Go for it, girl, you will enjoy it more than anything you have done in your life, we need more specialist nurseries, keep out the bog standard imported stuff to be found at most garden centres and supermarkets.
Choose your selected speciality plants carefully, many have been ' done to death '
Hardy geraniums are good to start with, source the rarer cultivars, then propagate them vegetatively, not many people supply the wonderful psilostemon geraniums, a gorgeous Summer plant, then take seed and propagate them and produce new varieties, you can then name these as Aunt Mary or Uncle Fred, and you will find that true mature gardeners are always looking for ' something different '
Good Luck !!
