Making up stories while shoping for grow
When ever I go to hardware in city to shop for grow room (sells everything) i feel the need to be ready for questions Or go to other shops like to buy soil i always have a story ready cuz they always ask..
What things are for?
What you growing?
When I got the electricity hooked up to shed with 12 power points lol made up hobby man cave stories lol then I refinance house with hydroponics all over bank statements so I found myself making up an aquarium story
How do you all deal with unforeseen questions? Are you always ready?
I am a bad liar too lol.
@bandit Yea used to feel that , buying red spec cfls by the dozen 🤣 Geography is a huge factor its illegal in the uk but I have the choice of 3 hydroshops in a 30 mile radius , My regular even takes phone orders leaves said items under a box out the back , cash in a brown envelope through the letterbox , that was covid precations , as for substraight ,rose garden,bonzai,succulents, cacti , are good ones explains the high end goods , also bombarding them with knowledge of another species to the point they wish they didnt ask 🤣 keep eye contact at all times 😵 😵 You will soon get the "Do you want my money or not vibe " 😉
@bandit way way back we used to buy 3 bags of rose compost cant remember wich john innes but 3 bags ,jcb bucket and my buddy like a prize winning chef guarding all these powders the git lol muggins mixing it all in a cemnt mixer 🤣
Haha i was the same with coco recently said i was taking a million cactus cuttings 🤣👍
I just get stuff delivered, delivery people don't ask questions 😎
Going to a shop I usually know what I'm going to buy and if asked anything, I just play dumb and say I was sent out shopping by my sister LOL
@jsh1973 yes shopping online made life easier although my PostOffice commented on keeping box right way as it sounds like liquids haha out comes another story. I live in a small country town where everyone knows you so guess I am paranoid especially when my tent was delivered with 'indoor tent' in big letters all over box errrrrr mail order doesn't always run smoothly lol
I never have these issues and my grow shop is very conservative...reckon most of the people that use it do actually grow vegetables and stuff...I now chat to the guys about what strains Im growing after shocking them after my 'no chance of corona here, I smoke too much weed' comment with a few of said vegetable growers in earshot 😀
Having the answers ready for all the questions is really important skill.
I have learnt over the years, I have an answer to nearly every question I could be asked
Only ones I would get stuck on is lights, filter and fans
I have a greenhouse with plants in all year round, I need lots of things to grow peas like mesh and garden wire, plant food
need sand, soil to grow carrots
could start peas off in peat plugs
need tube heaters, and Reflector sheet on some walls,
greenhouse door is opposite the shed door (5ft space)
answers all questions for pots, trays
grow broccoli over the winter in pots in the greenhouse,
just keep taking about you winter green house crop, need some more bamboo to keep the pea net up
Got to thrips attacking my carrots, got any fly paper ?

A lot of growers don't like to use the grow shops too often incase your spotted
I would probably lose my job if my boss see me comming out of a grow shop with soil, nutes, etc in January
can't talk my way out of this, no point trying
but if I use the garden center/ hardware shop 95% of the time and have answers ready, your unlikely to get seen doing anything illegal
Guy at grow shop " What do you need all that for then?"
Me: "Mind your own fucking business you cheeky prick"
Nothing you will by in the grow shop is illegal, man, seeds aint even illegal lol! Germinating them is.
If anyone in a grow shop asks you question and you feel uncomfortable tell, them! Be straight up and say, " look, with the kind of thing people come here for, do you think its a good idea to ask customers questions?"
I have been grow shop ore times than i can count, and nobody has ever asked me anything.
The thing that concerns me the most, is being seen going into, or coming out of said shop, by some one that knows me lol
Imagine going into the grow shop and you see your neighbour leaving with a new 1.2 m grow tent lmao!!
But dont forget, you dont have to incriminate yourself, so if in doubt, dont speak lol, and dont answer any questions 😉
