Re: Starting a nursery

Hi Pam,

   I've had the book for about a year and just started re-reading it.  
   I think it's written more for people who don't really know much about
   the nursery business to get them to start thinking about certain 
   issues, but it doesn't really talk about the specifics.  For example,
   he spends a lot of time talking about the difference between 
   wholesale, retail, and mailorder nurseries.  I figure that if you 
   don't know that before you decide to start a nursery, you're going
   to be in a world of hurt.  :)

   I was just reading an article about award caps from lawsuits:


   It's a pretty good article.

   Personally, I'm against caps because corporations will be more 
   negligent in safety matters because it won't cost them as much.
