Storing, Treating, Sowing +
-  * Propagation by Cutting +
-  * – Hardwood Cutting, Softwood Cutting, Root Cutting, Layering +
-====Why? ===== +
-  ​* Beauty +
-  * Food and Habitat ​for pollinators ​and wildlife +
-  * Genetic resource +
-  * Decrease water use +
-  * Storm-water management +
-  * Decrease maintenance +
-  * Hold soil in place +

-===== Seeds – Collection ===== +
-  * Your own yard, or with permission +
-  * Allow seeds to mature +
-  * Collect in envelopes +
-  * Label: Plant name, Date, Place +
-  * Mature Seed Heads +
-  * Seeds – Storage ​and Treatment +
-  ​* Seeds should be fully mature and dry +
-  * Consider how they propagate in nature +
-  * – Spring or Fall seeds +
-  * Store in refrigerator or freezer, or cool basement +
-  * Stratification – 30-90 days cold treatment (wet or dry) +
-  * Scarification – breaking seed-coat – acid or abrasion +
-  * Prairiemoon database +
-  * Seeds – Sowing +
-  * Sow outside in winter – seeds will stratify naturally. +
-  * Sow thickly in the pot – you can separate once they germinate (full packet in 4” pot) +
-  * Label each pot with plant name and date +
-  * Keep watered once they sprout +
-  * Or sow indoors.... +
-  * Seeds – Transplant +
-  * Transplant sprouts ​to separate pots – grow out for a +
-  * few months – Grow Native seedling ID +
-  * Transplant sprouts directly to garden beds +
-  * Most wildflowers won’t flower in the first year +
-  * May want to plant with annuals +
-  * Sleep – Creep – Leap +
-  * Cutting – Hardwood +
-  * Take 1 year wood in the fall +
-  * Pencil thickness +
-  * 4-6 nodes +
-  ​* Cut top diagonally +
-  * Put in soil or medium over winter +
-  * Cutting – Softwood +
-  * Take during active growing season +
-  * 3-6 inches4-6 nodes +
-  * Strip leaves from lower part, trim upper leaves +
-  * Keep humidity up: spray or tent +
-  * Indirect lighting +
-  * Rooting hormone can help +
-  * Most will root in 2-4 weeks +
-  * Cutting – Root +
-  * Collect in late winter (label) +
-  * Pencil width is good +
-  * One or two nodes +
-  * 4-6 inches +
-  * Plant in pots and allow to leaf out +
-  * Plant in beds and mark clearly +
-  * Cutting – Layering +
-  * Simple layering: bend stem down to the ground and pin it there until it roots +
-  * Air-layering: Place a ball of soil around a growing stem, +
-  * keep soil moist, ​cut from plant when roots are showing through. +
-  * Cutting – Division+

-David Trinklein]]+  - click on ship items 
 +  - click on print shipping label - only to get the address, don't buy the label. 
 +  - address an envelope and put in seeds, stamp and send. 
 +  - click on relist - make it 10 days, relist up to 8 times. 
 +  - click on leave feedback - I usually give 5 stars and say something cheery - thanks for ordering - good ebayer - or some such.

 +Video Tutorial]]
 +
 +
 +  - Open the store manager
 +  - click on open orders - manage orders
 +  - **click that the order is sent - I think you have to click twice.** I forgot to put this on the video.
 +
 +=====Payment suggestion=====
 +
 +|  store  |  avg net  |  YTD sold  |  YTD income ​ |
 +|  eBay  |  $3.15/​packet ​ |  11  |  34.60  |
 +|  Etsy  |  $3.26/​packet ​ |  14  |  45.70  |
 +
 +Proposal - I'll venmo you $2/packet. At the end of each month send me a Venmo request. ​
 +
 +=====Change Emails=====
 +
 +  - We changed the email address for Etsy and eBay so you get the notifications.
 +
 +=====Completely turning over the shops=====
 +  - We could change the ID on ebay if you like. 
 +    - I use the eBay account for some purchases.
 +    - It is linked to my Paypal account. ​
 +    - It would be harder to completely turn this over since I use the paypal account for webcast payments. ​
 +  - If you would like to completely take over the Etsy account, you could. Change email, ID, bank account.
 +    - If you have an Etsy account, maybe you could just open your own shop and list them yourself. I don't have many sales anyway. Then I would get maybe $0.50/​packet.
