Introduction into Starting a Backyard Nursery

Duration: 2 hours

This is written as a guide for the person attempting to start or run a small nursery, herb or flower growing enterprise as a backyard operation on their larger property. It endeavours to include the most salient information and covers the most important topics you need to get you started. Use this as a starting point: Study closely the nursery industry and its sectors in your region – see what is and isn’t being done. Look at what plants and related products are currently in demand. Speak with appropriate government departments such as agriculture, forestry and other relevant authorities in your region; these places can help you with the detailed information you need to acquire that may not be covered here.
