Starting a flower or gardening business online

Posted: 13/10/2015 at 08:22

That depends on the cost.

Most florists, even the small ones, have their own websites and online shops nowadays - for example, if I wanted to send my daughter some flowers I'd google florists and the name of her home town and come up with about a dozen to choose from, all of whom deliver.

What would you be offering in addition to that?

Talking of OCD/CDO - don't think I have it, but all my books are arranged properly - non-fiction according to subject, fiction alphabetically - likewise the CDs.  How else do you find the one you're looking for?   We've got hundreds of books.

Even the cookery books are grouped by author/subject matter e.g. Fish: Floyd, Stein etc - or is that COD?

Hostafan (aka Hosta) has more hostas than I've had hot dinners ... and that's saying something!

Morning Verdun and Lesley - you snuck in behind me

Good morning everyone   G'day Pat   Those are BIG ants!  

I've had a bit of a sleep in - hope Hosta's having one too. 

As I woke I found I was pondering on moving my Sum & Substance and Blue Angel hostas - I think the S&S need more sun to improve their colour ... I think the move will have to wait until we've got the tree down and the new bed dug, then we'll know what options we have for moving them ...

runner beans

I don't believe they'd grow - how are you going to store the seeds over the winter unless they're dried and you can't dry them until the pods are ripe and the seeds are mature.  Immature seeds won't grow. 

Sounds like an Old Wives' Tale to me.
