I am being asked to grow plants.....

Mistee17February 7, 2014

Hi - I, have been asked to grow plants for a land developing company. I ,was given a list of specific plants - 269 to be exact. Some of them I can grow, but some I will have to find and buy. How much should I charge for this entire deal? The company wants, mature plants they can install in a landscape design. Any, help or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Mistee

Mature plants of what? If trees, the project will take years.

Do you have any experience growing what they want?
If not, are you prepared for failure?
If you do have experience, why do you have to ask for help with pricing?

Sometimes, the wisest decision is to say "no". "Thanks for asking, but this project is more than my abilities at this time. Please keep me in mind in the future."
