Hello again Ryan
Cant remember what I charged for plants but I did a range of small and bigger plants. The small ones would be quite cheap. Just look around and see what the garden centres charge and what the DIY guys charge. They usually are expensive so you shold be able to undercut them amd still make good profit.
The key is to understand the plants you grow......get a food supply of perlite if you are growing plants that like good drainage. Also for seed sowing.
I grew lots of tender plants too, plants that were bit unusual, grasses, and all kinds of perennials. Because I grow so many plants I'm always splitting them and I used to pot up large plamts.....like cannas, Phormiums, etc and these would be sold in mid to late summer as impressive specimens that were better than the GC had. So, I charged a lot for these and they always sold.
Ryan,you sound ideal. Keen, pleasant, eager to learn, prepared to work and energetic. Sure you will do well. Do it all slowly. You will get to know what plamts sell. The farmers' market sounds good ...??ou will learn a lot from other people there
