on average we charge 25 - 30 a flat including the cost of the flat. soil would be extra. i can buy flats here of say, impatients, for 11 dollars,profit 19 off the 1 flat. just an example, details change pricing.

I charge $30 a flat of 48 ct annuals. Includes bed topdressed with compost and one Osmocote application at planting. My flats run me wholesale about $8.50. I don't feel that this is quite a fair price. I would charge more if I could, but the market won't bear it. My competitors would do it for less than I. But I have lucrative garden maintenance contracts with all my annual install clients.
