To Be Covered
Dr. Robert Berghage will discuss start-up considerations and production basics including setting up a production facility, plug versus seed production, choosing potting media, irrigation, fertility, pest management and overwintering your plants.
There will be an opportunity to ask questions and network with other new growers. Learn what is working well for other growers, and find out what new plants are out there. This class may help you decide which plants will make money for your business and fit your market niche.
