Welcome to LawnSite, Asher. Good to see someone really doing it, instead of blowing steam about it. I will need some time to review your website. In the meantime, are you using any of the items on your website as an operating FL PCO?

The problem I am looking at is that as one leans more toward pure organic plant management, one finds less and less to use as a legal operator in the sale of plant nourishment and pest control. No one here so far has shown how to be legitimate in selling a pure organic plant health care package that can be marketed by a licensed fert/pest operator.

I would also like to welcome Asher 68 to LS. Peace River Nursery is about 20 miles up Hwy 17 from my nursery. After receiving a letter of introduction I called and talked to a nice young man who said he was the owner. He had a degree of close to degree from U of Fla. I think. We only discussed availability of plants and prices. I have his price list and will more than likely be buying from him. However on a 431 plant install we are doing Grays Ornamental out of Del ray delivered the plants to the site at a very good price and top quality. This was a big job and no not my normal 30 to 70 plant job. Nurseries Are big investments and long term. I certainly wish Asher68 a lot of luck. I am sure he will do well and there certainly is enough business for all of us. The Nursery Business here in Florida works together and help each other. No one grows all the difference plants so we buy and sell to each other.

Welcome to LS. I am not an orgasmism person. However I believe in Organic and Synthetics or Bridge Produces. I am more of a Lurker on the organic forum and I post on the Pesticide forum. To my knowledge I am the only one in my county to have both Irrigation and Pesticide Licenses. Like Jim I need a little time to check out your website. However at first view it is appealing. If you are the same person I talked with on the phone then I think you are knowledgeable and should do well. I am sure we can do business. BTW Joe Powell speaks highly of you.

Now let me ask the same question Jim did about Organic Produces. Fla. Law Chapter 482 requires that any pesticide be applied by a Certified Pesticide Operator. It also states that it doesn't mater whether it is chemical, Organic, or mechanical. Case in point is a fellow in my county who advertised non-chemical Ant killing. He used a steamer and inserted it in the mound. One of the question on the CPO exam, answer is boiling water to kill ant mounds. However after a big fine from the BEPC this man is no longer offering Ant kill. All products sold as pesticides in the state of Florida require a EPA reg number, and all Products sold in the State of Florida as fertilizer must comply with Florida Fertilizer Law. I am not a Lawyer so I am up on all the laws. The nice thing about these forum is we can have a discussion and dis-agree without getting mad at each other.

It's kinda sad when you can't apply boiling water without a license.

Nothing sad about it. It is the LAW. I don't make the law just try and follow it.
