opening Greenhouse

I just finished reading dragonflyflower's post 'starting my own retail business' and all your answers. You all are very helpful.

I am in a similar position. I just left my job (moved to the country) in a Conservatory Gift Shop where I was responsible for plants (tropicals, Orchids and Bonsai), taking care, pricing etc.

When I left my boss asked if eventually I would provide plants to the Conservatory Gift Shop. Occasionally we had to buy plants from outside growers, because the 'overflow' from the Conservatory dried out sometimes. That's the good part. But where do I find tropical plugs? I did some research but could come up with foliage liners (Dieffenbachia and such).

I need a supplier for Gardenias, Begonias, Streps, Jasmins, anything unusual and preferably scented. I just went to Logee's Website. That's what I am looking for.

Does anybody know. Any help is very much appreciated.

Claudia------- Theres a company in Mosinee Wi called Tropical Gardens. They have route trucks that go all over the midwest. Give them a call and see if they have the goods your looking for . Just A Thought --Upnortdareh

Begonias and Streps should be super easy to prop, if you are so inclined!
