    What would you charge for 30 flats of ivy installed. Just the labor side of things, and assume the bed is already prepped and ready to go...Thanks

    I could go as low as 50 cents profit per pot. But I would like to get 1 dollar to 2 dollars profit a pot if the customer has the money for it.

    also, here is a trick that makes planting that stuff quick and easy:
    go to home depot and get this little plant bulb auger that attaches to a 18v drill (i just use my 1/2" corded dewalt for the power). and use it to drill your holes from the pots. Its the exact size as a 4" pot. I drilled, planted and watered in 400 pots one time in a little over an hour. I HAVENT DUG A HOLE FOR A 4" POT SINCE, I USE IT ALL THE TIME. It actually stays connected to my drill, and thats the only use for that drill now.

    $720 for labor which includes adding root stimulant at the time of planting and again 1 week later.
