Roger Higgins of Roger’s Backyard Nursery in Cranesville, Pa has really impressed me not only with how successful a plant propagator he has become after Joining Our Backyard Growers Group, but with how efficiently he uses the limited space in his yard. I think I like Roger’s place because it reminds me of My First Backyard Nursery.

Roger has a pretty impressive, space saving set up in his backyard. Roger’s entire yard, front and back is instrumental in what he does with his backyard nursery. In the spring he and is wife, Venice, put plants out front for sale, but he also has specimen “stock plants” planted all over his yard that he can show to interested customers. From those same plants, He Takes Thousands and Thousands of Cuttings.
Roger built these plant benches out of two by fours and fencing material. During the winter he stores all of the plants under the benches and Covers them with White Plastic. Come spring sale times Roger moves the plants to the top of the benches so customers can more easily see and handle them. Freshly potted plants go under the benches until they are ready to be sold.
Using drip irrigation to water container plants.
If you look closely, see the white PVC pipes sticking up all over the place? Those are tiny sprinklers, drip emitters really. What Roger has done is used the PVC not to run water through, but simple to hold the drip emitters in place. The drip emitters are connected and supplied water through small black tubing often refereed to as spaghetti tubing.
In other words, there is no water in the PVC lines. Inside the PVC is the spaghetti tubing. But Roger being all clever and handy like he is, he actually has an emitter on both the top and the bottom of each PVC pipe so all of the plants, those on the benches as well as those under the benches, get water. Pretty cool right?
I know you’re going to ask so here it is. Roger gets the drip emitters and tubing from a company called Drip Works. Google knows about them and will happily lead you right to them.
For more about what Roger does in this small area watch the movie . . .
Yea, it was raining that day. A lot! And it was only 37 degrees. So if you’ve never been soaking wet on a 37 degree day you should give it a whirl, it’s a hoot!
Duston was shooting the videos with an I-Pad and it was getting soaked so Roger got him this cute little umbrella. Me and Roger? We continued to get soaked!
Thank you Roger and Venice Higgins from Cranesville, Pa for allowing us into your backyard to make movies. We’re going to go back soon, hopefully on a warm dry day when all the plants look awesome!
