Greenhouse manufacturers meet growers early in the process of starting a new business and maintain the relationship potentially throughout the life of the greenhouse. They know a thing or two about starting a greenhouse business and building it from the ground up. Phil Bishop of Stuppy Greenhouse has recently posted a blog, Where to Begin When Starting a Commercial Greenhouse, that gives straightforward suggestions about how to create a strong plan for your growing operation.
If you are thinking about starting your own greenhouse, you are probably overwhelmed with thoughts of the unknown. What will you grow? How will you grow it? How will you sell it? What kind of equipment will you need?
