I have just read an e-book about starting a home business with a backyard nursey. I found out about it at http://www.freeplants.com/. I found it real interesting and I have a lot of area (4 acre + ) that I could use for this venture. I don't want to just jump in without doing a little homework and get some input. Has anybody read this e-book, and do you believe that this venture could prove profitable? Does anybody know what would be the best landscape plants, trees and shrubs and sell. What are in high demand year after year? What type of plant do retail and wholesale nurseries sell out of quickly and need to restock to keep up with the demand? If I sell retail, what does the public desire for themselves? I'm considering Japanesse Maples for one possible item. I live in Missouri about 1 hour outside of St. Louis. I understand that different parts of the country have diffrent possible demands, but I was just hoping to get an idea of what might be in demand. Are there any nursery folks or landscape folks that might give me some advice? Thanks in advance, all input will be appreciated.
