prefer buying their garden or kitchen plants from smaller plant nursery than that of the
commercial ones.” The reason being, the TRUST factor. They usually trust small nursery owners
as they get to meet the person who is behind everything, whereas, in commercial nurseries,
they get an attendent who is mostly an unqualified guy who doesn’t know much about plants or
gardening. So, let’s talk about the steps you need to
take. First: The Business Plan

a few of them, depending on the scale on which you are planning to execute this business
plan. You are going to need an office space to sit and talk to your customers, to prepare
their bills, to manage records of demand and supply, etc. Fourth: Identification of additional items
