If you're thinking about growing perennials to sell or you are already growing some and you could use information to improve your production system, then you should join us for Perennial Production for Beginning Growers.

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.
