I guess you fellas don't get inspections from the Ag. Inspector's.
As long as you aren't taking clippings from regiatered species......it is okay!
My landscape contractor's license allows me a 5,000 sq.ft. heel yard. It often will get a surprise inspection for such violations. The state will take anything that is registered otherwise. What species are you finding that has a out of date trademark for quick growth and resale.
Other than that..........I will make my own money by taking the plants from those that have them uprooted and removed. They go right into my stockpile for resale.
Maybe, it is a Arkansas thing only????
Didn't want to break in and offer bad news but to those that may think this is a easy business for growers, It isn't! If you play by the rules.
