[Gardening] What to do with variety of decorative plants?

    I have recently returned after many years away and I started reorganizing all my old plants so I have grown many and have a big pile of decorative ones now.

    My question is this: What's the best thing to do with decorative plants? Does anything sell particularly well? The options as I see it are thus;

    1. set up vendor and sell plants directly
    2. make baskets - any certain baskets particularly popular?
    3. make dyes - any colors particularly popular?
    4. cleanup - plants aren't eligible for cleanup but what about dyes and/or reeds?

    I realize that I can do whatever I most feel like but the thing is I mostly don't need/want the plants, the dyes or more than a few of the baskets for myself so I'm looking for ways to get rid of them that will give me the best return available instead of just dumping em.

    Your best route is to go down the Dye route and sell the dyes. I'm not sure how the market looks for them but mostly people dont buy plants afaik

    Dyes will probably be your best seller, but there are quite often people looking for plants too, usually the plain snowdrops, campions or poppies.

    Hedges usually sell quickly too, but I agree that dyes are your best bet.
