Re: Starting a nursery

Our MG nursery has a little twist on that.  When possible, we order plants
that are already in our display gardens.  We have an open house party for 2
of our 3 plant sales.  We put a sign on the plant in the garden to tell
people it is in the sale.  At the sale we tell people "If you want to see
what this will look like in a few years, it is over there in the X garden."
It does help.  Sometimes we'll order a 16 or so of plant wholesale with the
intention of putting some in a garden and selling off the rest.  If you can
buy 16 Panicum 'Shenandoah' for under $2 each, but one large one for $20,
why not give the Ornamental grass garden 3 of them and sell the rest to pay
off the purchase?
