Probably like several other forum members, I used to have a stall on a small local market/car boot.
After 2 years, I built up quite a loyal client base .........good knowledge of what you are selling together with the ability to offer advice and planting suggestions seemed to be the key. That was some 15 years ago before the "on line" habit really took off but gardeners do still like to buy what they can physically see........I know I do.
Without a doubt, there are a great many good nurseries and garden suppliers using the internet only but it will be a hard market to break into at this stage I think. There is also the problem of too much choice........competition is fine but there is a limit IMO.
