Nursery Start-Up in Arizona
Hello. I've been growing African violets at home. I'd like to start a home-based business selling violets on-line. The following questions are, I think, such basic ones, but I've been unable to find answers. I also have read "So You Want to Start a Nursery" by Tony Avent. I hope someone could help.
1) Do you need a license to grow and sell plants? (I only have a retail license for my other on-line retail business.)
2) Do you need your plants inspected by the state? If so, how? Do they come over to you, or do you bring in sample plants to the Department of Agriculture?
3) Do you need a permit to ship interstate? I often see nursery catalogs saying, "This plant can not be shipped to such-and-such states," but how do you check all the states' restrictions?
