I have been planning starting a retail space for plants and flowers this Spring. I'm sure we have all thought about it. I know I have thought about it for a few years. Now, I feel the time is right. I do have the time to add this space and work there about 20 hours a week. My wife would be there as well for about 40 hours a week. I have a location which is on a main drag through town and some signs. Also checked regulations and licenses and zoning. I have all my landscape suppliers from work I have done and a good idea of what I would like to start with. A small cold frame, 100 flats of flowers, some ornamentals, some of my wood products (trellises, gazebos, and misc.) and some pallets of mulch and dirt. I want this business to be an outlet for my wife to work in, market my service business, and expand a little. Has anyone tried this? I think start-up would be under $5000. Add some experiences and recommendations..... be constructive though, I don't want any aguements.
