Tony's book, So You Want to Start a Nursery, published by Timber Press (, is now available. This comprehensive book touches on a broad range of issues that you will encounter as a prospective nursery owner. If you or someone you know has been thinking about the "n" word, save lots of time, money, and heartache by learning ahead of time what will be involved. Small nurseries looking to expand will also benefit from the detailed information. Topics covered range from selecting the type of nursery that you will start, selecting land, irrigation, writing a catalog, pricing plants, the effect of the nursery business on family relationships, handling employees, as well as marketing your plants. We think you will find this to be a thought-provoking information-packed book that fills a huge void in the practical how-to world of running a nursery.
