This might be the book he is talking about - Nursery Management: Administration and Culture (4th Edition) - Harold Davidson. Search in amazon you'll find it. He's right though it is expensive but in return very good info. If you just want a smaller cheaper book try this one (also on amazon). So You Want to Start a Nursery by Tony Avent. I would get this one and read it and go from there.

Keep in mind starting a "Nursery" is MUCH HARDER than people think. Most growers now have a lot of mechanicalized machinery not to mention how expensive it is. They know there cost down to penny's (especially in growing annuals/perennials).

But I am sure you are talking about just doing it a side venture am I correct? Maybe grow for you own needs and sell whatever you can't use?
