20-25 bucks a piece includes plant and install or 15-18 bucks a plant plus your hourly fee =$$$ figure out how long it will take you and go from there.

I would charge $420 and guarantee them for 1 year.

$10 x 3 x 14 = $420

It would take me about 2 - 2.5 hours to plant with a total profit of $280
