All the money in gardening

Chris says: All the money in gardening is in propagation, nurseries and landscaping.

With cuttings, you get the identical plant. With seeds, you can get different plants.

There are excellent courses on propagation at TAFE – and good books at the library (check out the garden section).

Flower Power are the business people of gardening. The franchises are worth a lot of money.

For young people starting out, there are good opportunities for gardeners – trades are very important. Landscaping is a university degree.
