Learn all you need to know about starting a nursery or herb farm. Many nurseries or herb farm businesses can begin life on a small scale in the home garden. It’s often amazing how much can be produced, and the profit that can be made from a few hundred square metres of land. This book arms you with the basic information you need to make a start. It’s easy to read, and provides a rare insight into possibilities – in a way not commonly found in other books.
