It’s planting season in many parts of the United States, so gardening topics are on the minds of many people. The home and garden niche as a whole is a very friendly place to be overall, you’ll find entire communities devoting to helping and sharing tips and ideas. It can also be a very profitable place to be if you find your little corner of the web and you can talk about a topic with knowledge and you’re willing to take the time to be a part of the community.
Today’s niche pick is a very niched down gardening topic, specifically how to successfully grow your own blueberries. (Because have you seen how much a little basket of blueberries costs at the grocery store? My wallet cries a little every time my son asks for a basket of them.)

So let’s see what kind of affiliate products there are for the growing blueberries niche….
Amazon has 643 results in the books category alone, that’s usually the first good sign of things that people like.
Clickbank has plenty of gardening products to promote – indoor gardening, backyard gardening, aquaponic gardening, container gardening, and the list goes on and on. If you’re already familiar with gardening and you’ve grown blueberries successfully yourself, I recommend creating your own blueberry specific info product instead. It doesn’t even have to be that long, a short report with some photos and instructions would be awesome in this niche.
Don’t forget, gardeners need tools. You can find independent affiliate programs for supplies like gloves, trowels, containers, or you could stick with Amazon.
If you take this niche and run with it I’d enjoy seeing what you come up with. Drop me a comment or an email. And hey, if you need some help getting your site set up or you get stuck on something along the way, drop me a note for that too. I’d be glad to help you any way that I can.

Some good research!
Although I think that giving people these micro-niches on a blog is a bad idea if you want to use that, it’s showing everyone that you can find profitable niches to go into and there are still lots out there.
I have no intention of going into the blueberry niche personally, but I do see your point. Although, I like to think that with some effort and good content, saturation and competition don’t really matter much so I don’t worry about those. Copycats can be annoying, and content thieves are out there just waiting for people to share recent success stories so they can grab their stuff.
I know what you mean, there are people making a living off copying from blogs, but that’s a whole different can of worms :).
I think that you can be successful in any niche but they require different levels of work depending on saturation. Having said that though sometimes it is VERY good to go for a niche with lots of competitors as that’s a good sign that there’s money in it.
I also like the look of your keyword research tool, I might have to have a look at that.
