figrat thank you for the photo inow seem to remember reading about it in the ocal paper last yera. was he not on one of those channel4 tvshows, the lady wife seems to remember seeing it a few years ago and saying that weshould go and have a looke.joslow i have collected some seeds from my eucomis but i then reed that it takes 5 ysera for them to flower so i wondereed if you could grow them another way, i may try chritophe2 idea of looking for bulbets as that seems much quicker.why would i need to press ignore.

hellochristoper2 i just wanted to thankyou again for the advice that you gacev me it has given me a lot to think about, i am not sure that i can achieve what you did as i keep adding up the costs and it seems too much to make a profit but i woll have a rethink about how to go about it.is there a limit to how frequently you vcan post on here as i did not see that when i signed up.i ave enjoyed reading the info on this website and it has given me some new ideas for my garden.obviously i will have to ask the good lady wife before i make any such changes if i want my shirts ironed ans dinner on the table. i am thining about putting some grasses in my garden do you have any suggestions of one that will like the south west.

christoher2 thanks so much for the advice, I am in Exmouth so if we have a mild winter it should be ok here. I do grow my own plants and i suppose i could divide a lot more plants in the garden to start to stock the nursery.i am trying to decide whether to concentrat on bedding plants or to go for more expensive perennials.my main concern is not pricing so low that i do not make a profit and also how i am going to find the customers as i do not live on a busy street.

cheers Keith

Christopher2 I am interested in starting my own nursery and wonder if you could pass on some advice. What were your top sellers and what sort of margins did you work to. Is there any  tips that you can pass on?
