-> Lawrence, thanks for the list of uses for those species. I've
-definetly thought along the same lines. As to your suggestion of
-starting a plant nursery, there is a native plant nursery 2 km's down
-the road so I don't think I want to 'cut their grass' and start my own
-nursery. There may be a possibility of some sort of consignment deal
-with them to provide plant stock that they don't have.
This is a good plan to consider for extra income from nursery stock.
You could be a subcontractor for them. Contract grow out of
field-grown stock, B&B or container growout or produce liners or
seedlings for them from seed or cuttings using open site, lath house or
greenhouse. I expect you would broaden the range of plant material they
could sell and they would be glad to have you there as a reliable source
of nursery stock, from their inventory list and/or yours.
