    We have thought about it, but can't convince ourselves to do it. Running a full blown retail garden center is a really big task. We have decided to instead build 2 greenhouses and coldframes, and become self sufficient in our nursery stock( to an extent) . Each year we get incredible offers to buy out local suppliers of 1 and 3 gallon stock. Now , we will have the proper propagation and storage facility. I don't think I will ever do retail..Be careful of how many "cooks" you bring into the kitchen...With multiple investors come multiple headaches.....

    I would be afraid to carry stock over the winter. Do you know what you are doing, or just thought "hay, this would be fun" .
    I don't know anything about it but would think it would be a whole different ball game.
